David speaks on how placing his people at the heart of the business has completely transformed their workplace culture and performance. He discusses how key it is to understand how we can help people to thrive in their jobs by opening up and encouraging conversations about mental health.

Sharing the ways in which they have improved the working culture and aim to break down the stigma of mental health internally and externally, David opens up about the changes made during and after the pandemic - reconnecting with his teams and introducing a hybrid working model where employees are in control.
