Richard Gerver

Author of Change: Learn to love it, learn to lead it

Overview

“"Richard Gerver is one of the clearest and most passionate voices for radical change both in education and in business. As a highly successful and revolutionary school principal he has transformed the expectations and achievements of children, teachers and communities alike. In his compelling presentations and books he now takes his powerful message of hope and possibility to educators, policy makers and business leaders around the world. It's a message that has to be heard."” Sir Ken Robinson

Richard is one of the most celebrated speakers in the world. His insights into change, leadership and education are unique thanks to his own extraordinary journey, which has seen him go from being a struggling actor, copywriter and estate agent, to becoming an award winning teacher and school principal, whose ground breaking work in education was celebrated by the British National Teaching awards and UNESCO amongst others. On leaving his twenty year career in education he has worked to explore the links between great leadership, human potential, change and innovation. In 2011 he was awarded the title of Business Speaker of the Year and has written two critically acclaimed best-selling books: Creating Tomorrow’s Schools Today (Bloomsbury) and Change; Learn to Love it, Learn to Lead it (Portfolio Penguin).

Richard travels from Derby and will be available for a briefing prior to any event.
