There are many aspects of TCH that make it special and significant – if we may say so ourselves. But the one feature of the conference that excites us the most is the array of fascinating speakers that will expound their wisdom on mental health to our delegates.
It’s been thrilling to meet each and every one of our confirmed speakers so far. All thought leaders in their field, their knowledge and creativity is awesome and we can’t wait to share their ideas with you.
It’s been a bumper month for speaker sign ups so far. We’ve scoured the globe to find professionals whose life’s work is focused on bringing mental health awareness to the fore and eradicating the stigma in businesses and organisations so that staff don’t suffer in silence.
See all the speakers confirmed so far, and read on for our most recent bookings. Don’t forget to Link In with them and follow them on social media for a taste of the incredible content you can expect to hear at TCH in November.
