Topic: Fit for work, healthy for life
Speaker: John Verbi, Senior Facilitator, Inspirology
The Fit for Work, Healthy for Life presentation is all about energy, or perhaps the lack of it. Many clients seen, sadly have just enough energy to do things they have to do, and not enough left over to do things they should, or want to do. Fit for Work and Healthy for Life will explore the healthy lifestyle, what does that even mean and how does it cater for the ever increasing stressful and challenging lives we all face.
Date: Wednesday 22nd November
Time: Pre-dinner drinks, 6pm for 7pm start
Venue: Kent Hotel, 370 Rathdowne Street, Carlton North, VIC 3054
