Cori delivered a genuine and honest talk on his Mental Health journey that was raw and blended in perfectly with his candid humour. It was a special and unique way to bring awareness to mental health and the importance of having the conversation for our staff with some laughs along the way.Jessica McKenna, Safety and Wellbeing Specialist, AA Insurance
