Ian Gibbs
The Learnability Man

Keynote speaker on learning, education and personal development



I’m Ian, the LEARNABILITY Man.

Being able to acquire new skills, adapt to change and learn new behaviours is more important than ever.

That's why I help professionals and students develop personal learning strategies and to set up and run their own Learning Clubs.

I graduated in astrophysics and trained as a teacher before I moved to Barcelona in 1990. Since then I set up my own company and now give talks and workshops on learning, communication and problem solving.

One of my favourite mediums is LEGO® and I’m a certified LEGO SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator. I’ve written a few books (see Books), I host a weekly podcast The Learnability Show (see Podcasts) and I’m the father of twins.

I’m involved in various other education and training projects which I’d be happy to talk to you about over a virtual coffee some time.


It was such a pleasure having Ian speak at Bloom! He was incredibly collaborative and tailored his signature lessons for our platform. Not only was he engaging and delivered a fantastic lesson that our members thoroughly enjoyed, the feedback from attendees was, “please bring Ian back!” Ian is generous and wonderful to work with, and I can’t wait to have him back again.
