Dr Neil Thompson

This site has been developed by Neil Thompson as part of his commitment to making a positive difference to people’s lives, whether in terms of learning and development, health and wellbeing or running a business.

Neil’s background in social work helped him to appreciate that the problems he encountered in social work and the strategies for addressing them were just as applicable in the world of work as in families and communities. This led him to develop a deep interest in workplace health and wellbeing and, in particular, the key role of effective leadership.

Neil is a well-published author, sought-after international conference speaker and developer of high-quality online learning resources. His Academy, with free learning resources, including his acclaimed Manifesto for Making a Difference can be found here. He is also a visiting professor at the Open University and the Vice-president of Vigoroom UK, a sophisticated employee wellness platform geared towards improving the quality of working life.
