Changing Corporate Culture: Ending Stigma Around Depression and Anxiety in the Workplace (Ep.9)
Geoff’s background in teaching, HR, marketing, communications and sustainability is considerable. During his 25 years with Unilever (a global corporation with a turnover of £50 billion, 170,000 employees in 90 countries around the world), his experience has been truly global working across Africa, the Middle-East and Turkey, Australasia and Asia, Europe and the Americas.
Geoff is a sought after speaker, inspiring and provoking organizations to put purpose and well-being at the center of everything they do. His experience in Unilever, under the pupilage of Paul Polman, allows him to provide very practical insights and to speak on how to go about truly embedding PURPOSE and address the taboo associated with well-being (particularly mental health) within a large global multi-national organization.
He now consults on how to address the stigma linked to depression and anxiety in the workplace, with a particular emphasis on raising awareness of these issues and providing some practical strategies as to how one might go about addressing this growing modern illness.
