David Whyte

David Whyte, poet, author, and speaker, grew up with a strong, imaginative influence from his Irish mother among the hills and valleys of his father’s Yorkshire, and now makes his home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The author of eight books of poetry and four books of prose, he is an associate fellow at Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford and the recipient of two honorary doctorates. David brings his poetry to large audiences throughout the world, and is one of the few poets to bring his work into the field of organizational development.
