This Can Happen is delivering a new standard of solutions-led talks and discussions led by original and fresh speakers and panellists. Early Partners have been asked to join our Advisory Editorial Board to help shape our uplifting and thought provoking agenda. All our speakers are genuine experts with experience of providing solutions to mental health in the workplace.

The aim is that all the speakers will help to empower the delegations to return to their companies with new ideas to help support those with mental health issues and to provide them with the tools to disseminate what they have learnt.
