Institute for Global Integral Competence

J. Morris Hicks

Jim holds a BS in Industrial Engineering from Auburn University and a Master of Business Administration from The University of Hawaii. In 2009, he earned a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and e/Cornell. Since publishing his book, Healthy Eating, Healthy World in 2011, he has pursued a career in public speaking, wellness consulting and blogging to an international audience—publishing over 800 articles in just 2 ½ years at hpjmh.com

A former corporate executive with Polo Ralph Lauren in New York, J. Morris Hicks has always been what he calls a “Big Picture” guy. In 2002, after becoming curious about the “optimal diet” for humans, he began an intensive study that led him to explore a much bigger picture than he ever imagined — discovering many startling issues and opportunities along the way.

As a public speaker, his favorite topic is Food. Health. Planet. Our Future as a Species. In it, he explains how our food choices threaten not only our health but also Earth’s ability to sustain us indefinitely as a species. Without a doubt, his topic is of great importance to every human being in the world. For compared to sustainability, all forms of human endeavor shrink to insignificance. And without sustainability, there will be no health, no wealth and no peace.
