‘Stanley Notte is an outstanding motivational speaker, who speaks from a place of humility, bravery and compassion. Through relaying his own personal experiences in battling with mental health, he reminded employees to speak up about mental health and to seek all available help possible. On a second visit Stanley portrayed his experiences through the medium of performance art, which was a unique, and powerful way to get an incredible message across. It was a privilege to welcome Stanley Notte as a motivational speaker as part of our organisations wellness strategy. C Spillane, HR BUSINESS PARTNER VOXPRO
