He holds a degree in Marine Zoology, and is an Associate Fellow of Templeton College and the Said Business School at the University of Oxford. David Whyte is the author of six volumes of poetry and two best-selling books of prose: "Crossing the Unknown Sea: Work as a Pilgrimage of Identity" and "The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America," as well as an audio lecture series.
