Last week, my friend Corey Hirsch was back where it all started for him as our ICBA Wellness Ambassador.

Two years ago, he spoke to a group of leaders at Jacob Bros Construction about his mental health journey and our Wellness efforts. On Friday, he returned and spoke to 300 Jacob Bros employees.

In between, Corey has spoken to dozens of ICBA member companies, partner associations, and thousands of construction professionals about wellness and breaking through the stigma around mental health.

Corey is a former Vancouver Canuck goaltender and one of the most important voices in the fight to end mental stigma in male-dominated industries. He is an engaging speaker that educates, motivates, and inspires his audience. He gives hope to others struggling by showing vulnerability and letting people know they are not alone.

Need a speaker for your next corporate event? Want to make mental health a bigger priority onsite? Consider booking Corey to share his story with your team. Just send a note to to learn more.

Thanks for all you do, Corey! 

Each week, ICBA’s Jordan Bateman reflects on what we’ve learned as we participate in ICBA’s Workplace Wellness Program. ICBA’s Workplace Wellness Program is helping more than 90 companies and nearly 10,000 construction professionals better understand mental health. This program is free for all ICBA members – check out for details.
