Event Details

We are delighted to commence the 2019/20 year with our speaker David Beeney of Breaking the Silence, exploring how we can create a kinder culture of trust in our organisations where managers feel confident to ask employees about their well‐being knowing how this dramatically improves employee energy, productivity, engagement and results.

We explore what it is like to suffer in silence with a mental health issue in the workplace
• We improve our understanding of how employees learn to disguise their suffering
• We look to inspire employees to be more open by saying ‘it’s okay not to be okay’ and to share
• We explore lots of ideas of how to create a kinder culture that drives energy levels and improves
• We look at the importance of using the right language to encourage honest and open conversation
about wellbeing.
• We understand the importance of setting the tone from the top and what we mean by
management education.

David has committed the rest of his working life to reducing the stigma of mental health in the workplace. He enjoyed a successful career in newspapers and magazines for over 30 years, and was MD of a regional daily newspaper and Commercial Director for Auto Trader. He always knew that he wanted to do something different at the latter end of his career, he just didn't know what that would be! He now feels he has found true purpose in life and is helping many of the leading brands in the UK to create kinder more compassionate cultures of trust. He was recognised in 2018 as one of the top 101 influencers globally on employee engagement. He is also a qualified Mental Health Counsellor affiliated to the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Practitioners) and a trustee for Mind.

David will be available for a while after the event should you wish to talk further with him on the night.

This session will count as CPD.
