Ross take a stand for what’s possible in the workplace. He designs and delivers evidence-based skills training to support adults in realising these possibilities for themselves. With a particular focus on psychological well-being, adaptability and recovery from work his approach is founded in contextual behavioural science.

Together, they design, deliver and research ACT Workplace Training for both the public and private sector. Ross also lectures in the application of ACT in the workplace and in coaching at City, University of London and Birkbeck, University of London.

As part of his mission to make behavioural science more accessible, useful and fun he established his start-up, People Soup, over seven years ago. People Soup is also the name of his award-winning podcast, which has a strong global following and is available wherever you get your podcasts. His free Summer Series podcasts are available here.

Prior to his portfolio career, Ross held Senior HR roles in a variety of central government departments in the UK. He holds a BSc (Hons) in psychology from the University of Dundee and Master’s degrees in Human Resource Management and Organisational Psychology. He’s a Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
