My Latest TEDxTalk “How Schools Can Save Companies From Collapsing”

24249518530_4babf79e3f_kI was recently asked to participate in my third TEDx conference through the good people at TEDxLangleyED.

Their theme in 2016?

The Future of Education – Innovation & Inspiration

I decided to take the opportunity to discuss the link between what companies need in terms of graduates … and what schools of all shapes and sizes in the K-16 spectrum ought to be producing.

The title of the talk was “How Schools Can Save Companies From Collapsing” and you can watch it in its entirety below.

A huge thanks to John Pusic and Suzanne Hoffman for their invitation to speak and their continued quest to innovate and inspire. They are truly both innovators and inspiring.

    Nice talk Dan (and love the jacket!)

      Thanks Adi … and regarding the sartorial side of things, I had shoes to match the jacket but decided against too much plaid and went with the straight purple. There is only so much I can do to compensate for what my face/head looks like. 😉

Want to leave a comment? I'd love to hear from you. Cheers, dp.
