Video: Who Inspires You? Hear what inspiration means for Sir Ken Robinson.
Sir Ken Robinson is an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources.
He was born into a modest income family in Liverpool, the fifth of seven children. He contracted polio when he was four and was sent to a school for disabled children. After an industrial accident his father became quadriplegic and yet continued to be central to their family lives. His parents encouraged him to pursue his education and to not allow his disability to define him. Later, he was included in a regular school, went on to university, and then on to an outstanding career in education.
Sir Robinson was knighted in June 2003 by Queen Elizabeth II for his achievements in creativity, education and the arts.
His latest book, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, was published in January 2009.
