LAUREN WINDLE – ADDICTIONS SPECIALIST

The course has seen people recover from substance, food, gambling, sex and pornography addictions, and co-dependency. She is the perfect motivational speaker for Dry January.

MEN’S MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS SPEAKERS

ROMAN KEMP – MEN’S MENTAL HEALTH/DEPRESSION

In August 2020, Roman Kemp‘s best friend Joe took his own life. Roman was completely blindsided by this, not knowing Joe was even suffering. Seven months later, Roman hosted the hard-hitting documentary Roman Kemp: Our Silent Emergency, which explored the growing concerns of mental health and suicide among young men. Since this sad time, Roman has partnered with the mental health charity MIND to promote speaking out. He has also spoken at countless universities and companies about male mental health and the shocking suicide figures.

CLIVE BRANSON – MENTAL HEALTH WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS

Clive Branson is one of the most inspirational speakers we have at Great British Speakers.  Since 2017, he has lost his mother, father, and father-in-law, who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and Stage 2 Prostate Cancer. This, unsurprisingly, has had a massive impact on his mental health. This depression saw him spend seven weeks in psychiatric hospitals after verbally suggesting he would attempt to take his life. 

Clive’s mission now is to demonstrate that, with a positive mindset, we all have the resilience to overcome adversity. He wants us to know that by recognising that our mental health has been compromised and that we need help, we can move into a brighter place.

ALEX STANIFORTH – MIND OVER MOUNTAINS – HEALTH AND WELLNESS CHARITY

Alex Staniforth is an adventurer who is no stranger to adversity. While battling his own mental and physical health issues – including having a stammer, being bullied, developing anxiety and an eating disorder – Alex took to the outdoors and now encourages others to do the same.

BEN SMITH – 404 FUNDRAISER LGBTQ+

Growing up, Ben Smith wasn’t into running or any sport in fact. At school, he suffered at the hands of bullies, picked on because of his weight and because he was gay. This bullying increased his anxiety and lowered his confidence and self-esteem. However, after suffering a Transient Ischemic Attack – sometimes known as a “mini-stroke! – at 29, Ben felt he needed to change the way he led his life for both his physical – he weighed 17 stone at the time – and mental health.

In 2015, Ben took on the incredible challenge of running 401 marathons in 401 days – equating to over 10,500 miles. Throughout the challenge, he raised £330,000 for two anti-bullying charities. And from here, the 401 Challenge was born. Today, Ben is one of our inspirational health and wellness speakers who has delivered motivational talks to audiences worldwide, covering important issues of physical wellness, mental well-being, resilience and the LGBTQ+ community.
