I spent many years in the corporate world dealing with stress, long hours and struggling to keep a work/life balance. I understand how difficult it is to stay well when in an air-conditioned office, when everyone else around you is coming down with coughs and colds. Sometimes eating well and knowing what is good for us can be lost in the everyday busyness of life. This is why as a naturopath I am enthusiastic to work with corporate wellness programmes, as I firmly believe moving forward this will become an integral and necessary support mechanism in company life.
I have done a great deal of public speaking through out my corporate career and as a naturopath. I have a number of existing presentations already used for corporate seminars, but if you have a special topic in mind I will be able to create something for you. I generally give PowerPoint presentations suitable for employee education or for conferences as something new and interesting. See below the outline of existing seminars.
