This week we have Paul Longley kick off our very first show.
I’m driven to help break the stigma associated with “Mental Health”. I've learned there are 3 main stigmas weakness, burden, and embarrassment, that stop men for speaking out. And with my work with Andy’s Man Club we are helping pave the way for men to know that #ItsOkayToTalk and to break the stigma.
For the past 2+years I've helped create a safe environment for men to come and talk with out these fears. I've become a regular speaker within the Hull business community, speaking to audiences of 800+ for the likes of Siemens, Arco, Smith & Nephews, Victoria Plum, ResQ, Department of Work & Pensions. I love to bang the drum for Andy’s Man Club and sharing my “next man” talk which is built on my own experiences and in those gained in helping myself and now over 2500+men (50<70 men weekly in Hull alone) tackle and manage their mental health.
My passion is built on 32 years experience in overseeing production managment for one of the cities largest food manufacturers in Smales Group of companies. Within this role I've led & managed 80+ staff.
I also find the time to work as talent Identification scout and have been for 26 years. Working with Leeds rhinos and now working with my beloved Hull FC in there youth development scouting role.
