Neurodiversity is something which I experience in every day life as a father of children who are neurodiverse and also as someone with Dyscalculia. I’ve worked in Health Safety and Wellbeing and also HR for a number of years through a variety of industries. Neurodiversity is a topic which is close to my heart and is something I volunteer to promote in my organisation alongside a lot of other committed volunteers.

RSA Insurance is my current employer and its been great in empowering colleagues to get involved in volunteering and providing peer to peer support etc. Also since RSA joined Intact Financial Corporation in 2021 we have extended that even further and work with our colleagues in Canada to learn from each other and share ideas.
