Jez Rose is a broadcaster, honeybee farmer, award-winning writer and keynote speaker, known for his energy, humour and passion.
Growing up in the countryside, Jez Rose discovered his passion for nature and the environment early in life.
In 2017, he moved to a small decommissioned farm on the Cambridgeshire/Lincolnshire border, turning it into a multi-award-winning, organic farm – and the world’s first certified Carbon Neutral honey farm, home to the native British honeybee.
It might be the moustache that you recognise but Jez is a regular on television and radio, including his own show for ITV1; guest presenting on QVC and when not in the studio with ITV’s James Martin’s Saturday Morning, can be seen traveling the country with BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen. He has been the public ambassador for national campaigns for the likes of LateRooms.com; Honest Organic and The Happy Egg Company.
Jez spent ten years working with businesses worldwide as a Behaviour Insight Advisor, carving a formidable reputation delivering keynote presentations and workshops at conferences for some of the world’s most recognisable brands. He has been invited to speak at the world-renowned TEDx conferences in both the UK and USA, which can be viewed online.
An award-winning writer, his books include Flip the Switch and two books written for children: Zooster McFlooster & the Very Big Sneeze and The Sock Thief. His articles and features have appeared in titles as diverse as The Daily Telegraph, CNN, Liz Earle Wellbeing and BBC Countryfile magazines.
A unique presenter and keynote speaker with the rare ability to genuinely inspire audiences, he’s been invited to speak in more than 14 countries and at TEDx events in both the UK and USA.
His message is a simple yet powerful one: ever since humans stepped foot onto soil, nature had important lessons for us, but for centuries we’ve ignored them. It’s resulted in disengaged leaders and workforces; cultures without passion – and an environment ignored. The overwhelmingly positive, scientifically evidenced impact of nature on human health, wellbeing and behaviour will surprise you; how simply it changes human behaviour will astonish.
In this highly engaging, fascinating and lively presentation, Jez offers a blueprint for human achievement. He provides insight into his research and experience working in culture, leadership and emotional welfare and through understanding why we do what we do, and how simple it is to improve the way we think, behave and ultimately achieve, Jez shares many powerful messages that all organisations can learn from the natural world: from efficient models of leadership and collaboration in honeybees, to adaptive working for the greater good of the whole, as seen in Canada Geese, Elephant herds and honeybee colonies.
At its heart, the message of his presentation is a simple, but none-the-less powerful one: ever since humans stepped foot onto soil, nature had important lessons for us, yet for centuries we’ve ignored them. The result is an increase in crisis seen in personal lives and within organisations: disconnected leaders; cultures without passion; disengaged workforces; a surge in anxiety and depression and an environment ignored.
Our actions and decisions form a legacy. The way we deal with people and indeed our outlook on current circumstances all affect the legacy we leave. The much-overlooked concept of legacy is the subject of Jez’s latest book as he explores alternative ways to think differently about how we behave and the potential we have to both create great things now whilst leaving legacies of value both at home and at work. Jez presents how considering legacy can be used critically as a transformational method for changing cultures in this energetic, passionate and exciting keynote presentation. The results are much more meaningful, engaged and impactful behaviour, truly aiming to be the very best we can be.
An articulate and experienced presenter, Jez is the first choice for industry conferences and high-profile awards ceremonies around the world.
