Monday's Keynote speaker at PETE&C was Sir Ken Robinson. Sir Robinson is an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources. He spoke about his new book, The Element. According to Robinson, the element is "the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. When people arrive at the element, they feel most themselves and most inspired and achieve at their highest levels." He argues that being good at something or having talent is not enough. To truly be creative and at our best we must also love what we do.
Robinson makes an excellent case for following our own star.
