If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?

“Times have changed - the knowledge economy is over - which is a monumental statement given my background, I know!”


I am thrilled to bring you back a One Question Podcast fave guest today who I always have such wonderfully diverse conversations with. The ever impressive Louka Parry is the CEO + Founder of The Learning Future and works globally as a speaker, learning strategist and education futurist.

As one of Australia's top innovators he speaks on futures, leadership, and transformation, having worked with thousands of leaders and educators from diverse contexts all across the world, including in high-level policy for organisations such as the OECD, UNESCO, the European Commission.

A rapid learner, he speaks five languages, has visited over 80 countries, and holds two Masters degrees, one in Instructional Leadership from the University of Melbourne and another in Applied Linguistics. As an education leader, he was promoted to Principal at only 27 years old, and was named South Australian Inspirational Public Secondary Teacher of the Year. In 2022 he was listed as a Top 100 Innovator for Australia.

As CEO of The Learning Future and supported by colleagues, Louka is committed to transforming learning structures, systems and societies that further empower individuals to develop the key human capabilities that matter most now and into the future. He also co- leads the non-profit Karanga: The Global Alliance for Social Emotional Learning and Life Skills, which connects the global education community at the forefront of the future of education and social- emotional learning to empower children, educators and communities all across the globe. 

Yes - one seriously impressive human, right? But as you’re about to hear, Louka is not only smart, but he’s just a downright awesome human & super nice bloke. Please enjoy this wonderful conversation with Louka Parry.
