Alex gave a compelling and honest presentation at the LGT event for younger professionals where he discussed the importance how you can help improve your mental health in the workplace. It was raw and refreshingly honest, with some excellent feedback from all the attendees.

Alex delivered a talk on 'Remaining sane in an insane world' at an event we held for younger professionals in the finance world. He touched upon the importance of checking in with colleagues and how you can personally take steps to improve your mental health and confidence in the workplace. Sharing his own journey, the talk was very moving, informative, and thought-provoking. Thank you Alex!

Alex came to our office as part of our 'Health & Wellbeing day" - his talk was really insightful as someone that wants to be able to help but doesn't always know how to approach the conversation. I found it very useful and it left me with a lot to think about. Alex did a fab job and was very open which made it easier to relate to (as someone who has struggled myself, I don't connect as well with someone who hasn't experienced it). Amazing talk. Thank you Alex!

Had a really good session with Alex, it was really helpful to understand his personal experience and how he deals with it. I think even if you don't suffer from these kinds of issues there are some important pieces of advice to take away.

I attended a talk Alex gave as part of my masters degree in clinical exercise science - it was brilliant, very informative and engaging. Alex was very knowledgable and answered any questions asked. Alex also made time to answer questions I had and provide me with advice, relating to my own experiences, after the talk.

We invited Alex to speak at a social enterprise summit focusing on Improving Health in our community. Alex delivered an excellent keynote on Mental Health Awareness, passionately sharing his own story and giving our participants true insight into the ways people can support others suffering with ill mental health. Alex has amazing specialist knowledge and his keynote was really successful with our participants, bringing a fresh perspective on such a large issue. Thanks Alex!

My vision is to create a movement and show vulnerability in the hope that it inspires others to seek the help they need without feeling shame or fear.
