  Music and Leadership: Leading Creative Collaborations

In this programme Paul Robertson explores some of the complex psychodynamics that underpin the creative process. The grace and charisma that characterise the public image of succesful musical ensembles belie the numerous tensions and jealousies at play within the personal and professional lives of the members.

About Paul Robertson;

Paul was for 38 years a founder and leader of the internationally acclaimed Medici Quartet. He draws on this top level performance experience, together with his profound knowledge of Music and the Brain, to create unique insights into our innate 'hardwired' systems of Integrated Intelligence.

In his engaging and absorbing presentations, Paul brings together analytic 'cognitive' systems thinking with more intuitive, or even 'instinctive' experience, to illumine the complex contemporary issues around Leadership, Organisational Intelligence and Creativity.

As well as a busy international career of public speaking, corporate presentations and consultations, he frequently writes and broadcasts. His original and passionate delivery (which always includes an element of musical performance and illustration) has taken him into many different arenas.

He is currently Visiting Professor in Music and Medicine to the Peninsula Medical School and an Associate Fellow at Green, Templeton College, Oxford.

There was a great deal in the dynamic of the group that I was deeply unhappy about by then...In many ways it was the deepest crisis of my life, though it will seem like nothing to you I'm sure. I felt as if the whole truth of my life was at stake- what I spent my whole lifetime doing was at stake......'
