“I believe that empathy – the imaginative act of
stepping into another person’s shoes and
viewing the world from their perspective –
is a radical tool for social change and
should be a guiding light for
the art of living.”

He is a founding faculty member of The School of Life in London, which offers instruction and inspiration on the important questions of everyday life, and advises organisations including Oxfam and the United Nations on using empathy and conversation to create social change.
