Business Talks

With the cost of lost productivity in British firms £77 billion each year, Dr David Hamilton, former scientist and now acclaimed Author of 10 books including the Amazon Top 5 bestseller, ‘The Five Side Effects of Kindness’, explains why kindness is key to reducing absence due to depression & sickness, and fostering true inclusion in the workplace. In an impactful 45-60 minute talk, Dr Hamilton explains the five side effects of science and its revelatory impact on our health – both culturally and physiologically, and why the antidote to a happy workforce is easier to achieve than you think.

David has been featured on Channel 4’s, ‘Sunday Brunch Live’ in the UK as well as CBS Sunday Morning in the USA, discussing the astonishing impact of kindness and compassion on health. He has done a TEDx talk on kindness and is the Kindness Tsar for Psychologies Magazine, the UK’s leading mindful living magazine.

David has delivered keynotes and training for several companies, including

I came across Dr Hamilton’s work at a Leadership Development event and was struck by his powerful and uplifting articulation of the power of the mind on the body and how positive thinking can create positive outcomes. I was developing a leadership programme for police officers and staff at the time, as well as women’s development and senior leadership coaching and on the talent development programme, and knew that David’s input would be hugely positive and motivational for our people. Feedback from his sessions has been hugely positive. His sessions are always energetic, authentic, motivational and insightful. David is always uppermost in my mind as a potential contributor to any leadership / development programmes.” Gillian MacDonald, Assistant Chief Constable, Police Scotland.

David Hamilton blends hard science with theory to give a fresh new approach to self-improvement and change. His scientific background adds credibility, which makes people all the more likely to listen to what he has to say.” David J Clarkson, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, former Head of Private Business – Scotland

“David Hamilton displays natural communication skills and adaptability in successfully engaging with business audiences. Through his personal charisma, easy delivery and by taking the ‘scientific approach’, David enables delegates to readily take on board critical learnings about both individual and organisational wellbeing. David very much conveys what ‘walking the talk’ is all about and in so doing inspires businesspeople to make a real difference in their personal and corporate lives.”  Drew Pryde, Chairman of the Scottish Institute of Business Leaders
