 Do you teach, speak, or train in organizations? Do you provide evidenced based research, presentations and practice on areas of leaders, compassion fatigue, personal wellness, neuroscience, positive psychology, mental health or workplace wellness?

The global workplace wellness summit provides a collaborative learning atmosphere where we learn from and with each other. If you are a consultant, speaker, trainer, researcher, or group facilitator with years of experience working with corporations, or have helped organizations implement workplace wellness systems, we want to hear your journey and lessons learned. Have you participated in a workplace wellness initiative that improved wellness at work and beyond? 

While we value learning from the experts,  we often find our greatest learning comes from someone else’s story about their journey. We will be offering 2 full-days of new ideas, stories, lessons learned, new research, ideas about what not to do and better ways to do what we are doing better, that we can take back to our workplaces to enhance the ability of our people to work and live well.

Has your workplace gone through the steps of creating and implementing a workplace wellness system? Are you willing to share your story with others? Are you working on cutting edge research? Do you have a process to help organizations improve workplace wellness that is unconventional?

If you are an organization that has instituted a workplace wellness system and would like to share lessons learned with other organizations, we would love to hear from you. The theme of this year’s summit will be: Staying Well at Work and Beyond!
