Geoff McDonald Patron


    Geoff McDonald is recognised as a leading campaigner for breaking the taboo about depression and anxiety at work. He also consults to organisations across all sectors globally. Mental health continues to attract stigma in the corporate world, and employees are reluctant to seek help. After being diagnosed with depression himself, Geoff appreciates how far this can affect team performance. As Global Vice President HR at Unilever plc, Geoff was able to overview the problem from an authoritative vantage-point.

    Today he devotes himself full-time to his crusade for encouraging people to reach out and ask for help if suffering from depression, anxiety or may be bi polar. That help can often be in the form of the specialist stress consultants and therapists who are trained to provide professional help for corporate employees.
