David Hamilton - Kindness Tsar

It was Psychologies Magazine that termed the phrase ‘Kindness Tsar’ and we have kept it!

David has a PhD in organic chemistry and spent 4 years in the pharmaceutical industry, developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their health. He is now author of 10 books, including The Little Book of Kindness, How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body, Why Kindness Is Good For You, I Heart Me and the Amazon bestseller, The Five Side Effects of Kindness. He writes a regular blog on his website and occasional blogs for the Huffington Post (US version).

He is the ‘Kindness Tsar’ for Psychologies Magazine and writes The Kindness Conversation and the Kindness Project. He appears regularly in the media and was recently featured on Channel 4’s live show, Sunday Brunch, in the UK and CBS Sunday Morning in the USA.

David is an advocate for kindness and is working passionately to help inspire a kinder world. He will work with Talent Insight Group to spread the word.
