Narayanan Vaidyanathan, Vice Chair

Narayanan works in policy development with a particular interest in the role of accountancy and finance in driving sustainable economies underpinned by skilled workforces.

He is a firm believer in the importance, and effectiveness, of positive mental health outcomes in driving successful interactions in work and life. He has worked with stakeholders across various elements of the diversity spectrum and has seen its benefits in guarding against group think. He continues to learn, including about areas that may not be immediately visible, such as neurodiversity. Having lived in Asia, Africa and Europe, and delivered services in more than twenty countries, he is passionate about the value of greater cross-cultural understanding.

MHF is executing its revised strategy centred on prevention which provides both exciting opportunities and new challenges. Narayanan brings an external perspective to critically evaluate and guide decision-making, considering lessons learned and best practice in the wider economy.
