Edinburgh-born former Scottish judo champion-turned-breathing expert Stuart Sandeman today (28 July) returned home to launch his book ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’ and share his message about the life-changing impact of breathwork.
Stuart, who splits his time between London and Edinburgh, unveiled his book in the suitably peaceful surroundings of Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. The former financier and DJ learned about the power of transformative breathing techniques and used it to help cope with grief after he tragically lost his girlfriend to cancer.

56 billion reasons to turbo-charge your company’s mental health strategy

Speaker Buzz Posted on October 10, 2022 in Blog

£56 billion.

That’s the amount poor mental health cost UK companies in 2020/21*, as burnout, exhaustion and pandemic-fuelled disengagement from work all took their toll on the country’s workforce.

In today’s ever-more challenging economic climate, retaining and motivating your people by putting in place a robust wellbeing strategy has never been more important.

Companies who invest proper time and resources into supporting and engaging their staff will reap the rewards through an enhanced company culture, with workers feeling better valued and appreciated. This in turn will mean fewer employees seeking a job move, helping reduce prohibitive recruitment costs.

With ‘making mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority’ the key focus of World Mental Health Awareness Day 2022 on 10 October, this is the ideal time to turbo-charge your organisation’s commitment to your employees’ mental health.

Companies working with any of our sought-after speakers specialising in mental health and wellbeing – including global breathwork sensation Stuart Sandeman, TV presenter Gail Porter and GP and uber-adventurer Dr Andrew Murray – are guaranteed an exceptional, hugely beneficial experience.

Instantly lift your staff’s morale, sense of camaraderie and shared understanding by hosting an inspirational speaker at your workplace wellbeing event.

Or, to help work towards a more sustained and lasting culture change, why not commission a series of tailored workshops over the course of several months, focusing on the main mental health and wellbeing issues identified as a priority focus for your particular organisation.

But don’t just take our word for it, here’s a snapshot of feedback:

  • Stuart Sandeman’s session for Edrington UK, demonstrating how better breathing can help tackle stress, boost physical and mental health, and overcome a negative mindset, “blew everyone away” and left employees “engaged, inspired and energised”
  • “Gail [Porter] is an engaging, inspirational speaker on the topic of mental health and I would strongly recommend her to others looking for a keynote speaker” – Toni Graves, Global Head Reward & Wellbeing, Allen & Overy
  • Dr Andrew Murray’s “public speaking is an excellent mix of learning, practical advice and humour” – George Winter, virologist and author
