Emotional stability is still a taboo subject in our working lives and the marketing industry is no exception.
The rise of the digital age means we’ve descended into an ‘always on’ culture with no clear distinction between work and play, day and night.
As part of The Marketing Society’s new brave agenda, we partnered with M&M Global for our Being Bold around Mental Health event on Wednesday 12 April at 5.30pm at Engine Group when we had a frank and searching conversation around what is often referred to as `the illness of our time.’
We heard from a range of special guest speakers in a fish bowl format which means anyone who had something to say on the topic had a place in the spotlight.
