This episode is brought to you in part by The Alberta Blue Cross Wellness Summit, which happens on October 10th.

The Wellness Summit is a day to explore fresh perspectives and practices around wellness. This year the focus is on what it takes to create healthy workplace cultures where everyone thrives.

Supporting the health and wellness of employees is becoming a major consideration for many workplaces, and Alberta Blue Cross wants to connect the dots of what it takes to create healthier workplaces with happy people.

Among the speakers is Drew Dudley, whose TEDx talk on everyday leadership has been viewed millions of times — you might know it as the “lollipop moments” talk. He reminds us that we all have the power to improve each other’s lives.

Alberta Blue Cross has designed the summit so that you’re not just sitting and listening. You’ll have a chance to actively engage with the information, the speakers and other attendees and will come away with practical tools and evidence-based resources you can use, whether you’re a front-line worker or a C-suite executive.

The summit is at the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel on Oct. 10. Learn more at www.thewellnesssummit.ca
