Jez Rose

The Behaviour Expert

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.

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.

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. He has been invited to speak at the world-renowned TEDx conferences in both the UK and USA, which can be watched online.

Jez is an internationally renowned behaviourist, professional speaker and award winning author. He is a thought-leader, with the rare ability to both inspire audiences & leave them with real-world strategies for change.

He is known as the go-to guy for memorable presentations on understanding and improving human behaviour for a list of clients that reads like a “who’s who” of leading global brands, including: Old Mutual Wealth, Volkswagen, Marriott, Scansource, Philips, Wella and Audi.

Topics include:

  • Inspiring others by inspiring yourself
  • How to develop effective emotional intelligence
  • Developing honest teams by leading with influence
  • Leading and managing change
  • How it is possible to literally “flip the switch” on our behaviour and choices
  • Why some see problems, where others see opportunities
  • How to manage people with inherently negative outlooks (and how to prevent yourself becoming one!)
  • The difference between ordinary individuals, teams and organisations – and extraordinary ones


Jez may be best known for his work as a behaviour insight consultant, advising organisations and presenting to hundreds of thousands of people each year, turning mundane business conferences into memorable events, but

He 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 travels extensively, presenting to and creating training programmes for organisations worldwide. Over the past 12 years he has presented and delivered development programmes in more than 14 countries, 158 cities and to more than 100,000 people. He writes for international media publications including CNN, and The Daily Telegraph and has made 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 for the ground breaking research  pilot  The  Good  Life  Project;  Faculty  Member  of  the  award winning  Unite University.
