Four of these are by Sir Ken Robinson who is my favourite speaker of all time. If you’ve never had the pleasure, he’s funny, inspiring and a wonderful story teller – I taught him well! 😆

1. Jim Carey – MUM Graduation

The first one I’ve included is the most recent and will blow you away. It’s by Jim Carey which he did earlier this year at the MUM university and his message is as poignant as I’ve ever seen.

2. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates

I found this discussion with Steve Jobs and Bill Gates which really has changed the way I think about business and entrepreneurs. It’s just fascinating watching these two giants of the business world talk openly.

3. Sir Ken Robinson – Schools are killing creativity

Sir Ken Robinson is phenomenal at spreading his message and does it in a refreshing and uplifting way. A much loved and respected teacher. I’ve watched his talks several times and I always walk away with new insights.

A wonderful gem from Sir Ken Robinson, this time sharing his thoughts and passion and finding that which you love to do.

Education is much broader than we think it is. It doesn’t just happen in the classroom.

11. Anita Moorjani – Dying To Be Me

12. Sir Ken Robinson – Bring on the learning revolution

And following up from his talk from earlier – bringing on the learning revolution!

13. Dr John DeMartini – Secrets to self Mastery

Another of my favourite speakers, Dr John DeMartini speaking with unmatched clarity and power. I’ve been to see and met him on several occasions. His level of knowledge is truly unmatched.

    Whilst these are definitely inspiring I cannot understand why you have not included Neil Gaimans commencement speech at University of the Arts Class of 2012 which must rate as one of the most intelligent, witty, moving and inspirational speeches of all time. Just listen to it and tell me I am wrong!

    • Amit Sodha says:

      Hey Mark,

      I’ve not heard of that speech before but I will definitely watch it. I’ve heard of him before and I’m sure my company organised some tours for him recently.

      I’ll watch it shortly and get back to you once I have – I always welcome discovering new inspiring talks/lectures.

      With thanks,

      Hey Mark,

      I just want to say thank you for introducing me to that video – I truly enjoyed it. Being a high school drop-out, I could totally relate to everything he said.
      I especially love everything he said about making mistakes, breaking rules, and make good art.

      Honestly from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

      For anyone else – here’s the link to the video.
