Richard Gerver

£0 - £5000

Richard Gerver, author of the best-selling and critically acclaimed books Simple Thinking and Change: Learn to Love It, Learn to Lead It, offers a ground-breaking look into how the world is dealing with the challenge of unleashing human potential and embracing and leading change.  Richard has taken innovation by storm. He has transitioned his global reputation for leadership in education and is now regarded as one of the most original and authentic thinkers around human leadership and organisational transformation. He has been named UK Business Speaker of the Year twice, most recently in 2015. A former TED speaker, he has shared a stage with some of the world’s most influential people, including the Dalai Lama.

 

He now works with organisations at the forefront of global innovation and excellence, including Microsoft, Deloitte, Google, TUI, Morgan Stanley, Visa, Puig, Telefonica and Technicolor. He has also worked with some of the world's most iconic retail organisations, including Harrods in London. His unique experience and insight into realising human potential also sees him working in elite sport, with Olympic and Paralympic coaches, EPL Soccer coaches, England Golf and professional cricket teams. He is currently working in the music industry helping them build capacity for dramatic yet sustainable change in a fast moving market.

 

Richard still works in Education globally and is recognised as one of the most significant voices in the field. His first book, Creating Tomorrow’s Schools Today (now in its second edition), has become a seminal text around the world for those engaged in the transformation of education. His reach goes from universities through to policy makers and school leadership. He has provided consultation to US presidential campaigns. He is the proud recipient of an Honorary Doctorate in Education from The University of Derby.

 

Gerver's unique insight into our development, from infants to adults, helps us to understand the nature of our personal and professional responses to risk, change, innovation and success. His ability to connect experiences across many seemingly different environments helps people to expand their thinking and their perception of their potential.

 

With his trademark humour and insight, Gerver shares his experience of cultural and organisational transformation, human development and management with groups around the world. Thanks to his story and his authentic first-hand experiences, Gerver has been described as one of the most inspirational leaders of his generation. He, however, argues that his work is focused on three words; communication, empowerment and impact.
