Supporting mental resilience across the business, for both our people and leaders, is a key part of our roles in HR at ING Australia. Over the past two weeks we were lucky enough to hear from Simon Gillard as part of R U OK? day and then take part in a yoga and mindfulness session at My Urban Yoga - Surry Hills. Feeling very lucky to work for a business who recognises the importance of both physical and mental wellness.

”You were an inspiration to many. Those who are willing to share give more than they know to people in need. As I say our pain should be their gain. Leave nothing on the table.

Thank you Simon - You were fantastic and the boys engaged with your messages.

Simon came across so well, I received many compliments on how honest and authentic he was about his message rather than an overly polished book salesperson and our audience genuinely responded to him. Many of them felt such empathy, admiration and respect for what he has been through and how he has turned it around into a way to help people.
