Dr Scilla Elworthy three times Nobel Peace Prize nominee, 2003 awarded Niwano Peace Prize, Founder of Oxford Research Group and Peace Direct, Councillor of the World Future Council, adviser to Desmond Tutu and Sir Richard Branson on the founding of The Elders.
Latest book: Pioneering the Possible: Awakened Leadership for a World That Works. Her TED talk on non violence has been viewed by over 1 million people.
Scilla says: “My passion is to enable leaders to make wiser decisions. I try to do this by bridging the personal and the political, by creating safe places where policy-makers can talk more openly to their opponents, and by encouraging the kind of self-knowledge that keeps people from thoughtless violence or assisting in the destruction of the planet. It’s vital to me to keep as awake and aware as I can be and to take care of my own energy, nourished by spending time with my family, my friends and with nature.”
