Our Speakers & Trainers

Annabelle Chester
Neurodiversity Speaker

I am a Business Psychologist Consultant, that has specialised in neurodiversity and inclusive leadership. I founded Neurobelle Consulting in January 2023, with the mission to change business strategy to show how employing neurodiverse individuals (or individuals with hidden disabilities) is a huge competitive advantage. Neurobelle is also on a mission to show and train how, once hired, you can get the absolute best out of neurodiverse individuals. Thus, creating a positive, engaged and happy culture and environment, for the staff to thrive. Having dyslexia, endometriosis and suspected ADHD myself, I have had a great deal of first hand lived experience of what ‘good’ looks like, and what ‘not so good’ looks like!

I have had amazing support all the way through to discrimination and adversity. I developed Neurobelle to educate and support companies around neurodiversity and inclusive leadership. I believe strongly in authenticity, inclusive leadership, an ‘I Can’ mindset, and creating spaces where happiness isn’t just a goal, it’s the everyday reality.

When your workforce invests the majority of their week working with you, why not invest in them too?

Haley White
Menopause Speaker

Haley White is a trainer, facilitator and public speaker, with a focus on workplace wellbeing training.

With a degree in Business Psychology and an MSc in Organisational Psychology, lived experience of mental health issues and having run a wellbeing centre in Greece, Haley is well placed to support organisations to become happier and more productive places to be.

She has multi-sector experience having worked across the following areas during her career:
• private
• not-for-profit
• education
• local authority
• central government
• international development

This has led to a deep understanding of organisations and the importance of mental health at work. For example, Haley has worked with the construction industry to help tackle the stigma around men’s mental health.
In 2021, Haley discovered she was perimenopausal and like a lot of women, didn’t really know what this meant. Through her exploration, she discovered there are over 6.5 million menopausal women in the UK workforce, and a staggering 900,000 of them have left their jobs due to inadequate support.
Haley realised that something needed to be done and so she created Menospace, a menopause training and consultancy organisation.
Haley is on a mission to normalise the conversations around menopause at work.

Some of the organisations Haley has worked with include NHS, Colt Technology, Wates Construction, Queen Mary University, Thames Water, BBC, Dentons Solicitors, and Mind.

Sam Flynn
Digital Wellbeing Speaker

Having achieved a Psychology Degree and Masters in Organisational Psychology, Sam’s first business focused on designing, delivering and analysing employee engagement surveys for organisations. This soon transitioned in to a social media training business, when Sam identified a gap of effective training in the market 13 years ago. After noticing her own smartphone use dramatically increase during the pandemic, seeing the effects this had on her own wellbeing and her subsequent actions to reduce her smartphone use, Sam became passionate about digital wellbeing and the impact this can have on individual and workplace wellbeing, as well as productivity and output.
