NextGen Talks – Episode 3 | Mental health and well-being with Leon Taylor, Olympic Medallist

Our NextGen Talks podcast explores key themes and issues, such as the future of work, next generation leadership, sustainability, well-being and more, with special guests from various industries and sectors.

In this third episode, we had the pleasure of speaking to former competitive diver and Olympic silver medallist, Leon Taylor, on the pivotal and highly topical issue of mental health and well-being.

As we slowly transition back to some sort of “normality”, everyone will be feeling different levels of anxiety, concern and stress. So how can we manage some of the challenges we may face during this transition period and beyond? How can we support one another through this process? And what lessons from the pandemic will help shape how we live and work in future, and to improve our mental well-being? In this insightful conversation, Leon provides some positive, practical advice and guidance on these important topics.
