In this episode we interview social change pioneer and mental health campaigner, Alex Stanley. In this moving and wonderfully refreshing interview, Alex talks openly about the effect of tragically losing his older brother to suicide at a young age. After something of a delayed reaction, Alex talks about what drove him to step out of the corporate world of sports marketing to become an entrepreneur and set up his own business called Onigo, which he describes as a social change business which encourages people outdoors, to spend more time with friends. In this deeply personal interview, Alex also talks about his mental health campaign work with CALM and his own initiative called “Mates Matter”. We cover masculinity, meeting Prince William and why dating can be harder than business!  This interview is a real deep dive into subjects that are important for the future well being of our society.
