Brian is an experienced retreat leader, author, speaker and creative consultant. He regularly contributes to BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’ and has pioneered the introduction of ‘soulful leadership’ within organisations. Most recently, he’s co-written Soulful Nature: A spiritual field guide (with the botanist Howard Green). It’s about finding a deeper connection with nature and unearthing our own soulful nature in the process.
Simon is CEO of The Mind Clinic, which takes counselling into organisations. He was a priest in the Church of England for 20 years, serving in three London parishes.
