David Price, OBE, is a learning futurist and an expert in organisational learning for a complex future, Senior Associate at the Innovation Unit, and co-founder of We Do Things Differently, a culture change practice. He has spoken all over the world and combines warmth, wit and, on occasion, live music performance, to make serious issues accessible to any audience.
David is the best-selling author of, ‘How We'll Work, Live and Learn In The Future.’ Sir Ken Robinson commented on David's book that 'from every perspective, OPEN will open your mind to some of the real implications of digital technologies for how we live and learn in the 21st century.’
David writes, talks, trains and advises around the world on some of the biggest challenges facing business, education and society. He focuses on solving the problems of employee, student and civic disengagement and maximising the potential to be creative, innovative and fulfilled citizens as well as understanding the global shift towards open organisations and systems of learning. He opens minds through talks and masterclasses. He is an experienced facilitator, having led creative workshops with CEOs, Public Sector Leaders, Educators and Social Enterprises.Read More
For the past 10 years, David has led numerous international education projects, culminating in the writing of OPEN. His conclusion is that every business, every school, and every public institution needs to learn from the ways in which we engage with knowledge socially, because therein lies the answer to how to re-engage employees and students, and remain competitive, and relevant in a fast-moving world. His services to education led him to be awarded the OBE by Her Majesty The Queen in 2009.
David is always willing to craft a talk – within given parameters – to specific client needs.
