David Price, OBE, is a global thought leader, learning futurist and author, specialising in how organisations learn, innovate and make themselves fit for the future.

He is a highly sought-after public speaker, entertaining and educating audiences around the world, in business, education and the public sector. His most recent book, OPEN: How We'll Work, Live And Learn In The Future has been an Amazon best-seller since its publication and has recently been translated into Russian. (Go figure...)

David is also a highly experienced trainer, having spent 20 years running workshops and masterclasses in people development, organisational learning, innovation strategies, as well as a host of training events for schools, colleges and universities.

In 2009, he was awarded the OBE for services to education, by Her Majesty The Queen.
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.
