Linda is committed to reducing the staggering rate of obesity in Australia and New Zealand and takes the message out into the corporate sector in the hope that adults will become role models for their children.
After working for corporate Australia for the last 25+ years, Linda walks the walk and talks the talk. She has been a shift worker for Qantas Airways, a Sales and Marketing Manager for a dairy company, a Workplace Trainer for a major Water Authority and a Franchise Sales Manager for a large Australian Hotel company, she has also run her own training and development business. Linda knows what it takes to be healthy at work, she knows how to stand out amongst the unhealthy eating patterns so prevalent in today’s corporate workplace. Linda is not afraid to be different. Linda uses employees themselves to uncover or remember what they already know – eat fresh fruit and vegetables for a healthy life, she also teaches employees to help each other, mentor each other and support each other.
Eating healthy at work and at home involves change. Linda is able to educate your staff on why they need to change, what to change, and how to go about it.
Always being passionate about food in general, Linda thoroughly enjoys training groups in corporate wellness workshops and lectures and is a popular trainer for small groups or as a guest speaker to large conferences.
Because he has led an exciting, adventurous life, Peter is an engaging speaker who appeals to most audiences. For workplaces that are predominated by males in their early 20s, 30s, mid 40s to mid 50s Peter is able to engage and create an atmosphere of trust and hope, both attributes needed for behavioural change in attitudes to do with health and food. Many attendees are able to identify with Peter as he talks about his own journey with health and wellness, and how he has improved his health, weight, stress management, productivity and lots more.
Peter is known for his blend of education and humour in transferring critical messages to men and women in the workplace about the food they consume. Peter has a singleness of purpose that is committed to bringing down the rate of obesity in Australia, and its associated diseases – starting at work.
Peter has walked the walk in a variety of exciting businesses, so knows the challenges of eating healthy food at work, especially when your job calls for a 4 am start or you are on a fly-in/fly-out structure with meals prepared by canteens or caterers.
