Legal Geek Conference 2018 – Fundraising for Mind

Legal Geek is supporting mental health charity Mind by putting mental health front and centre at our 2018 conference. Our keynote speaker George Biggar rowed the Atlantic last winter as part of a four-man crew in aid of Mind, raising £240,000 for the charity.

George’s mother, Anne, battled with depression every day of her adult life. Although a highly successful lawyer, Anne’s illness destroyed her marriage, and her life fell apart. Through will power and the support of friends and family, she built her life back up, re-training as a mental health and addiction counsellor and becoming a trustee of Mind.

Yet in January 2011, despite appearing happy and balanced, George’s mum lost her battle, depression had beaten her.

With your help, Legal Geek is raising money for Mind at the conference.

Who is George?

George Biggar is a Senior Associate for Taylor Wessing. On 12 December 2017, he and three friends – all amateur rowers – embarked on the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, a 3,000+ nautical mile row crossing the world’s second largest ocean. 29 days, 14 hours, and 34 minutes later they had completed their challenge in world record time: an incredible six days faster than the previous record.
