Keynotes – Speaking Points
Owen has worked with over 30 big global corporates, helping their teams avoid workplace stress and burnout. His broad approach and extensive experience means he can talk to a variety of subjects and challenges, but he has a particular slant towards helping people understand why flexible thinking is the key to success rather than ‘positive thinking.
He grew up in Northern Ireland during ‘the troubles’ which he describes as a great training ground for understanding trauma and anxiety. He has a down to earth and humorous approach to his work, with no hesitation in sharing his own challenges and normalising human struggle.
Owen spent the first half of his career working with the dying as a palliative care specialist, which significantly influences how he works today.
His mission is to help people get the best from their lives and work, especially those who may not ordinarily seek help. He regularly supports and collaborates with charities including Hospice UK, The Princess Trust, and a host of others, to help their campaigns for better mental health.
He is an active voice on LGBTQ+ rights and a former columnist for Attitude Magazine.
