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 how small changes to how we think and behave can produce extraordinary results.
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!
An award-winning author, he is a recipient of the Beverly Hills Book Award and his articles and features have appeared in titles as diverse as The Daily Telegraph, CNN, Liz Earle Wellbeing and BBC Countryfile magazines. His latest book, Flip The Switch: Achieve Extraordinary Results With Simple Changes To How You Think is published by Capstone.
