Advisory Editorial Board

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.

Suggesting and helping create the framework and content of the day, the Advisory Editorial Board contributes on the topics and issues that will allow delegations to leave motivated and better-armed.
