For Kynan Robinson, every day is a performance. Not only is he an eight-album trombonist and record- label owner, but from his ten years as a classroom teacher, and a further decade developing multi-million dollar businesses, he brings a unique perspective to NoTosh clients. He has driven some of Australia’s fastest growing education technology firms. He is masterful at valuing the individual voice within the collective, and pushing teams to put their most important user at the centre of their thinking.
“From my roots in music, to teaching in school classrooms, nothing gives me more pleasure than creating the space for people to thrive and grow. “So many businesses are hierarchical, when they don’t have to be. But I make a point of working with individuals to take more responsibility for the team’s work. It all starts with learning how to share things in Plain English, how to trust each other, how to take risks without individuals feeling that they’re jeopardising their own career. “Whether you’re in a sales team or a board room, the impact of switching to this way of thinking is life-changing, business- changing. You help people on the ground become leaders, not just delivering on their job but developing fresh ideas that become the lifeblood of the organisation. It doesn’t matter if you’re a school or a multi-million dollar business – the principle is same.”
