Nick Baylis: speaker, psychotherapist, columnist and presenter.
Well-being scientist at Cambridge University, Nick is co-director of the Well-being Institute, where he endeavours to understand how each of us can make profound progress in our everyday lives: psychologically, physically and socially.
TV and radio presenter, Nick was the on-screen expert for a ten-part BBC television series about ‘dream careers’, hosted by Adrian Chiles. Each episode had contributions from world-famous personalities representing the full range of careers.
Public speaker Nick has a vocation to prove that ‘the skills of well-being’ can pay their way in the workplace, as well as in our personal lives. He has given numerous workshops and lectures on ‘Applying the Skills of Well-being’ to organisations ranging from The Royal College of General Practitioners to Oxford University Business School. Nick’s findings contribute to the research and development of products and services that helpfully anticipate the emerging requirements of 21st century life.
In 2003 Nick was invited to co-convene the first ever Royal Society of London three day conference on ‘The Science of Well-being’, and became co-editor of the multi-disciplinary collection of academic chapters by world-leading voices that comprise The Science of Well-being (Huppert, Baylis and Keverne, Oxford University Press, 2005).
Nick is a practising psychotherapist and as ‘Dr FeelGood’ for The Times, he wrote over 100 weekly columns, many of which have now been syndicated by The Australian newspaper. From 2005, Nick wrote a year’s worth of monthly columns about the healing and inspirational potential of feature films, for Psychologies Magazine.
Nick’s first book written for a general readership is Learning from Wonderful Lives: Lessons from the Study of Well-being.
Nick also chairs conferences and seminars and is a highly skilled conference facilitator and after dinner speaker. He has a wealth of experience hosting events and award ceremonies, both at home and abroad.
