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’ve produced books, guides, podcasts and other publications on a wide range of topics including politics, philosophy, the art of living, media literacy and what makes people tick. 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 podcast ‘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 also love providing consultancy 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 progressive organisations (from Oxfam to the Green Party) gain social change, as well as in building successful 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 am also pleased to be a member of the board of Compass – the progressive think tank seeking a good society.
