Caring For Your People
Prevention is not only cheaper than a cure but today’s employers want to show they have a culture of caring for their staff beyond salary alone. An Australian study by Medibank Private revealed that healthy employees are three times more productive than their unhealthy counterparts (May 2009).
We at A Healthy View know that while health and wellness is a serious business, being bored by it can be a turnoff. Our speaking engagements are as entertaining as they are educational, and it is this combination that makes them memorable and impactful, ensuring they improve personal and business performance alike.
In a New York Times article “ What Doctors Don’t Know About Nutrition”, the closing line sums up the wishes of today’s GP “Added Dr. Chauncey:
“You can’t just keep writing out script after script after script of new medications when diet is just as important as drugs or any other treatment a patient may be using.”

Presenteeism or Absenteeism?
Reducing the impact of “Presenteeism” can create healthier employees and improve your business’s bottom line. Presenteeism is the loss of productivity that occurs when employees come to work, but aren’t fully functioning because of an illness or injury. When compared to absenteeism, presenteeism is considerably less visible in the work place.
A Healthy View acknowledges that we are all busier than ever, leaving us with little time for thinking about the foundation of our good health: our nutrition.

How do you stay there physically, mentally and emotionally?

Michele, thank you for your wonderful presentation at Department of Defence. The presentation was fun, engaging and inspirational and it got EVERYONE talking about sugar and the importance of healthy eating, which is what it's all about... my team and I have already made changes.

Michele’s style creates a wonderfully inspiring and authentic connection with the audiences she shares her messages of nutrition with. She creates simple messages that resonate with children and adults, turning empirical data into practical daily actions. Changing behavioral patterns is the key to positive mental and physical health, and Michele ignites a conversation that empowers people to make true change without fuss, and I have personally experienced just how easy it has been to sustain this conversation and personal choices as part of our daily family routine.

Michele's healthy view on nutrition was a hit at Meeting on The Green this year. The feedback was overwhelming…even people who played golf and didn't attend her session were lining up to get her book. She really understands busy, working corporate people and how to educate on the benefits of nutrition in a light hearted yet important way. I would not hesitate on recommending Michele to any conference planner looking for a powerful, real take home message.
