He consults and advises corporations, governments and education leaders on preparing for future shifts in work, leisure and the digitally connected world. He is passionate about helping people fulfill their true potential, most notably by tackling the global epidemic of disengagement – in the workplace, and in formal education.

As a former professional musician, and a native of Jarrow in the North-East of England, David is used to travelling to find work, spending two-thirds of the year on the road. When he isn’t moving, he’s to be found in Leeds, in the UK.

David Price: The Power of Us

Show Highlights

  • “Playing without the music” can transform learning opportunities and unleash the gifts of your students
  • Communities are outperforming bureaucracies:Foster innovation because innovation comes from the users and 
  • Don’t inadvertently snuff out the inherent creativity because of poor leadership. Be brave enough to create a culture about autonomy and agency
  • Rethink learning so it develops a pedagogy of agency 
  • Automatic competition impedes open collaboration and innovation in a community

“I think with COVID, it’s really heightened the need, now that people have to be creative, to make things, whether that’s sourdough bread or craft beer, there is something in us, which is now coming to the fore. The really interesting part of it now, partly through necessity because sadly, a lot of people in the UK are losing their jobs and they’re thinking, well, what should I do? … we need to prepare our young people as much to be kind of entrepreneurs.”

“One is how do we create an internal culture for educators so that they feel that they can be creative.Part two is how do we create the right kind of culture and environment for our students so that they feel that it isn’t about getting the right answer, but it’s about being, being creative and making and producing things.”
