Men's Talk Presenter & Panel Expert, Emma-Jane Taylor: Emma-Jane is an Author, Keynote Speaker and CEO of The Works Company (series of lifestyle businesses). She currently presents The Emma Jane Show on YouTube & Spotify as well as presenting for the Well-Being show on Mid-Morning Matters for Marlow FM Radio. Her work is focused to change, sharing voices and giving back hope and strength to the many suffering in silence. Her own traumatic journey led her to write her motivational debut book, Don't Hold Back. Through her work and life story she very much sees the importance of supporting men in life and giving them the freedom to speak and be liberated by their own voice.

Comedian, Toni Kent: As a stand up comedian and writer, Toni uses humour to explore difficult and taboo topics without scaring or boring audiences. Having seen male relatives become isolated due to poor mental health, and witnessed how grief, relationship break ups and financial difficulties can be significant contributing factors, she is interested in supporting broader, more honest conversations about how collectively we can support each other. As the mother of a son, her hope is that she can help to raise him in such a way that he is never ashamed to discuss his feelings. And as the mother of a daughter, she hopes to raise her free of the expectation that men should only ever be ‘strong’.

Panel:

Chris Bramley: Chris is a staunch mental health advocate helping find balance and recovery across anxiety, depression, burnout, acceptance, and the ingrained problems resulting from business and cultural expectations. He is a coach, mentor, speaker and author, with a passion for problem-solving, teaching and learning. He works globally through helping companies and individuals learn how to learn, progress, find certainty through leadership and culture changes to re-humanise business and society and find value and purpose. He is published in fiction and fantasy, human learning, and general humour, as well as a blogger, Tweeter, and fitness aficionado, with far too many extra hobbies besides.

Kev Waite: Kev is an international mental health public speaker having done talks for companies in Australia, big companies in the UK such as Microsoft, and has more recently delivered his mental health talk at Wembley stadium, the Olympic Stadium, the Emirates stadium, and the Ricoh arena in Coventry. Talking straight from the heart, Kev is always very open and honest with his mental health work letting people know exactly what it’s like living with bipolar disorder and the battle he faces every day living with the illness. He doesn’t hold back and it’s this pure honesty that makes his mental health work so genuine and enables people to relate and use it to inspire. Kev is now a men’s mental heath ambassador and is making it his sole mission to help as many men as possible with their mental health and break the stigma, using his story of how he lives with such a crippling mental illness and turns it into achieving great things for himself. Being a mental health fine artist as well as running a health & fitness business, Kev is always busy achieving things and helping others.

Lorraine Milligan: Celebrity make-up artist and portrait photographer Lorraine, has spent a career making people look and feel confident and is a confidant and sounding board for her Clients. She is the Founder and Creator of the Male Breast Cancer awareness Campaign she launched in October 2019 entitled #BlueGetitToo after her partner Richard, was diagnosed at the age of 40, with Secondary Breast Cancer. Lorraine is the emotional voice for men with illness and related mental health struggles and can empathise with men and their partners, when it comes to hearing their inner voice.

Graham Cooper: Graham has built a successful business career based on leading and coaching people to achieve their best as an individual and also as part of a winning team. He is passionate about mental health and wellbeing in general but especially regarding how it affects men and how they express their emotions, adjust and lead a happy and fulfilling life.
