Sunday Zephyr – Passion

by Darren on August 28, 2016

Passion – don’t like the word. But, I do like listening to Ken Robinson talk. I have posted a number of his videos of the years and here is another one. This is a long one – 50 minutes. Sit down and relax on this awesome Sunday and learn a few things about passion and other stuff. If nothing else observe how a really great presenter can make presenting look so easy.
