Diverse speaker lineup announced for Global Wellness Summit
01 Oct 2015 . BY Jane Kitchen
Keynote speaker Dr. Deepak Chopra heads up a list of high-profile presenters
The Global Wellness Summit, set to take place 13-15 November at The St. Regis Mexico City, has announced key elements of its 9th annual conference agenda.

Keynote speaker Dr Deepak Chopra heads up a list of high-profile presenters which includes executives from companies as diverse as Cirque du Soleil and Zappos; Mexico City’s Ministers of Tourism and Health; and panelists from renowned organisations such as Johnson & Johnson, the Mayo Clinic, Duke Integrative Medicine and Harvard Chan School of Public Health.

In addition, top findings from the Global Wellness Institute’s major research report on the Future of Workplace Wellness will be presented.

This year’s inclusive theme, “Building a Well World,” will attract attendees from more than 40 countries and provide a comprehensive look at how the dramatic growth of the US$3.4tn (€2.6tn, £2.1tn) wellness sector is transforming personal and professional lives – and what the outlook is for the future.

In addition to Dr Deepak Chopra, delegates will hear from:

Agapi Stassinopoulos, sought-after speaker and best-selling author, who will share her wisdom on the main stage, as well as moderate two “Thrive” workshops at the Summit

• Louie Schwartzberg, filmmaker and founder of Moving Art, whose TED talks have attracted over 47 million views, will share a world premiere of his film series, Gratitude Revealed, later to be featured on Oprah.com

• Nerio Alessandri, founder of Technogym and the non-profit Wellness Foundation, will share his passion for research and education that fuels a healthy lifestyle

• Martin Boudreau, Cirque du Soleil’s president of Parks and Immersive Content, discussing the process of innovation and the company’s new interactive destinations

• Maggie Hsu, chief of staff to Tony Hsieh, CEO of online retailer Zappos.com, will describe what it’s like to be her own boss, as Zappos adapts “holacracy,” the company’s new management structure

• Thierry Malleret, co-founder of The Monthly Barometer, will share his analysis of a world where wellness may become mandatory, and what that means for the global economy

• Samer Hamadeh, founder and CEO of Zeel USA, will present his disruptive wellness model: zeel.com - the “Uber of Massage”

• Gina Diez Barroso, president and CEO of Grupo Diarq, will speak on the emerging importance of creativity in business and how that convergence is impacting business everywhere

Giselle Fernandez, a five-time Emmy award winning journalist and Mexico native, will emcee this year’s event. Fernandez brings her love of wellness and deep journalistic experience, including interviews with global leaders like Carlos Slim, Fidel Castro, Henry Kissinger and President Bill Clinton, to the Summit’s stage.

An extensive number of panels and workshops will be presented on a wide-ranging array of topics, including spa, hospitality, technology, diet and nutrition, how to attract investment, wellness communities and residences, as well as new conceptual distinctions being made between “wellness” and “wellbeing.”

New for 2015 is a focus on “clinical wellness,” with panelists taking a look at how medical treatment and wellness modalities can better co-exist. Doctors from world-renowned institutions like the Mayo Clinic and Duke Integrative Medicine will join the debate with Scientific American VP, Global Media Alliances, Jeremy Abbate, moderating. Panels on the future of, and current innovations in, workplace wellness will include insight from top organisations like Johnson & Johnson and the Mayo Clinic.

Both the Minister of Tourism, Mr. Miquel Torruco Marqués, and Minister of Health, Dr. José Armando Ahued Ortega, will share their unique perspectives on achieving wellness in an increasingly urbanised world; along with special presentations on wellness modalities unique to Mexico, including the indigenous temazcal treatment, and how these treatments can galvanise wellness tourism. In addition, Jeanene Bluhm, co-founder and creator of Mexico’s Thomas Jefferson Institute, will present on putting wellness at the centre of education.

The 7th annual Student Challenge, a competition between international universities to create a spa resort/wellness concept of the future, will see two schools competing: Universidad Anáhuac México Norte (Mexico) and the University of Nevada Las Vegas (USA).

The Summit is also known for its networking and themed gala events. This year, delegates will have a chance to experience the brand new Design and Film School, CENTRO, as well as the famous Palacio de Bellas Artes.
