Richard Gerver, author of the bestselling 'Change: Learn to Love It, Learn to Lead It' offers a groundbreaking look into how the world is dealing with the challenge of unleashing human potential and embracing and leading change.
A former school principal and advisor to the UK Government, Gerver has taken innovation by storm with a global reputation for leadership in education. He is regarded as one of the most original and authentic thinkers around human leadership and organisational transformation in the world. He has been named UK Business Speaker of the Year in 2011 and has spoken at both TED and RSA events.
Richard 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.
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 with Universal and Decca, helping them build capacity for dramatic yet sustainable change in a fast moving market.
He 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' 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 recently provided consultation to the Hilary Clinton 2016 Presidential campaign team and is the proud recipient of an Honorary Doctorate in Education from The University of Derby.
Richard 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, creativity and development. His ability to connect experiences across many seemingly different environments helps people to expand their thinking and their perception of their potential.
He shares his experience of cultural and organisational transformation, human development and management with groups around the world and is one of the most inspirational leaders of his generation. He, however, argues that his work is focused on three words; communication, empowerment and impact.
His highly anticipated third book 'Simplicity; An Uncomplicated Guide to Success' will be published in September 2016 by Capstone/Wiley.
