Iceland, Women in Leadership and a Mental Health Service Start-up - We talk with Helga Vigfusdottir

Iceland, Women in Leadership and a Mental Health Service Start-up - We talk with Helga Vigfusdottir

April 1, 2021

 

This week we meet Helga Vigfusdottir,  Helga is a Social Entrepreneur based in Iceland, having been previously a Politician and Social Advocate there.

Helga talks about Women in Leadership and why Iceland leads the world in this area.  She talks about the Services, Legal Framework and Culture change that has made Iceland Number One in this area.

Previously, having been elected to the Reykjavik City Council she advocated for better services for women and children in different areas including Mental Health. 

From her experiences there Helga decided to found KaraConnect, which is a SaaS Platform to enable Therapists to deliver services online to clients with full confidentiality as well as meeting GDPR requirements.

She says: “During my time in politics & at the Department of Education in Iceland, I observed real difficulties in patients reaching therapy, due to geography, budgets and the high cost of therapists. This is why I started Kara – to enable any type of face to face therapy, both within clinics that want to scale, and within municipalities and companies. This not only allows patients to quickly and easily access the right kind of help they need but also increase the market that therapists can access.”

Helga is a great advocate for what she does and is now expanding Kara from Iceland and into Ireland and eventually the UK.

Her story is very compelling and shows how Helga and her team are making a difference and breaking new ground in an innovative way.

Also, she plays out on a stunning piece of Icelandic music.

Lochlann Scott is an innovative Social Entrepreneur and founder / CEO of HelpLink Mental Health Charity -

March 23, 2021

Lochlann Scott is an innovative Social Entrepreneur and Founder and CEO of HelpLink, a mental health charity.

Lochlann has a background in helping people with mental health problems and he founded HelpLink, mainly out of his own experiences in the West of Ireland.

One  of the groups where he is helping people to address their own mental health problems is in the Irish Diaspora or Irish emigrants.

He also can help out Corporates with their EAP programs on an practical Pay-as-you-Go basis.

He has good advice on how to recognise if Covid is affecting your own relationships.

This is a little different for us but is very pertinent to Innovation in a different context and you will realise how he is helping to make things better for people.

What I found about Lochlann is that he is truly innovative in the delivery of services and in the client groups he is helps, I think you’ll agree when you hear his story.

Denis Goodbody - Copywriter, Author and Broadcaster talks about getting the Business Message Write!

Denis Goodbody - Copywriter, Author and Broadcaster talks about getting the Business Message Write!

February 19, 2021

On the Podcast this week is a genuine Renaissance Man, Denis Goodbody.  Denis has been in marketing and advertising for all of his career but even that doesn’t define him.

He has a great deal of skill in working with businesses to ensure that the right message is delivered to their customers in an interesting  or creative way.  It isn’t necessarily just for Businesses, it could be a charity or a politician.

I think there is a lot that B2B businesses can learn from this approach which has been pioneered in B2C Business.

Apart from that, Denis is an author and a Radio Broadcaster, producing his own show on Dublin City FM for the last ten plus years.  He has also written a book on Salesmanship and selling.

He’s a great guest with a refreshing take on Marketing Communications and many other things.

As you might expect, he plays out on a unique song.
