Quick quote Thomas Bell

“I’ve worked with MY WHOLE SELF Founder Thomas at multiple events and sat with him on a number of panels since 2016. I’ve also been pleased to have Thomas as part of my Minds@Work movement since our inception. Thomas has spoken for us at numerous events during that time and he gives a very vulnerable and authentic illustration of his own mental health challenges. He also has the ability to bring some humour to a very serious subject. I would recommend Thomas to any organisation who wants to encourage others to tell their stories and in so doing, address the stigma of mental ill health in workplaces.” – Geoff McDonald – Founder of Minds@Work & Former Global VP of HR at Unilever

I’ve had the immense pleasure of watching Thomas Duncan Bell speak at various events in person. He is inspiring, motivating and consistently engages the audience in a thought provoking way that gets them reflecting on all the substantive points of his speech. Any event is much better for having Thomas as one of its speakers. – Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu – BBC Diversity Corespondant, Author & Community Activity
