Kindness Tsar Appointed

Talent Insight Group, a leading consultancy that works with organisations looking to make better informed strategic talent decisions, is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr David Hamilton as Kindness Tsar.

It was Psychologies Magazine that termed the phrase ‘Kindness Tsar’ and we have kept it!

David has a PhD in organic chemistry. Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their health. He is now author of 10 books, including, The Little Book of Kindness, How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body, I Heart Me and the Amazon bestseller, The Five Side Effects of Kindness. He writes a regular blog on his website and occasional blogs for the Huffington Post (US version).

David is the ‘Kindness Tsar’ for Psychologies Magazine and writes The Kindness Conversation and the Kindness Project. He appears regularly in the media and was recently featured on Channel 4’s live show, Sunday Brunch, in the UK and CBS Sunday Morning in the USA. He is an advocate for kindness and is working passionately to help inspire a kinder world.

Glen Hall, Talent Insight Group’s Chairman, commented: “I’ve always admired David’s work. I’ve spent twenty years trying to connect the ‘individual’ with the ‘company’. I have tried every talent management technique under the sun. David’s kindness philosophy connects the dots. If you place kindness and compassion at the heart of what you do, you’ll create a ripple effect that will benefit the ‘individual’ and the ‘company’ with equal effect. David calls it the ‘Spirit of Kindness’, a scientifically proven phenomenon that can make a real difference to your health and happiness and to those who are touched by such kindness.”

We are looking forward to working with David and spreading the spirit of kindness.
