Theodore Zeldin

Author, historian, philosopher of Oxford University; Theodore Zeldin, has engaged in a lifetime of research and consultation in search of what a full and flourishing life could be.
 He has found that ‘the greatest problem and the greatest opportunity of the twenty-first century are to be found in our relationships with others.’
‘Our society is full of untapped potential for richer, more creative human interactions. It is only by truly relating to others that we can break out of our stultifying patterns of thought and behaviour, and glimpse the fullness of what it is possible to experience as a human being.’
Theodore works with governments, leading organisations and private businesses internationally, offering his insights and practical applications on how to best shape the future of their work.
Among his awards and honours he is a
Commander of the Légion d’Honneur, a Fellow of the British Academy and of the Royal Society of Literature, he holds a C.B.E., and has won the Wolfson Prize, Britain's top literary award for History.
