I would so, so love to get Sir Ken Robinson to write an endorsement for my new book 'From What Is to What If'. Ticks all his boxes. I don't suppose there is anyone out there who knows him well who might be able to have a word with him? Thanks.

Hi, Rob. I’m here. Delighted to hear about what you’re doing and how you’re doing it with @transitiontowns I have your email and will reply. Best Ken

@SirKenRobinson I saw you at a luncheon at the ASCD conference in Chicago last month, & you showed a short video on what the world is like with the new creative ideas in the world today - ie. Self driving car. Can you share a link to this video? It was awesome to see and hear you

Thank you, Trevor. Delighted you enjoyed the session at @ASCD. The video is called The Future of Work. It was produced by my good friend @dintersmith. You’ll find it on his website: http://www.teddintersmith.com
