BIO


In these transformational times, Giles Hutchins stimulates the head-space and heart-knowing for forward-leaning leaders and organisations to become vibrant, purposeful and future-fit.  The 20th century organisation-as-machine logic is giving way to the 21st century organisation-as-living-system which revolutionises how we lead and operate.

Giles is a pioneering practitioner, keynote speaker and executive coach at the fore-front of this necessary revolution.  He applies advanced consciousness raising techniques, deep-dive nature immersions, embodiment work, ancient wisdom tradition insights, and cutting edge research on leadership consciousness.

Previously Global Head of Sustainability for the multinational technology provider Atos, and Business Transformation Lead for KPMG Consulting, he is also co-founder of Biomimicry for Creative Innovation and Chairman of the Future Fit Leadership Academy. He had been interviewed by the BBC, and contributes to a variety of global networks and institutions.  He blogs at www.thenatureofbusiness.org and is author of The Nature of Business (2012), The Illusion of Separation (2014) and Future Fit (2016).

Giles applies over 20 years of business experience to his speaking, writing, advisory and catalytic skills. He provides advice, leadership development and insight on the emergence of a new logic in business.

With ease and incredible clarity, he reveals simultaneously the history and the philosophy and the implications of the dire plight Earth is now within … He does not let us hang there, however, for with equal engaged clarity, he shows us the alternative at hand … Never before, that I know of, has the choice of life, true life, or the path of degradation been put before us with such clear equanimity.’ Robert Sardello, PhD, Founder of The Center for Spiritual Psychology, and author of Love and the Soul: Creating a Future for Earth
