Would you raise your hand and ask for help for your mental illness at your work? Probably not. While we do ask for help when we suffer from physical issues. Geoff is on a personal mission to change this taboo. After being diagnosed with depression and losing a dear friend that committed suicide Geoff wants to change workplaces to places where people can speak openly about their mental health. Geoff is a highly sought-after speaker, inspiring and provoking organizations to put purpose and well-being at the center of everything they do. His experience at Unilever under the pupilage of Paul Polman allows him to provide very practical insights and speak on how to go about truly embedding purpose. And in addition, address the taboo associated with well-being (particularly mental health) within a large global multi-national organization. Including some real learning’s on what may or may not work. And he recently had the opportunity to engage with Pope Francis on how we can create a more sustainable and inclusive economy through his work with the Global Foundation. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at www.ted.com/tedx
