Compassion Connects

Compassion should be regarded as core to any organization that wishes to optimize their key resource, people, and hence their bottom line.

Compassion Connects is an organizational and leadership consultancy service, with the science of compassion at its centre.  It was established to place compassion at the heart of organizations, in terms of their strategy, business planning and very fabric.
