Is work good for you? A conference on turning socio-economic challenges into opportunities


Time: to

Queen Margaret University
Queen Margaret Drive
Musselburgh EH21 6UU

Business in the Community, Queen Margaret University, University of Roehampton and NHS Lothian invite entrepreneurs, activists, workers, employers and researchers to join us for an important conference to discuss and debate our contemporary contexts, challenges and potential opportunities.

A toxic work environment can be corrosive to our mental health. A healthier, happier and engaged workforce drives sustainable performance and productivity benefiting employers, employees, customers and makes communities more resilient.

Business in the Community runs the groundbreaking Wellbeing campaign, which supports employers to make the case for wellbeing at work, embed wellbeing into organisations, and tackles the stigma of mental health.

​This event will provide the opportunity to hear from expert speakers on this topic. There will also be the opportunity to take part in discussion and networking sessions.

Speakers will include

  • Alastair Campbell, a writer, communicator and strategist best known for his role as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, Press Secretary and Director of Communications and Strategy
  • Professor Wilson Ng, Professor in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Studies at Roehampton University Business School
  • Dr Patricia Graham, Head of Adult Mental Health Services, NHS Lothian
  • Alan Thornburrow, Director, Business in the Community Scotland

Light refreshments and a buffet lunch will be served.
