Hi and thanks for visiting my website.
I'm known worldwide as 'Dr Values' because of my passion for helping people of all ages see the 'magic' of values in transforming lives and enabling our planet to flourish.
The evidence for my claims are not in the words I write on this website, but in the experience of thousands of adults and children worldwide.
What is happening is often called as a quiet revolution - a movement of people who believe and model values such as justice, equity, compassion, trust and integrity

The key is that transformation begins with children.
For seven years, whilst the Headteacher of an urban community school in Oxfordshire, UK, I researched for my doctorate at Oxford University, the impact of underpinning the school community with enhancing human values such as respect, honesty, justice and trust. Staff modelled the values and the community supported them.
This was profound. It significantly improved the quality of education, giving both pupils and staff a powerful ethical compass to navigate their lives. It helped the children to develop the quality of Self-Leadership, which is the main outcome of being in a community that fosters ethical intelligence. This is the transformational life-changing ability to ethically self-regulate your thinking and behaviour.
As a consequence of this success, I wanted others to discover the secrets that I had uncovered so I founded a charity called the International Values-based Education Trust, known as the IVET Foundation. Its educational dimension is Values-based Education (VbE), a movement for educational, corporate and social transformation, which is positively affecting millions of children worldwide.
