Creativity and Innovation Expert to Speak May 14

Sir Ken Robinson

One of the world’s leading thinkers on creativity and innovation in the workplace will speak at College of Business Administration’s Leadership Forum May 14 at the University Theatre.

As an advisor to Fortune 500 companies and governments in Europe, Asia and the United States, Sir Ken Robinson helps transform organizations’ corporate culture to focus more on fostering and developing creativity. His New York Times best-selling books also help people tap into their creative potential.

His ideas and research have made him a popular speaker on TED Talks. In fact, his 2006 and 2010 presentations have been seen by more than 200 million people in 150 countries, making Robinson the most-viewed speaker in the history of Ted.com.

Robinson will discuss creative leadership at 5 p.m. and will answer questions from the audience following his talk. Overflow rooms will be available in Ursa Major and Minor in the Bronco Student Center.

Leadership Forum is a special speaker series that aims to inspire and motivate leaders to transform business and society and is generously supported by 1971 accounting alumnus Ronald Gregoire and the Gregoire Family Trust.  Past Leadership Forum speakers include former Deloitte Chairman Sharon Allen, FUBU CEO and “Shark Tank” star Daymond John and Deutsch LA CEO Mike Sheldon.

The event is free but online registration is required by May 12. There is a $5 parking fee for guests without a Cal Poly Pomona permit.
