Hadleigh Fischer is also the Founder and Managing Director of Resilience Agenda, one of the world’s leading mental health awareness social enterprises. Resilience Agenda’s diaries, notebooks and gift items have inspired over 35,000 people around the world, and they now have over 25,000 supporters online. The Resilience Agenda online community is now the world’s most prominent and active leader of the global Mental Fitness movement.

Hadleigh’s talks, keynotes and seminars inspire people to work on their Mental Fitness just like their physical fitness. The key principle here is that we all have mental health, not just those people with a diagnosis of illness. That's because mental health is about more than just mental illness. Good mental health is about building the resources, habits and rituals of self-care, recovery and resilience, and sharing a normalised, inclusive, engaging and purpose-driven approach to well-being with others. 

With his unique story-telling style, evidence-backed research, and practical no-nonsense strategies, Hadleigh shares how we can all better understand, improve, and talk to others about mental health in a positive, proactive, preventative way - free from jargon, stigma and misunderstanding.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Hadleigh and the team are offering one-hour and two-hour online Zoom/Teams seminars for their most popular sessions: "Mental Health Conversations at Work", "Mental Fitness: A New Approach" and "Mental Fitness for Leaders.”



Hadleigh’s most popular keynote is a customisable one-hour presentation explaining the Mental Fitness metaphor and Resilience Agenda’s Mental Fitness Toolkit.



"Hadleigh is the best in the business when it comes to helping people understand mental health and resilience in common language that people can understand. He was great as the final speaker of our most recent event."

"Hadleigh spoke to over 200 of our store managers remotely and delivered a timely, relevant and important talk about how we can take responsibility for our mental health. The feedback from the team was very positive, and we are going to have him again."

Kate Mayers

HR Director, Best & Less

"Can I just say what a wonderful presentation. Hadleigh delivered to our CPA Global Congress in London and delivered a stunning presentation that people are still talking about a week later. He breaks down why we all need to be more aware of mental health and gives practical tools and strategies for making our lives and our workplaces better off.
