Each week Maria Franzoni, Speaker Bureau Director, invites one of her speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.
This week Maria’s guest on the show is David Price. David is an expert in organisational learning for a complex future. He is a senior associate at The Innovation Unit and co-founder of We Do Things Differently, a cultural change practise. His book, Open: How We’ll Work, Live, and Learn in the Future, has been an Amazon bestseller since its publication. In 2009, he was awarded the OBE by Her Majesty the Queen. He writes, talks, trains, and advises around the world on some of the biggest challenges facing business, education, and society, solving the problems of employees, student, and civic disengagement, maximising our potential to be creative, innovative, and fulfilled citizens, and understanding the global shift towards open organisations and systems of learning.
David talks about his fascination with how people learn informally, shares his thoughts on the education system, talks about engagement & learning and what we expect from his new book. David tells about some major health challenges he has dealt with and what he said to the queen when receiving his OBE.
“We are finally recognising this thing that I call social learning, which is our capacity to learn from one another.”
Join us next week when Maria’s guest will be the Neuroscientist and Founder and CEO of Lab of Misfits Studio, Beau Lotto
