The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) has launched access+INSIGHTS, a new series of monthly virtual video explorations of the most relevant topics impacting the US$3.7tr global wellness economy.

The forums, which take place the last Wednesday of each month, focus on timely wellness topics and are led by experts with insight into economic shifts and industry breakthroughs.

The access+INSIGHTS series is available exclusively to GWI Ambassadors, individuals who have pledged support of GWI’s global campaign to empower wellness worldwide, and have contributed at least US$1,000 (£746, €851) each year to the Institute.

The next access+INSIGHTS (30 May) takes a look at the wellness lifestyle real estate sector with GWI senior research fellows Katherine Johnston and Ophelia Yeung. As authors of the GWI’s inaugural 2018 Build Well to Live Well: Wellness Lifestyle Real Estate and Wellness Communities report, both are experts on the booming business of building for the health and wellness of communities and their residents.

“We’re thrilled to announce access+INSIGHTS, a series created exclusively for our dedicated GWI Ambassadors, giving them unprecedented access to evidence-based research, wellness experts and thought leaders, including provocative Q&A sessions,” said Susie Ellis, GWI chair and CEO.

Ellis added that previous access+INSIGHTS topics included Brain Optimisation, led by Devon White, co-founder of FIELD, a private membership club dedicated to optimising the minds and lives of its clients through cutting-edge neurotechnology, and Wellness Meets Happiness, led by the GWI’s VP of Research and Forecasting, Beth McGroarty.

“Being an Ambassador has given me a voice in the global campaign to empower wellness worldwide while supporting the indispensable research and analysis that the Global Wellness Institute provides,” said Desiree Watson, CEO of Wellness Interactive.

In addition to this series of global conversations, GWI Ambassadors are invited to participate in GWI press events and industry roundtables, including special events during the annual Global Wellness Summit, and also receive an edition of the “Monthly Barometer” written by renowned economist Thierry Malleret.
