ADVISORY BOARD 2019

The 2019 Advisory Editorial Board and its members

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.

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.

The Advisory Editorial Board meets monthly in London.
