MHFA speakers2

At this year’s MADWorld Summit, taking place on 21st October, in person, in Central London, Mental Health First Aid England have two speakers joining us to share their expertise and tips on how employee mental health and wellbeing can be embedded into business priorities.

Wellbeing support as a mandatory KPI for managers

 Simon Blake, Mental Health First Aid England’s Chief Executive, will be speaking as part of the 3:20pm panel session ‘Should wellbeing support be a mandatory KPI for managers?’
We know that the relationship between a manager and their report is incredibly important. The Chartered Management Institute reported in 2019 that managers are not equipped to manage mental health. Whether KPIs should be mandatory promises to be a point for discussion – whatever the panel says, we know that it cannot be the role of managers alone, we also need to be clear what else needs to be in place to support the emotional health and wellbeing of staff.

Race and workplace wellbeing

Ama Afrifa-Tchie, Mental Health First Aid England’s Head of People, Wellbeing & Equity is joining Green Park at their free to attend Race and Workplace Wellbeing workshop at 11:15am.
The panel will discuss how the current state of racial inequalities in the workplace affects an individual’s sense of belonging and their mental wellbeing, and what practical actions employers can take to drive change.
Mental Health First Aid England have recently published their Race Equity Impact Report 2021 to share their learning and aspirations in becoming a truly anti-racist social enterprise. Their hope is that this report will inspire employers to create an equitable, anti-racist workplace.

The MAD World Summit is on Thursday 21st October, in-person at 133 Houndsditch in Central London. The Summit is the go-to event for employers who want to Make A Difference to workplace culture, mental health and wellbeing.

There are 3 ways to attend – either with a Full Pass which includes the keynotes, case studies, roundtables and refreshments, a Free Pass for the workshops and exhibition, or a post-event Digital Pass. For more information visit the event agenda or to book visit the booking page.
