The Keynotes
Jez Rose
Broadcaster, bee farmer, speaker, award-winning author – tea drinker
In 2016, after more than a decade working with businesses worldwide as a behaviour insight advisor shaping culture, leadership and legacy, Jez Rose moved from his suburban 3-bed semi to a dilapidated 1850’s farmhouse with agricultural land to test his theories on the cognitive and emotional impact of nature on human psychology and become a bee farmer. Jez has spent his life learning about – and fascinated by – the impact nature has on human health, wellbeing and behaviour and is passionate about how small changes to how we think and behave can produce extraordinary results. Jez’s reputation as a speaker and broadcaster is built on his ability to explore complicated topics in an accessible way with tremendous honesty, clarity, warmth and humour.
