Whilst writing his Ph.D. (D.Phil.) on the philosophy of empathy at the University of Oxford, Will trained in an approach to conflict mediation called Nonviolent Communication. After completing his Ph.D., he spent two years helping to manage a think-tank researching how philanthropists can do good most effectively. Besides his research work, Will has spent a total of four months walking on the Camino De Santiago Pilgrimage Trail in Spain. He has also directed an improvised comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and enjoys writing Shakespearean Sonnets. Will now works as a mindfulness facilitator and coach, helping people to explore philosophy through their moment to moment life experience.
