Geoff McDonald - Keynote Speaker, Business Transformation Advisor & Mental Health Campaigner

Breaking the Stigma of Mental Ill Health and Democratizing Mental Fitness

Geoff talked with Jodie Rogers about ending the stigma of depression and anxiety in the workplace and fixing the ‘broken brand’ of mental health to create a more inspiring, aspirational model.

Symbia was founded on a simple idea: that there’s a direct, symbiotic relationship between our teams and ourselves, that our workplaces and our well-being are intertwined. Work is so much more than just a job—it’s where people spend half their waking lives. Each person at Symbia transitioned from corporate to consulting so that they could make work a better place to be.
