Register Now - Same Storm. Different Boats.

Throughout this pandemic storm, all of us have been impacted differently. Navigating this storm means taking care of ourselves first and then having effective conversations with our colleagues who might be in a different boat than us. Developing a meaningful mental health culture within your organization has never been so critical to ensuring the mental wellness of your teams.

Please join us for a virtual fireside chat with Canada’s and KPMG’s first Chief Mental Health Officer: Denis Trottier, FCPA, FCA. The session will be moderated by Geeta Tucker, FCPA, FCMA, President and CEO of CPA Manitoba. Denis is very open about his lived experience with clinical depression, and he is a sought-after speaker across the country.

“We are all in the same storm but not all in the same boat.” –  Denis Trottier

Throughout this pandemic storm, all of us have been impacted differently. Navigating this storm means taking care of ourselves first and then having effective conversations with our colleagues who might be in a different boat than us.  Developing a meaningful mental health culture within your organization has never been so critical to ensuring the mental wellness of your teams.

If you happened to miss it, we invite you to read CPA Canada’s “The Quiet Crisis” where Denis shared his lived experience to help people suffering in silence.

You will walk away from this session with ideas to better face your own storm and be more equipped to support your circle of care, be it at home or on the work front.

Mental Health is health.

*Please note that this session will be delivered live only.
