About The Speaker...
The Vagabond Philosopher
I have had a curious life! As Steve Carter, I have been privileged to work as a consultant with great organisations and leaders all over the world. For a psychologist my life has been unusually adventurous. I was one of the last people to go through Checkpoint Charlie. I was nearly bombed out of my accommodation in Riyadh, I have led leadership development programmes in the Sahara Desert, in the Alps and the Atlas Mountains. I have been an organisation troubleshooter when the going has got really tough and was involved in the recovery of financial institutions following the 2008 Banking Crisis. I have written four management books inc. The Road To Audacity; Renaissance Management and Mentoring in a Week. As an adventurer, I have travelled: from the top of the Atlas Mountains to the desert; dragged a toboggan over the frozen snows of Ontario, hiked through the steamy forests and mountains of Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina. Writing and performing as Steve Bonham I have recorded five albums, written three books: A Little Nostalgia for Freedom, A Beautiful Broken Dream and my latest. – How to Survive and Thrive in an Impossible World. I have appeared at book and music festivals all over the UK as well as tv and radio. My songs make appearances in I-Tunes and other charts.
About Their Talks...
A world turned upside down! How do we flourish in times of enormous uncertainty and in a world in which a rising tide of anxiety and disaster seems to be in danger of overwhelming us? How do we grab the wheel of our lives and steer into calmer waters? The world we are moving into seems to be one in which the old rules do not apply or do not work. So what are we going to do for ourselves if we are to flourish as individuals and leaders? We won’t succeed by following checklists and goal setting and the advice of armchair experts. Steve Bonham, award-winning psychologist, writer, adventurer, musician, and ‘vagabond philosopher’ weaves a spell of new research, great stories, and wry observation from a life on the road to provide a ‘liberation strategy’ towards a more fulfilling life. These are talks for all ages and all backgrounds and for people who are fascinated by a new way of thinking about themselves and others.
