"Jeremy Thomas is a complete original. His writing, like his life, is a whirlwind of brilliance, wonder and blunder, by turns hilarious and terrifying. Highly recommended" - Stephen Fry

“Fear and shame make the prison of mental illness in families worse. Jeremy's talks are important. They are compassionate, informative, honest and very funny; humanising what can be distressing for the sufferer and those around them. I wish I'd heard him speak as a young person.” Hermione Norris


"Jeremy is an engaging and entertaining speaker with a message that every HR department and every family in the nation should listen to" - Simon, Founder of YO! Sushi & YOTEL

"Jeremy transfixes his audience with a story that enthrals, engages and astounds.  He changes your understanding of mental health forever, conveying insights and techniques that build awareness and resilience. Unforgettable" - Dr Keith, R&D Vice President, Unilever 

"Jeremy Thomas is an outstandingly good speaker. Jeremy’s talks are practical, authentic, and ways in which we can all practice how to stay well - prevention is better than cure. He is sincere without ever being pious and fun without ever being flippant. I know his talks have helped quite a few people inside and outside my organisation and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others" - Audrey, Partner, C.Hoare & Co.

"The presentation we had with Jeremy covering mental wellbeing was excellent. Jeremy is knowledgeable, humorous and most importantly very sensitive to what can be a very difficult subject for some. The feedback from our employees has been fantastic, with so many saying the coping strategies recommended by Jeremy have helped them a great deal. I very much look forward to welcoming Jeremy back for further sessions" - Jo, HR Manager, HTL Group UK

"Working with Jeremy on raising mental health issues was, and continues to be, an outstanding experience. His story coupled with his practical guidance is a must for those who wish to personalise the importance of mental health with their workforce. Not only did Jeremy deliver his session in person but he was able to do so virtually without losing any impact. Thank you Jeremy and I look forward to working with you in the future" - Gary, Senior HSES Manager, Balfour Beaty

"We were lucky to have Jeremy talk to our staff as part of an awareness week around Men’s mental health. Jeremy took us on an emotional roller coaster and used humour to talk through his own honest, frank and informative experiences of mental ill-health. Jeremy’s advice on how to stay healthy was well received and brought hope for the recovery and management of mental illness. I Highly recommend his talks" - Francoise, ACAS Head of Mental Health and Wellbeing

"Directors UK is the organisation that represents all directors working with moving images in the UK. In the last few years we have begun to understand some of the pressures and issues facing out membership. From the most successful to newbies, directors take on great responsibility and are often under very real pressure. Directors UK decided to see what we could do to help. Inviting Jeremy to talk was our first step and he was, without any doubt, very successful. His mix of intense honesty, humour and knowledge makes his talk both accessible and important. The questions in the room and subsequent feedback made it clear he got through. Jeremy has first hand experience of what happens when things go badly wrong. He tells a story that helps others recognise the early symptoms and work out how to stay sane. Which is no small order." - Paul, Board Member, Directors UK
