Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of ‘crack-pot’ than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.
— Thomas J. Watson

A catalyst for new ideas that help leaders and their organisations innovate collaboratively and take transformational action to solve complex challenges.

Graham Brown-Martin is an engaging, witty and most importantly prescient speaker who has an uncanny ability to weave observations about the past and present into inspiring and thoughtful insights we all must consider as we collectively shape the future.”  - Connie Yowell, MacArthur Foundation

From intimate gatherings of leadership teams to global summits, Brown-Martin excels at stimulating new thinking and new ideas. Whether speaking on innovation, education or society he is an entertaining and thought provoking slayer of sacred cows. 

A serial disruptor, Brown-Martin draws on his experiences of creating startups and organisations that challenged the status quo across the digital, creative and education sectors. He designed mobile computers in the 1980s, interactive digital music systems in the 1990s and cloud-based storage systems in the early 2000s. He takes his audience on a journey that challenges them to think differently about the future. 

“Graham Brown-Martin’s keynote was a fantastic catalyst for our thinking”  - Kieran Earley, CEO and Principal at The British School in The Netherlands

Brown-Martin was the founder of Learning Without Frontiers (LWF), a global movement that brought together renowned educators, technologists and creatives to share provocative and challenging ideas about the future of learning. He left LWF in 2013 to pursue new programmes and ideas designed to transform the way we learn, communicate and live. His book, Learning {Re}imagined, was published by Bloomsbury in 2015.
