Personalising Mental Health & Wellbeing

This year, the Good Day at Work Conversation 2019 will answer some of the fundamental questions still up for debate around wellbeing at work, specifically how wellbeing can be made personal to all employees; whether that’s the personalisation of experience, environment or the way we work.

Introducing our host: Karen Leftley

Our host for the day is Karen Leftley, the former Director of Change and Transformation Practice at BT and the newly announced, President of the British Quality Foundation (BQF). Karen is an experienced and talented host who will be there to summarise, organise and activate the learnings from our speakers.
