My research and life's experience shows the transformational impact of Ethical Leadership. Most will agree that the world is in desperate need for wise ethical leaders at all levels in society. I am currently responding to companies, schools, universities and other organisations that want to embed the transformational properties of ethical leadership in their culture.

United Nations - Geneva

Last May, I was deeply honoured to be invited to speak at the United Nations. 

The event was organised by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and the Arrowad Group.The Agenda was to consider Values-based Leadership in a Multi-crises World. I gave a keynote on Values-based Education (VbE) - the key to Values-based Leadership.  My hope is that this important event will pave the way for leadership at all levels, to realise that we can only solve the world's challenges if their focus is on ethical leadership, which currently is generally sadly missing


Last July, I was invited to India to speak about Values-based Education (VbE), which is the foundation for ethical leadership. You can read a heartfelt account of my trip here.

My TEDx talk 
See why I'm passionate about ethical leadership... 

The evidence for my claims about how we can enrich our lives and help our planet to flourish, are not in the words I say or write on this website, but in the amazing transformational experience of thousands of adults and children worldwide.  


What is happening is often called a quiet revolution - a movement of people from all backgrounds who believe and model values such as justice, equity, compassion, dignity, 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. See the research here:

I then had evidence that VbE worked!

I was inspired to write a best selling book that explained the practical ways of creating a values-based school culture. I drew on the successful experience of schools worldwide.​ It was written from my heart to hearts such as yours.

Impact 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.
