Behavioural Speaker & Bee-Keeper!
Jez Rose is a behavioural expert, best selling author, and speaker on communication and culture challenges
Jez Rose has spent his life learning about – and fascinated by – the impact nature has on human health, wellbeing and behaviour. He is passionate about positively influencing the legacy we all live and leave.
In 2016, after more than a decade working with businesses worldwide as a behaviour insight advisor shaping culture, leadership and legacy, Jez Rose moved from his suburban 3-bed semi to a dilapidated 1850’s farmhouse with agricultural land to test his theories on the cognitive and emotional impact of nature on human psychology and become a bee farmer.
He is founder of the research program, The Good Life Project, supported by ambassadors the Soil Association; broadcaster Kate Humble and Gardener’s World’s Adam Frost. The Good Life Project develops practical, evidence-based guidance for organisations on the impact of nature on human health, well-being and behaviour. Jez believes that nature is not being taken seriously enough by organisations seeking to enhance their culture, improve wellness and achieve extraordinary results.
Jez’s reputation as a speaker and broadcaster is built on his ability to explore complicated topics in an accessible way with tremendous honesty, clarity, warmth and humour. For over a decade he has been invited to speak at conferences and events in more than 14 countries; his uniquely entertaining, inspiring and informative style making him a firm favourite for organisations requiring a keynote speaker with lasting impact.
A childhood in the English countryside; a Grandmother with a passion for unconventional gardening methods and a background in healthcare each made an impression on Jez that fuelled his desire to explore how human behaviour and wellbeing benefit from a greater connection with the natural world. Some of his fondest early memories are gardening with his Grandmother, being rewarded with bread and honey and today when designing and creating the gardens on his farm, he always remembers the benefits of tea and honey!
Jez Rose presents real-world, efficacious strategies and solutions for thinking differently in order to positively influence cultures and behaviours to be conscious of the legacy we leave every day.
His unique content focuses on the much over-looked concept of legacy: considering the consequences of our actions and the decisions and choices we make. Whilst encouraging people to view legacy as current and to live your legacy, as opposed to something we leave behind; as a way to think differently about how we behave and the potential we have to create great things, at home and at work and critically as a transformational method for changing cultures.
His most popular presentations look at –
• Communication and culture challenges
• Supercharging culture, corporate social responsibility and workplace wellbeing
• What we can do to leave personal and business legacies of value
• Inspiring leadership teams with real-world strategies
Based on more than a decade working with some of the world’s most iconic brands, using analogies, research and his own experience of the impact of nature to help bring his topics alive, his keynote presentations last from 60 minutes with every audience commenting on just how quickly the time went. His workshops and innovative training sessions last from 90 minutes to full days.
Jez creates energy and engagement wherever he goes. His infectious enthusiasm, talent and humour make him a pleasure to work with. He has a real passion for delivery and it makes for a presentation that is off the scale and nothing like you have ever experienced before.
