Bringing Wisdom into Business



Weekly free online sessions for leaders of the future

Become the leader the world needs now

We believe the way forward for humanity is more unity and fewer silos. The world of business has become all about business - and is rarely based on wisdom from broader sources. 


Launched on the 50th anniversary of International Earth Day, Heartful Academy brings you weekly, free, online sessions. Join for inspiring, useful and breathtaking insights from:

Nature, Psychology, Philosophy, Spirituality and Science.  

Because business can become heartful rather than hurtful.

But for this to happen we need a new generation of business leaders who embody wisdom, not just cleverness.

Each Heartful Academy session is designed to support you on your journey to become a truly wise leader. 

Our focus is not biomimicry, existentialism or quantum physics, as such. But rather how key insights from such domains can make all of us better leaders.

"Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel"



Rich insights from five domains of knowledge often overlooked by traditional business training


Wisdom from Mother Nature herself


Progressive insights from the field of psychology


Wisdom from our most life affirming philosophies


Universal and unifying spiritual understanding


Leading edge scientific discoveries

About us

After 20+ years in the world of business, we realised that something is missing. A piece of the puzzle that has been lost, and is necessary in order to see the full picture.     


Historically, successful business leaders would have philosophers, artists and scientists live in their homes. There would be lively discussions over dinner, and knowledge sharing in real time. 


Today, as founders, investors and executives, most of us restrict our knowledge seeking to our own profession, some mainstream media, and an occasional visit to a museum or theatre. 


Few of us feel we have time for the humanities, wisdom traditions, and deeper reflections on the big topics of life. As an unintended consequence we have ended up with a business landscape that in most cases is competitive rather than collaborative, selfish rather than altruistic, life destroying rather than life generating, and hurtful rather than heartful. 

We have set out on an exciting, mind stretching and meaningful learning journey, and invite you to join us.


"The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions"
