Katie Buckingham is an award-winning social entrepreneur and Founder of Altruist Enterprises since 2013. She helps organisations to prevent, identify and tackle stress within workplaces. We are looking forward to welcoming Katie on the TEDxAstonUniversity stage where she will share her innovative idea about how to tackle mental health issues at the workplace!
Irritated by the lack of awareness of mental health,Altruist Enterprises was formed to increase knowledge and encourage conversations around mental health. In 2014, Katie was invited to attend the prestigious ‘Women of the Year Lunch’ in honour of her work raising awareness and reducing the stigma attached to mental health. Katie has been featured in The Guardian and Evening Standard Newspapers and regularly blogs for the Huffington Post.
