Jez Rose is The Behaviour Expert; an internationally renowned behaviourist, speaker, broadcaster and award-winning author.
He is known as the go-to guy for memorable keynote presentations on understanding and improving human behaviour and how nature can have a positive impact on the workplace for a list of clients that reads like a "who's who" of leading global brands, including: Old Mutual Wealth, SAP, Marriott, Scansource, Philips, Wella and Audi.
Considered a leading expert in his field, he is passionate about creating unique and entertaining demonstrations to help audiences remember what they hear and inspire them to achieve extraordinary things with simple changes to how they think.
He may be best known as a conference speaker presenting to hundreds of thousands of people each year, turning mundane business conferences into memorable events and for setting up The Good Life Project Farm, but Jez Rose began his career in the National Health Service. He worked as a comedy performer to help fund his studies in psychology and behaviour before a short stint as a further education teacher, where he lectured on social applications of psychology.
Today, Jez's schedule is as busy as the 80,000 bees he keeps on his farm. As well as overseeing training and research on his farm, he travels extensively, presenting to and creating training programmes for organisations worldwide; he is the Faculty Lead for The Good Life Project, an innovative research project evidencing the impact of nature on workplace environments and over the past 12 years has presented at conferences in more than 14 countries, 158 cities and to more than 100,000 people. His work as a broadcaster sees him writing for international media including CNN, Minutehack.com and The Daily Telegraph and making more than 100 appearances on television and radio, as a regular special guest for BBC and LBC radio and in his own 60-minute pilot for ITV1, as well as on popular shows for Channel 4, The Discovery Channel, QVC and BBC1's Breakfast Show.
An award-winning author of several books, including his latest, Flip The Switch, ask Jez what he believes makes organisations succeed and he'll tell you that the most important asset of any organisation is their people and the environment in which they work: "We are each capable of achieving quite extraordinary things with simple changes to how we think, however, equally simple things can prevent us from doing so. An insight into why we behave the way we do puts you ahead."
Jez is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; Faculty Lead of The Good Life Project; Faculty Member of the award-winning Unite University. He has been invited to speak at the world-renowned TEDx conferences in 2014 (UK) and 2016 (USA). The Behaviour Expert is an Institute of Leadership and Management registered centre.
