Let’s Talk: It’s Time to Look After You
Finding time for mindfulness in this chaotic modern world has never been easy, but in an effort to promote positivity and mental resilience, we invite you to the second Knowledge Guild of 2017—Let’s Talk: It’s Time to Look After You. Bringing together some of the leading voices in mental health to share their stories, expertise and practical tips on the topic, we can begin to break down the stigma and finally make time to look after you.
This June, we invite you to listen to the experiences of those who have struggled in silence, but are now speaking out to make sure that we find time for wellbeing; that we know it’s okay not to be okay; and, above all, that no one has to face this battle alone again.

Our host for the evening is...
With over twenty years’ experience, Joanna Gosling is one of the best-known faces on BBC News. The presenter has broken some of the nation’s biggest news stories, from political scoops during election time, to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Juggling motherhood with her two careers as a broadcaster and an author, Joanna’s first book is a survival guide for busy women, sharing the secrets of her balancing act. Warm, down-to-earth and personable, Joanna brings her charm and professionalism to the role of host for our showcase.
And here's who's speaking!
One of The Telegraph’s best-loved columnists and a critically acclaimed author, Bryony Gordon has bravely penned everything from her party girl escapades to her life-long battle with depression, anxiety and OCD. The voice of the thirtysomething generation, Bryony’s candid confessions speak to a modern nation.
Opening up a dialogue to mental health as the founder of Mental Health Mates; running the marathon for the royals’ charity Heads Together; and kicking off her own podcast, Mad World, with none other than Prince Harry, Bryony is doing her bit to break down the stigma surrounding mental health and to make it okay to say.
