About the Speaker
After nearly committing suicide at the age of 18, Hayley realised how mental health issues are increasingly affecting millennials and she was passionate to do something about it. Hayley has spoken to over 40,000 people sharing her story, life lessons and strategies on well-being, inclusion and resilience.
Hayley published her first book "The ABCs To Student Success" teaching young people life lessons and strategies on how to sustain a healthy mental wellbeing, after facing different trials and tribulations.
Hayley has spoken at some of the largest gender diversity conferences in Europe, the Houses of Parliament, Wembley Arena and to a number of top international schools in East Africa. She has worked with senior leaders at Microsoft as well as executive leaders at Unilever, and also sits on the board of Wagamama where she advises on their diversity and sustainability policies. Her insight has helped different senior leaders with developing strategies on how to cultivate an environment that focuses on inclusion and healthy well-being for young talent.
She is a voice to the voiceless and hope to the hopeless.
