The Science of Mental Wellbeing

Tuesday, 6 October,
10.00am – 11.00am BTS
Online webinar

Our mental wellbeing is often tested when life circumstances change unexpectedly and for the worse — such as the recent/ current pandemic. These challenges, however, present the opportunity to rise above and come back even stronger than you were before. Mentally resilient people are able to survive challenging situations, but mentally tough individuals tend to even prosper in stressful situations, so how can we all learn to be more mentally thought now?

We are pleased to be joined by Helena Whitmore, head of private banking from SEB and Annely Kurg, leadership coach and mentor on this highly relevant subject. 


Helena Whitmore is the Head of SEB’s Private Banking UK team, and a tax and wealth planning specialist with many years’ experience advising members of the Nordic community in the UK. Prior to joining SEB Helena was the head of the private client department for an international law firm based in London.  She is a strong believer in the importance of focusing on wellbeing in the workplace and will share some experiences of what SEB are doing in this area.



Annely Kurg is a Psychologist, specialised in Leadership, People & Culture Change, Learning and Development. She has been researching and lecturing Clinical Psychology and currently leading global Organisation/ Learning Development, People Change and Transformation projects for Oil & Gas, Hospitality, FS, Media, Trade Union and IT sectors.
