Mr Gerver began his career in education, most notably as Headmaster of the then failing Grange Primary School. He was celebrated by UNESCO and the UK government for the school’s incredible turnaround.
Mr Gerver has since transitioned to the global stage. He draws upon the first-hand experiences and insights garnered from frontline education to explore the links between great leadership, human potential, change and innovation. His work has won him global acclaim and invitations to speak on the most recognised stages, including TED, the RSA and BBC radio.
Mr Gerver has regularly advised governments and major corporations, including Google, Visa, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Deloitte, Harrods, Puig and Telefonica. He has worked with Olympic and Paralympic coaches, EPL Soccer coaches, England Golf and professional cricket teams. Recently, he has also started working with the British music industry to help develop a capacity for proactive and sustainable change.
Mr Gerver is the bestselling author of several books, including Creating Tomorrow’s Schools Today (now in its second edition), Change and Simple Thinking and Education: A Manifesto for Change.
