THE ELEMENT: HOW FINDING YOUR PASSION CHANGES EVERYTHING
SIR KEN ROBINSON (VIDEO)
SEPTEMBER 30, 2009

Have you gone through your education with no clear idea of what it is that you love to and of what it is that you do best? From one of the world’s leading thinkers and speakers on creativity and self-fulfillment, a talk about talent, passion, and achievement.

The element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. When people arrive at the element, they feel most themselves and most inspired and achieve at their highest levels.

With a wry sense of humor, Ken Robinson looks at the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the element and those that stifle that possibility. He shows that age and occupation are no barrier, and that once we have found our path we can help others to do so as well. The Element shows the vital need to enhance creativity and innovation by thinking differently about human resources and imagination. It is also an essential strategy for transforming education, business, and communities to meet the challenges of living and succeeding in the twenty-first century.

    This was amazing! I’m so sad I missed the actual event. Is there any way at all that we can organize a showing of the whole event?

    That is an excellent idea. Any suggestions? When and where…

    The Global Lounge has great facilities…It would be nice on a Monday when there is no terry tales (terry can also promote terry tales there!).

    Alternatively, Woodward is also good if we need a bigger place.
