Stephen Whitton


Stephen Whitton is a Speaker, Social Entrepreneur, Influencer, Mental Health Warrior, and survivor who has been speaking up for mental health in masculine environments.

Stephen Whitton is the Founder of [M]enable – the global movement for mental health support in the Automotive Sector. After a successful career spanning 35 years in the industry, with numerous roles from Salesman to Executive Director, he is a renowned authority on employee well-being to achieve results.

[M]enable was created on the back of Stephen’s own struggles, with a clear purpose and mission – to change cultures in male dominated and performance driven businesses, enabling the Mental Health stigma to be removed. Wanting leaders to embrace the ethos that when people feel good about themselves, they perform better, Stephen’s mantra is “positive employee outcomes = positive customer outcomes = positive business outcomes”.

Leaving school without academic qualifications to pursue a career in teaching, Stephen did what any teenage, excitable and aspiring Super-hero would do – he became a Car Salesman. Working internationally across the industry and developing a strong presence in the sector, Stephen was always drawn back to training and development. He’s renowned for an expert knowledge of results-oriented business and the behaviours within them so using his extensive observations and anecdotes, he delivers thought leading talks, programmes, and workshop facilitation that have inspired 1000s of people in audiences across the globe.


Whether in person or virtually, Stephen will inspire audiences to take a fresh look at mental health – of their own and of the people they’re close to (in work or at home).

Through sharing his honest and raw story, Stephen hopes his open vulnerability will remind everyone that we ALL have mental health, just as we all have physical health. BUT, moreover, Stephen will gift the audience with pragmatic tools and tips they can use everyday in their lives.

Stephen Whitton can also talk about how he set up [M]enable and the benefits such networks can have within organisations.

Stephen is also a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and is an NLP Practitioner and licensed Business Practitioner.

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
