Emma Saccomani

Workplace Mental Health and Wellbeing Consultant/Facilitator

A learning and development professional with 25 years of experience delivering training in a range of settings Emma’s on a mission to get workplaces and communities addressing challenging topics and build the foundations of a mentally healthy workplace. Using the latest research she supports leaders to select appropriate evidence-based/informed training to upskill their workforce according to the needs of their role, and understands there’s no ‘one-size fits all. She promotes a wellbeing and recovery approach sharing ways to thrive, not ‘in spite of’, but because of our challenges so we can build resilience in an ever-changing world

A qualified Mental Health First Aid Instructor (Australia and England), Emma is also licenced to deliver the workplace specific i-act international program for Managing and Promoting Positive Mental Health and Wellbeing. In her mental health and wellbeing workshops, her pragmatic, down-to-earth and compassionate approach, enables participants to explore deeply uncomfortable topics, including suicide in a safe and more comfortable way. Emma carefully balances sensitive topics with the need to have fun whilst learning! Equally comfortable at the sharp end (stations, call centres, depots, head offices and porta-cabins!), as well as the boardroom, clients include Network Rail, Eurostar International, and construction organisations Volker Fitzpatrick and BAM Nutthall, Surrey local councils, and the charities sector (farming charity, Voluntary Services Overseas).

As a mental wellbeing speaker, she has engaged over 750 Network rail employees at their safety workshops and 250 Health and Safety professionals at the Berlin EHS Congress.

In her previous role as Learning & Development consultant at Eurostar, she provided bespoke and engaging solutions for over 1500 employees and managers including the Eurostar Essential Management Programme, accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management. In response to increased reporting of stress and assaults on customer-facing team members, she worked with the safety and station experts to design, launch and deliver a Resilience and Managing Conflict workshop which enabled participants to reflect on their roles, personal values and conflict styles and build on their coping strategies. Her down-to-earth, authentic and practical approach enabled them to safely express frustration, overcome some cynicism, and gain a sense of control and build a resilience toolkit.

She has carried out a broad range of volunteer work within the mental health field, including facilitating depression support groups at a UK Mental Health charity, witnessing and promoting the value of listening and peer support for recovery. In her trustee role for this charity, she ensured the voices of employees, volunteers and clients were heard, and as a key member of the leadership team took them through an immensely challenging period of change (involving addressing toxic behaviours) to ensure services on the ground and employees and volunteers could thrive and grow in a mentally healthy workplace environment.

As a mental health advisor and panel member of the Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, she made recommendations to senior leaders about how SSEN can support customers with additional requirements, particularly during power cuts, and help promote a culture of inclusion. On a working group with Surrey and Borders NHS trust she contributed to a system wide, ‘hands-on’ approach towards Suicide prevention and postvention with practical support and the needs of those impacted at the heart of decision-making.

She’s a corporate member of the Mental Health Coordinating Council in NSW and has attended conferences such as Suicide Prevention Australia and ‘Effective Interventions and Models for Refugee Trauma’ to keep-up-to-date with local initiatives, latest research and contribute to learnings.
