John Maynard Keynes was born on this day, 5 June 1883. He went on to become one of the most influential thinkers and international statesmen of the 20th century.

Keynes was a firm believer of the power of theories in guiding how we think and relate to people.

His life was an exemplary journey of transformation as he escaped from powerful (old) ways of thinking about problems and worked out a new way of thinking which revolutionized how we think about major issues.

The journey of this real ‘Thought Leader’ illustrates what our Transformative Thinking approach stands for and underpins all the work we do here at The Keynes Centre:

To change our world we must move from thinking through the minds of others into thinking for ourselves and taking responsibility for creating our own Leadership Minds.
