When Ben Akers's childhood best friend, Steve Yates, took his own life in 2014, he needed to do something. He created a documentary called “Steve” and from that a male mental fitness movement, Talk Club. He explains how six words can save a life.

Ben Akers is a writer, director, problem-solver and male mental fitness campaigner. For 20 years, he has worked at some of the world’s top advertising agencies, both in the UK and Sydney. He then decided to use his 'evil' powers for good, and he joined the environmental and sustainability revolution. He now only works on projects that are good for the world. Ben lives in Bristol with his wife and three children.
