Men: It’s OK to Talk (and other ways to process difficult stuff)

Tuesday, 11 June 2024
11:00 am – 12:00 pm (UK time)
    • Jay Unwin, Consultant Trainer & Speaker, Mental Health in Business

Talking is good for us. We all know that and yet some of us find it hard to talk about how we feel, especially when we aren’t feeling good.

This session is aimed at men and those who would like to support the men in their lives. The aim of the session is to shine a light on why some men find it difficult to open up, to explore ways to support men when they are struggling and to share some alternative ways to process difficult stuff, for those who really don’t like talking.

In this interactive session, attendees will develop an understanding of some of the challenges facing men today and will take away some helpful ways to support men (or themselves) through difficult times.

About our Speaker
With a decade of experience in health, fitness and wellbeing, plus a former career in science education, Jay is extremely well-placed to simplify ideas which are often considered complex or overwhelming.

After burning out quite catastrophically on two separate occasions, Jay developed a mental and physical fitness philosophy to rebuild the strength of his body and mind, and to avoid slipping back down ever again.

This philosophy is now the cornerstone of what he teaches to leaders and their organisations around the world, including Frontier Economics, Christian Aid, the RAC and the University of Southampton. It’s all pinned on a few central tenets: accessibility, adaptability and efficiency.

Jay's mission is quite simple: to help as many people as possible improve their overall quality of life, through improved mental and physical fitness.
