About

I’m a writer, coach and consultant helping people to stand back and examine the big picture – of life, human beings, politics, society and ideas.

I provide consultancy and coaching to organisations and movements seeking to change the world for the better, as well as coaching and workshops to individuals looking to live a more thoughtful life.

I have over 25 years’ experience of helping a wide range of progressive organisations (from Oxfam to the Green Party) gain social change, as well as in building successful commercial organisations.

I am the founder and director of social change agency ChangeStar, as well as the not-for-profit Life Squared, which helps people navigate the complexity of life so they can live in a happier, wiser and more meaningful way. As Chief Executive I built the leading charity fundraising and communications agency TW CAT (now On Agency) to a 20-fold growth in turnover.

I’m also a writer, creator and producer of books, guides, podcasts and other materials on a wide range of topics including psychology, philosophy, politics and the art of living. My books include ‘Life – and how to think about it‘, ‘The Life Trap’ and ‘Modern life – as good as it gets?’, and my articles have appeared in a range of magazines and websites – from The Ecologist to Renewal. I am the host of the podcasts ‘Humans & Hope‘, ‘Making the world better’ and ‘The Big Questions with Copson and Docwra’.

I love helping people to make sense of complex ideas, as well as applying them to make the world better. I help academics and others to do this too.

I am also pleased to be a member of the board of Compass – the progressive think tank seeking a good society.
