How can we help your business?
We can come to your business and teach your staff about their physical and mental health and the choices they can make to improve both. Fiona is uniquely qualified in Nutrition, Counselling and Coaching which gives a broad range of health related topics that she can present. Fiona is also very relatable and very passionate and “excitable” during her talks, preferring to have a bit of fun during presentations to keep everyone awake and interested on what could otherwise be “dry” topics. She does not believe in “preaching at” people preferring to inspire them to make the changes that are right for them.

The importance of Workplace Wellbeing
Australians spend about one third of their lives at work, so what they do at work to maintain their health is a major influence on overall health and risk of developing lifestyle-related chronic disease such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Organisations that promote health and wellness are more likely to retain staff within 12 months.1
