Meet Our Speakers

Meet our speakers

Driving the TCH agenda are a group of speakers, facilitators and panellists who will take centre stage to guide delegations through the schedule on the day.

International thought leaders will present up-to-date research, science and theory about mental health issues and the negative way in which they can affect every individual in the workplace.

Every speaker has been carefully selected to deliver valuable outcomes and practical strategic toolkits for teams to take back to their workplace and to make a real difference.

Keep your eye on this page for updates on new speakers over the coming months.
