Yes, that is SIR Ken Robinson in the photo above… which was taken at the TEDx Fulbright conference at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, CA in September, 2015… and where Sir Ken and Trules both presented original TEDx Talks. And yes, Sir Ken has given the most popular TED Talk of all time, called “Do Schools Kill Creativity?”

Coincidentally (or not, depending on whether you believe in coincidence, fate, or magic), Sir Ken’s son, James Robinson, took 3 of Trules’ classes at USC (University of Southern California), and Trules personally wants you to know: James is a chip off his father’s old block!

But Trules has been speaking…. for decades. In classrooms. On stage. In educational conferences. He has been giving motivational, informational, historical, and hopefully, inspirational Talks. Here in America. And internationally in such places as Malaysia, Switzerland, Indonesia, Scotland… and more.

His popular TEDx Talk from 2015, “Jumping on the Train of Opportunity” has been adopted and modified for college stages and classrooms, for corporate and business trainings, and Trules follows the TEDx Talk with a lively Question and Answer session.
