John Doran: beyond the grade
Play episode · 24 min

Each week, The Why Word gets under the skin of entrepreneurs, business leaders, creatives and people who make things happen to find out what makes them tick. Presented by Ian Hawkins.

John Doran believes that educating children is more about giving them resilience and emotional intelligence than coaching them to pass tests. His TEDx talk - on Positive Education for the 21st Century - is a rallying cry for more to be done to support what he calls ‘the second most important job in the world after being a parent’ and his Ways for Wellbeing program is currently being used in over 140 schools. 

We also find out that John would like to meet for lunch with an entrepreneur famous for being a less-than-brilliant student.
