Shoulder of giants
It is rare to find someone who is articulate, clever and funny with something really important to say. When the subject is the future of education, trainers and facilitators should listen.
When that person is Sir Ken Robinson and his videos have been watched over 90 million times, you know that his messages are something really special.
I am sad that Ken passed away in 2020 but am proud that he took the time to share his vision and thoughts with trainingbusiness.com. He is sorely missed by all who value learning.

Harness your creativity
When you as a facilitator or coach are coming up with ideas for workshops and contents, some of your ideas will come to you ‘full-formed’. But the rest of your ideas needs to be refined.
Sir Ken explains the creative process of applying your imagination to problems and then figuring out whether they are any good.
Your ideas don’t have to be revolutionary or ‘brand new’ according to Ken, but they do have to be of value to the people you coach and train. Why else would they pay you to train them?
