Here’s where we get to meet!

I’m a big believer in the power of face to face connection. There’s something special about sharing a room with likeminded people who are passionate about the same things as you and finding that sense of belonging. 

I love working with forward thinking corporates, startups and universities to help them have conversations about difficult social issues and turn that into meaningful action. But I’ll only ever speak and run workshops and events on the issues that I’m truly passionate about. Because I believe that to create the space for people to be open and honest, that space needs to be held and led by someone equally as passionate about the things that matter to them.

We need to talk about about male suicide.

Keynote: We need to talk about male suicide


Drawing on her challenging TEDx talk, Steph Slack shares her personal story of how losing her uncle to suicide caused her to question how we react to men who experience suicidal thoughts. Steph asks: what if we stop seeing having suicidal thoughts as something unusual, change our stereotypical expectations of men and instead, support men who have the courage to be vulnerable with us?

What would happen if we all went home and had conversations with the men in our lives about what they’re feeling and thinking? The answer to solving today’s male suicide crisis may be simply listening to the men in our lives.

Fit your own oxygen mask first

We can’t support others if we aren’t first supporting ourselves. And we should always be our own priority. Using my experience of working within high performing corporate law firms and simultaneously supporting friends through suicidal thoughts; subsequent coaching qualifications; and my own experience of mental health, I help your employees develop tools to take a proactive approach to their mental health.

This can be a talk or a workshop.

Let's talk about the 'S' word

Let's talk about the 'S' word

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45, and of all young people. Drawing on my personal story, I help you to start a conversation about suicide in your organisation, helping you to better understand the factors that can be involved and the appropriate language to use to have that conversation.

This can be a talk or a workshop and focuses on making suicide relevant, uncovering its motives, spotting the signs and actionable steps to support loved ones. It can also include an audience takeaway.
