Biography

Richard Gerver has been described as one of the most inspirational leaders of his generation. He argues however, that great leadership is about serving the needs of the people that work for him and rely upon him. The three core principles that underpin his philosophy are communication, empowerment, and impact.

Mr. Gerver began his working life as an actor who worked as an advertising copywriter to make ends meet. He began a teaching career in 1992 and rose through the ranks fast being identified by the school's inspectorate in 1997 as one of the most outstanding teachers in the country. By 2005, he had won the prestigious "School Head Teacher of the Year Award" at the British National Teaching Awards for his work in leading a school on the brink of closure to becoming one of the most innovative in the world. He developed his organizational philosophy of living, learning, and laughing which reached his full development during his time as Head Teacher.

By 2003, Richard Gerver was working with Tony Blair's Government as an advisor on education policy. In 2006, his work was celebrated at The UNESCO World Arts Education Conference in Lisbon, Portugal and in the same year, he was invited to Shanghai to speak about education transformation to members of the Chinese Government.

Mr. Gerver's work and philosophy has been widely reported in the media around the world from the US to Russia, Australia to The Netherlands. He still plays a part in education, and has recently co-founded The International Curriculum Foundation, which will help schools and authorities around the world to develop education systems that reflect the challenges facing our children in their future. He works around the world sharing his experiences and expertise and has recently advised The Blue Man Group as they develop their own school in New York.

Richard Gerver works closely with Sir Ken Robinson on developing the awareness of human potential and creativity. He also works as an author and media commentator and is a regular contributor in the British print media, writing for The Times and The Daily Telegraph, as well as on the BBC--most recently on Breakfast Television and The Politics Show.

Mr. Gerver's first book Creating Tomorrow's Schools Today (Dec. 2009) deals with education transformation, his second, due by the end of 2011, deals with human capacity and the nurturing of talent.

The combination of Richard Gerver's experience and his open, passionate delivery means that his presentations are in demand throughout the world. He shares his expertise and experience on cultural and organizational transformation, human development, leadership, creativity, and innovation. He has worked with some of the world's largest organizations including HBOS, SKANSKA, The British Council and RBS. Most recently, he has been working with a large number of businesses to help them understand the visioning needed to overcome the fear and emotional uncertainty caused by the current economic crisis. His passion and expertise inspire audiences to new challenges and his presentations are always well received.
