Speaker Belinda Parmar OBE is the CEO of The Empathy Business whose aim is to transform the business world with empathy. Belinda believes that today more than ever we need to be cautious of how our employees and customers feel - and how we feel with them. Belinda is also an activist for ending stereotypes and supporting women to follow a career in technology.

Belinda Parmar works with leaders to transform organisations from within using the power of empathy. We spend on average 50 years of our lives at work yet 1 in 10 people are unhappy in their jobs. Belinda changes cultures to bring more meaning and empowerment to people’s lives. She is leading an empathy revolution at work and has helped change some of the world’s biggest banks and energy companies in Europe.

Speaker Belinda Parmar is an expert in nudge theory and works with companies to make hundreds of ‘empathy nudges’ in a company that come the grassroots of an organisation. Belinda’s focus is empathy in language, empathy in leadership and empathy in conflict. Belinda works with her team including a hostage negotiator to deliver empathy in conflict training and how to have honest productive conversations.

In 2015, Belinda received an OBE for services to women in technology, and she has been voted one of the most innovative women on Twitter by Forbes. She was also chosen to be a Young Global Leader for the World Economic Forum. Her new campaign, The Truth About Tech, fights against Tech Addiction and has taken her to Davos in 2019 and got coverage on the front page of the Guardian. Belinda is currently Empathy-In-Residence at Centrica, one of the world’s biggest utility companies.

As a speaker Belinda Parmar is honest and professional. She is passionate about speaking and helping others, and her energetic style and charisma ensures a fun and learning experience for everyone in the audience.
