Jordi Gil Vernet (Graduate in Philosophy and Sciences of Education of University of Barcelona, UB; Honorary Collaborator at University of Malaga) is a former teacher of Philosophy who decided to leave secondary school for training professionals as a freelance four years ago. He has been teaching for over twenty-five years. Currently, his trainees are mainly managers and highly qualified professionals, especially physicians and health professionals as well as engineers.
The courses and workshops that he teaches —to undergraduates and postgraduates students, and professionals too— can be grouped under two headings: “Social and managing skills” (for instance communication, public speaking, leadership, etc.) and “Humanistic thinking for professionals”. In this field, he runs courses such as ‘Methodology and Philosophy of Science’, ‘Professional Ethics (or Professional Deontology)’, ‘Some Reflections on Technique’, ‘Philosophy of Mind’, etc.
In recognition of his professional performance, he was named ‘Honorary Collaborator’ of the University of Malaga in 2015. Since then, he teaches in there as an external expert in several masters and seminars.
He loves reading, writing, and playing sport – especially running and swimming – in his leisure time.
