making ingenuity happen
David Price helps organisations and people to make sustainable change happen. His first book, OPEN:How We’ll Work, Live & Learn In The Future was an Amazon best seller. His most recent book The Power Of Us: How We Connect, Act, And Innovate Together was published in 2020, and is an unashamed celebration of ingenuity around the world. The product of three years research, interviewing organisations and leaders ranging from Fortune 500 companies to innovative NGOs and education innovators, Price was able to put together a unique how-to guide for organisational leaders. His conclusion? That our ability to collaboratively ‘figure things out’ doesn’t rely on an individual's creativity or flair, but on how to create a culture that makes ingenuity a daily, lived experience. The eight key elements of that culture are at the heart of the book and Price’s talks and webinars.
He is a highly sought-after speaker, trainer and masterclass leader.

The unprecedented challenges we’re all facing as a result of the Covid pandemic demands collaborative ingenuity on a scale and at a speed never seen before. When this crisis has passed, the organisations that survive will be the ones who have learned how to harness the power of us. The key that unlocks innovation and the power of us is, of course, our ability to learn and adapt. David has been at the forefront of innovation in organisational learning for over 30 years. In 2009, he was made a member of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Her Majesty The Queen.
