Hilton Nathanson, entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist, is our guest this week. While not a graduate of the Process, Hilton’s life, and life pursuits have been deeply touched by the everyday radius of many Hoffman graduates’ love. It’s amazing to see just how wide a radius our graduates’ love and healing travels. The ripple effect of the Hoffman Process worked through Hilton in a wonder-filled, tangible way.

In this episode, Hilton shares the effect of witnessing the profound change the Hoffman Process engendered in people close to him. So much so, that what he witnessed became the inspiration for a film that took seven years to complete.


Chasing Wonders The Film

In 2020 Hilton’s production company, Hianlo Films premiered this feature film called Chasing Wonders at the Adelaide Film Festival. Hoffman Institute’s research inspired Hilton’s original idea for the film. The foundational underpinnings of the Process shine through the film’s storyline.

Chasing Wonders is the heart-warming story of a young boy who is encouraged by his grandfather to take off on the adventure of a lifetime, leading him to the heart of the human condition – understanding our parents’ past but not being defined by it. This is something Hilton speaks to in today’s episode – how important it is for us to share with our children when they are ready, stories about our lives before they were born.

Chasing Wonders premieres in the United States on June 4th, 2021, on Amazon, VUDU, and Google TV. The Hoffman Institute’s scholarship fund will receive a portion of the proceeds from the film as part of the US release, bringing Love’s Everyday Radius full circle.


Originally from Perth, Australia, Hilton arrived in London in 1992. There, he spent his first years working in financial markets before embarking on a career in asset management. Subsequently, he founded Marble Bar Asset Management where he has been Chairman since 2013.

Throughout his career, Hilton has taken an active interest in the psychology of decision-making. This prompted him to pursue an Executive Master’s Degree in Consulting and Coaching for Change from Insead Business School in 2015.

In 2004, Hilton founded the Rosemarie Nathanson Charitable Trust. The trust supports organizations that advance the welfare and education of young people. Hilton lives in London with his wife and children and is an avid cricket fan, a keen sailor, and a ferocious reader.
