Our fourth annual Mental Health summit, which took place in October, focused on mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. We were delighted that some 150 people joined the webinar to hear from an outstanding panel of speakers, namely:
> Karen Jackson, who chaired the event, is the founder of didlaw, a specialist practice in employment law, particularly discrimination of all kinds.
> Dr Jacqui Dyer MBE is President of the Mental Health Foundation. She is an independent health and social care consultant with a background in adult mental health commissioning as well as community and family social work.
> Jonny Jacobs, who has just moved to Starbucks where he is Finance Director for EMEA. Before a period at M&S, Jonny spent seven years at Pladis in senior finance roles in the UK and the US.
> Jin Chin is Head of HR Transformation/Chief of Staff at Legal and General. A long standing volunteer with the Samaritans, he was the Chair of Trustees for the Central London Samaritan branch for four years.
> Annette Andrews is an experienced Chief People Officer and has worked with senior leaders on a global basis in highly regulated organisations including Ford Motor Company, Lloyds Banking Group, and most recently, Lloyd’s Insurance Market.
