This thought-leadership conference will now be broadcast online during the first week of November, according to founder Beverley Le Cuirot.
‘Leaders in WellBeing – Re-imagined 2020’ will then celebrate the wellbeing-related activities of organisations and individuals including corporates, entrepreneurs, health and wellbeing practitioners, government bodies, schools, charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Mrs Le Cuirot, founder of Leaders in WellBeing and director of WellBeing World and WellBeing At Work, said: ‘We’ve been optimistic, but need to be realistic, and we’re not alone. Most, if not all, of the large-scale conferences in Jersey and the UK have postponed their events for this year and many have moved online.
‘We are very well aware there is little substitute for the experience of a live event and it takes special care and attention to create the same buzz with a virtual event. However, we feel that with some careful planning we can produce an even better event, more suited to the times we are living in.
‘Speakers, delegates, main sponsors HSBC and awards sponsors Rossborough Healthcare have all supported the move online, and together with technical partners Delta Events, are looking at innovative ways to stage this year’s event.’
The summit will be broadcast each day from 10am to 1pm, with replays for delegates, while the Expo will be reformatted and will run throughout. The awards presentation will also be held online on Friday 6 November from 4pm to 5pm. Attendance at the event will trigger a ‘membership-style’ participation for all delegates to entitle them to additional resources, including the conference’s featured book, RISE by Royston Guest, the NHS-approved mental-health app Thrive, and other materials.
Sue Fox, chief executive of main sponsors HSBC Channel Islands and Isle of Man, said that the importance of personal wellbeing could not be understated, whether in people’s professional or private lives.
‘We have a collective responsibility to lead our organisations to prioritise and promote wellbeing,’ she said.
