Internationally recognized leader and speaker on the importance of creativity in educating today’s workforce, Sir Ken Robinson, will headline the 2015 Creativity World Forum in Oklahoma City, March 31. Sir Ken returns to Oklahoma after serving as national advisor to the startup of Creative Oklahoma in 2005 and returns for the ten-year celebration.
The theme of this special international Forum is “All Our Futures: Ideas That Matter,” based on Sir Ken Robinson’s widely acclaimed publication All Our Futures: Creativity, Culture and Education. This 1998 publication was the culminating work of a special commission led by Sir Ken on the importance of creativity, education and the economy that led to sweeping changes in the UK during Tony Blair’s administration.
Sir Ken has gained international recognition through his 2006 and 2010 appearances at the TED conference and the online views of those talks. With an estimated 200 million views from 150 different countries, Sir Ken has the distinction of being the most viewed TED Talk presenter in the organization’s history.
He currently works with governments in Europe, Asia and the USA, international agencies, Fortune 500 companies and some of the world’s leading cultural organizations and speaks to audiences throughout the world about the creative challenges facing business and education in the new global economies.
