Co-Founder and CEO, Unmind
Dr Nick Taylor is the Co-Founder and CEO of Unmind, a workplace mental health platform that provides clinically-backed tools and training to create healthier, happier more human organisations.
From a young age, Nick had a deep fascination with the human mind. This interest was further cemented while volunteering as a Samaritan and working as a Support Worker for the mental health charity, Mind. Nick chose to further pursue this interest, studying psychology at the University of Cardiff, before later gaining a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Sheffield and embarking on a long career with the National Health Service as a Clinical Psychologist.
It was while working in a leadership role for the NHS that Nick became interested in corporate wellness and how organisations can benefit by looking after their employees. Determined to implement a strategy that would enable the NHS to best support its workers, Nick realised that there was a clear gap in the market for a platform that would provide all organisations with the tools to do this. It was this belief in the importance of offering a proactive solution that led Nick to co-found Unmind in 2016.
Five years later, Unmind is a leading international workplace mental health platform which offers bite-sized exercises for everyday wellbeing, personalised assessments and customised programmes to help improve on specific areas such as stress, focus and sleep.
