On this episode of the World Game-Changers podcast, Paul is joined by Richard Gerver to talk about their relationships with school & education, and how that’s changed over the years.
‘As a child, I was immensely creative. I was a writer, an actor, and artist; I went to an all-boys school that was highly academic, highly sports focused – particularly rugby’.
‘There’s no such thing as a bad experience if you process it in the right way, and learn from it'.
‘Beliefs can only ever be shaped by your lived experience'.
‘We talk a lot about the wisdom of elders; every time an old person dies a library burns down'.
