    DJing In Mind: The Power of Speaking Up When We’re Suffering


    Recognised as one of the UK's leading mental health activists, Dan will be joining us at the 2022 Pro Mobile Conference to share his full story and to ignite a conversation around mental health. He’ll encourage us to think about what we can all be doing to prioritise our own mental-wellbeing as professional DJs. We all deserve to have the courage, support and safe space to speak up when we’re suffering, Dan will help us to create this at the conference. Delivered with energy, passion and real clarity for the world Dan has dedicated his life to creating, this isn’t to be missed!


    Key Topics:

    • The power of vulnerability and speaking up when we’re suffering
    • The power of putting ourselves first when we need to
    • Shutting out the noise to focus on what really matters most
    • Why we’re all suffering with something
    • Why we’re all on the journey together

    Mental-Wellbeing Workshop


    Alongside his live keynote talk, Dan will be delivering two powerful workshop sessions. In an interactive small group environment, Dan will discuss what really matters most, why applying simplicity to everything we do as professional DJs can be game-changing for our mental wellbeing, and why ‘starting at the end’ will take the pressures off where we are now - ultimately leaving you feeling empowered to ‘own your mental health as you’ve never done before’.
