Talk Description

1 in 4 people experience a mental health problem every year. In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week* 
We spend most of our waking hours with work colleagues, and the stats suggest at some point, you or a member of your team will go through a mental health problem.

Christopher's profile'


Christopher Chant is a determined and passionate test professional with experience across multiple domains. He has learned to embrace all parts of the development lifecycle as learning opportunities: working in business analysis, development, testing and coaching roles in an attempt to help teams grow and deliver. These days Christopher is looking at ways that the Satir Model and Cynefin can be used to aid teams and organisations make safe changes. When not testing, Christopher spends his time running (not often enough), bouldering, travelling all over the country to watch Nottingham Forest F.C. lose (occasionally they win), jealously looking at other people's dogs and playing board games.
