Champs’ Managing Director and Founder, Ruth Cooper-Dickson, has spoken at organisations across the world, from delivering the mental health keynote for ING Bank’s ‘global Diversity & Inclusion week’, to Expedia’s ‘global wellness month’ in California. As a patron for UK charity, No Panic, she has been invited to speak at many organisations, including those in the insurance market and legal sector, and networking organisations such as We are the City. Ruth has also been invited to speak at the House of Lords and Condé Nast, demonstrating how engaging her message is for diverse audiences.
Since 2015, she has spoken at numerous organisations to help them to create a thriving culture of positive wellbeing at work and is currently completing her MSc studies in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology. She is also conducting her research in the area of Coaching and Post-Traumatic Growth.
What People Are Saying
“Ruth's sessions on mental "wealth" and anxiety were not only engaging, they were interactive and even fun. Mental illness is not something that is easy for people to talk, let alone laugh about, but Ruth's openness to talk about her own struggles and relate to her audience made it so much easier for people to open up. Her sessions received the highest praise out of all of the speakers I booked.”
“No Panic is truly honoured to have Ruth Cooper-Dickson as a patron and spokesperson for the charity. She has shown so much support for the cause and her honesty and openness about her personal journey with mental health makes her genuinely relatable to our many service users. We are thrilled to have her onboard with the charity and excited for what the future holds.”
