We are delighted to announce that Daniel Goleman is attending the conference on 24 October.
Dr Daniel Goleman is a psychologist and author, world-renowned for the ground-breaking book Emotional Intelligence that has sold over 5 million copies in forty languages.
TIME Magazine named the book one of the 25 “Most Influential Business Management Books”. The Harvard Business Review called emotional intelligence— which discounts IQ as the sole measure of one’s abilities — “a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea”.
Daniel Goleman's new book, Focus – The Hidden Driver of Excellence is to be released on 8 October and promises to be equally influential.

What helps us stay aligned with our human values? Are you a full-time "giver" on the verge of exhaustion? Can organisations make compassion their core value?
Cultivating Compassionate Presence
- Published on 01 October 2013
Offering skills training for healthcare professionals in compassion, mindfulness and meditation is an important part of the work of the Spiritual Care Programme. Here, Kirsten DeLeo describes her experience of offering inservice training to doctors and other staff at a major children’s hospital in the United States. Rosamund Oliver and Margaret Tatham from the Programme will offer a two-day training on Compassion and Presence in Health and Social Care on 26-27th October.
Spiritual Care Programme
Dr. Angela Anderson, a paediatrician at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, is sitting with a group of her colleagues. She shares her experiences of caring for terminally ill children and responding to grieving parents. “No words of comfort can reach the parents or take away their pain when they lose their baby. I kept asking myself, What can I offer when nothing else can be done? I was trained to do, to fix... I felt helpless and inadequate.” As I listen to Dr. Anderson and her colleagues discussing the challenges that they face, my heart goes out to them. From my own experience in hospice care, I can relate to their feelings of helplessness and inadequacy—anybody who works as a carer can.
