Rick Wartzman, director of the Drucker Institute, will interview renowned creativity and innovation expert Sir Ken Robinson about his new book, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, on Jan. 29 as part of a special ALOUD Business Forum at the Los Angeles Central Library.

The onstage conversation will explore what Sir Ken identifies as the point at which “natural talent meets personal passion.” Drawing on the stories of a wide range of people—from musician Paul McCartney to physicist Richard Feynman—Sir Ken offers up lessons on the diversity of intelligence and the power of imagination and creativity that can be applied to transforming business and education in the 21st century.
