We have a fabulous line up of speakers:

Dr Alys Cole-King, Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist, 4 Mental Health & Connecting with People

  • Back in January, Alys was interviewed in The Guardian about the effects of stress in the workplace on NHS staff  “There is huge secrecy about admitting if you are struggling when you are a professional working in the NHS.” Dr Alys Cole-King
  • Follow Alys on twitter @AlysColeKing

Geoff McDonald, former Global VP HR Unilever. International Advocate, Campaigner & Consultant for Mental Health at Work &Co-Founder of Minds@Work

  • You can watch Geoff’s compelling presentation from Head Talks entitled Breaking the Corporate Stigma and hear how personal experience reshaped his approach to caring for his mind in the same way he cared for his body. In his own words, “I learned dental hygiene as a child but no one had taught me mental hygiene.”
