Our Director Training, Mike O'Hara, is an experienced keynote speaker that has delivered seminars and masterclasses to organisations all over the world.
Driven by a desire to normalise conversations around our mental health and empower those in need to seek support, his open and engaging style has won awards and plaudits - most recently in his mention from HM Queen Elizabeth II in the 2022 New Years' Honours list.
A military veteran with 13+ years experience, Mike shares his journey with his own personal challenges and his guiding belief in the power of connection, community and authenticity for better mental health.
'I’m really grateful for the incredible opportunity to learn from this talk. Mike was clearly extremely experienced and knowledgeable. He has amazing people skills - with an ability to adapt and meet the needs of his audience. He delivers with a perfect mix of confidence and sensitivity; it was a genuine privilege to have him speak to us today'

Our speaking engagements not only provide an interesting and novel take on the subject of mental health, informed by lived experience, but offer practical tips and techniques to benefit the individual in their own pursuit of wellbeing.
Engaging employees and nurturing enthusiasm is essential for businesses to drive productivity, as well as retain and attract the best talent. From increased morale and reduced sickness absence, keeping people engaged is the under-emphasised key to organisational success.
Start Within offers you the opportunity to invest in a day of bespoke learning for your team. We create a session focused on you and what you'd like to achieve with your event.
