Laura is a TV News producer for the BBC with over 10 years of experience in breaking news and developing stories. With that, Laura knows all too well the pressures of managing a demanding personal life with a busy work schedule. Laura speaks openly about how she’s learnt to manage her wellness in the workplace and shares tips for thriving in a fast-paced and challenging environment.
She uses her extensive knowledge within broadcasting to remove the stigma of mental illness in the workplace and to encourage leaders to realise the financial and moral benefits of putting wellbeing at the heart of everything they do.
Laura shares how wellbeing is not only the right thing to do but it has a direct impact on our productivity and profitability in companies. It’s no longer a nice to have but a business imperative.

“Laura has run mental health and wellbeing workshops with our young people at the Prince’s Trust for a number of years. Her open and authentic nature has meant that our young people have felt comfortable to open up with her almost straight away every time. Laura shares her personal story in an open and moving way, and I feel that it is the core to others feeling they are less alone in their own journeys.
The sessions have excellent content, and is presented in an interactive way. A lot of our young people have struggled in traditional classroom environments but Laura’s workshops have helped them engage through a mix of writing, reflecting, creating, drawing, and conversing. Quite often by the end of the session, we would have young people who had not been able to voice their story or their goals before confidently sharing with the group of 12 others.”
