Colin Minto is a world leader in resilience, workforce stress, burnout and EDI. He supports organisations to develop resilient workers and environments where employees can openly talk about mental health.
Having overcome and managed his own personal battle with OCD, anxiety and stress over 40 years, he now helps others do the same, combining his lived experience with his knowledge and understanding of the corporate world. Drawing on his own mental health challenges, he shares how each time he has come back faster, stronger and smarter.
In a 30 year career in HR, recruitment and talent acquisition, Colin has worked with global organisations such as Disney, Deutsche Bank, Liberal Democrats, Lloyd’s of London, AXA, Marriott, and HSBC.
Colin’s open, honest and thought-provoking talks, first shock with his inspirational journey …but then provide practical ways to optimise mental health to survive and thrive in a modern world.
A resilient workforce is, according to Colin, a key factor in future success as these employees don’t burn out but stay longer and outperform expectations.
Colin has created a proprietary model that identifies 15 drivers of pressure and stress in people’s lives and careers. These 15 drivers are pushing people over the edge with modern work and management being responsible for most of them.
Colin delivers Keynote Conference speeches, group corporate employee education sessions, employee workshops and one-to-one coaching to support people to overcome their difficulties, build resilience to prevent burning out, and recover from cognitive or physical breakdown.
He incorporates cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), exposure and response prevention therapy (ERP), breathing and relaxation exercises, mindfulness and managing the 15 drivers of stress.
Colin has also appeared on a number of podcasts including It’s Time For Change, talking about OCD, the impact it can have and how employers must respond. He has been a regular contributor to The Business Transformational Network, where he shared videos on managing stress in the workplace and mental health.
Colin Minto will help transform employees’ lives for the better, building resilience, strengthening cognitive fitness and optimising results within organisations. He will help prevent employees from burning out, being absent with stress and ultimately leaving.
Optimising people will in turn optimise organisations, enabling all to thrive.
Colin supports organisations to welcome neurodiversity and mental differences in the workforce, so they can leverage this for competitive advantage.
