11 Daniel Pink:‘A Whole New Mind’ “Our sons and daughters will not hew, forge, mine, plough or weld. They will serve, design, advise, create, compose, analyse, judge and write. Their skills will be applied to all industries and services, not just the high-tech. Agriculture, the oldest industry of all, is becoming increasingly dependent on bioscience, information technology and branding”. Charles Leadbeater “Britain’s creativity challenge”
