    A Message from the Founder of GWWS and Our Host

    As founder of the integrated 9-dimensional Wellness Improvement System® (WIS®), and President of Interpersonal Wellness Services Inc., I believe in enhancing congruence between the brain, mindset, and relationships, for a multi-prong approach to workplace wellness.

    Interpersonal Wellness Services, Inc., is a leading corporate wellness education company offering services globally.  A culmination of 23 years of providing organizational development and respectful workplace services to organizations, coupled with ongoing changing dynamics in workplaces today has led to the Global Workplace Wellness Summit.

    I believe that workplace wellness is more than running a challenge a few times a year. While programs like yoga, aerobics and gym passes are essential, we need to cater to the other life dimensions for optimal wellness.

    An integrated wellness program offers strong education focus built around core wellness competencies. I'm excited to share our core wellness competencies with you as a way to solidify your wellness program and create the mindset shift leadership and employees need for success.

    I can’t wait to meet you at the GWWS 2020!
