Having Allan speak at the Beyond the Game Conference was quite a humbling experience and an honour as he shared his story and his challenges with mental health. To share his experiences is something that we can all learn from, particularly in developing our own resilience. I would encourage all organisations to give their staff the opportunity to learn and engage with Allan as I believe he is someone who can not only change lives but change our society for the better.
