Dentons will be talking to Gail Porter, the TV personality, as part of a new series of events called The Big Blether in Scotland.

Hosted by Dentons partners Alison Bryce and Alison Weatherhead, Ms Porter will discuss the highs and lows of her life, her struggles with mental illness, motherhood and how she has harnessed her experiences to help others overcome adversity.

The first event in the series will be held virtually on 1 October at 9:30am and you can register for it here.

Ms Porter said: "I am excited to be joining Alison and Alison for The Big Blether event. Mental health and resilience are important topics particularly right now as people are struggling given the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic."

The series of events will feature speakers from all walks of life, who will share their stories, thoughts and opinions on important issues, including mental health and resilience.   

Alison Weatherhead, Employment partner at Dentons, said: "Statistics have shown a rise in the number of us struggling to juggle home and work life and an increase of cases of depression and feelings of isolation. We are here to support our clients as we navigate these challenging times."

Alison Bryce, Intellectual Property and Technology partner at Dentons, added: "These sessions will give people the chance to pause, learn from our speakers' insights and refocus, as well as to chat amongst supportive peers and ask questions in a comfortable space."
