Julian’s vision for communication

“We teach our children how to read and write, but not how to speak and listen. Listening is untaught and usually unpractised. Our amazing human voice is marginalised as we communicate more and more through text, not spoken word.

My vision is to transform the world by inspiring people to listen consciously and speak powerfully.

Listening is the doorway to understanding. It is crucial for the survival of democracy and civil society, which rely on enlightened disagreement. Powerful speaking liberates us to make a difference and be known for who we are.

My vision in a nutshell: a world that listens consciously and can express itself beautifully.”
