Robert Poynton

Robert Poynton is a designer and facilitator of learning experiences. He is particularly interested in complexity and has developed an innovative approach, based on improvisational theatre, to give people a direct, personal experience of the key ideas in this field.

He is is an Associate Fellow at the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford where he has Directed the Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme. In 2017 he was a contributor to the Skoll World Forum and Singularity University Global Summit. He has also led courses on leadership, change and complexity at IE in Madrid, Ashridge Business School and Schumacher College. His own clients include Chanel, Natura Bissé, BBC and PwC. He also leads creative retreats in Spain, where he lives – such as the ‘Praxis Reading Retreats’ or the ‘Creative Tapas Experience’.

Robert studied Psychology and Philosophy at New College, Oxford and worked in advertising in London, Madrid and Buenos Aires. He has authored two books on improvisation: ‘Everything’s an Offer’ and ‘Do Improvise’. He is currently working on a new book about playing with time, entitled ‘Do – Pause’. He is married with three sons and lives in an off grid house in Sierra de Gredos in Central Spain just outside a small town that no-one has heard of.
