There are many words we think of when we look back on the first half of 2020. Uncertainty, change, disruption - but there's one word used most in the world of work and conferences... virtual.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the virtual, National Wellness Institute's (NWI) 45th Annual National Wellness Conference.
The conference was comprised of 3 parts:
1. Key-note speakers - each introduced by a wellness expert that hyped everyone up
2. breakout sessions - recorded sessions with loads of continuing education content with the ability to ask the presenter questions
3. A ‘happiness hour’ to end each day
The conference itself ran through Zoom, with an online learning portal to access to the presentations, speaker handouts, program guide, conference resources, virtual tote-bag and additional recorded content.
In short, I came out of the past two days motivated, inspired, excited and fulfilled with a long list of action items that I am still trying to wrap my head around (and I haven’t even dove in to the recorded sessions yet!).
I have felt this way after attending the previous two years of National Wellness Conference and this year is no different attending virtually.
Thank you, NWI for capturing that spirit and applying it to a virtual setting. The speakers were all amazing and timely. The chat feature amplified the experience. The small group breakouts were fun, personal and connecting.
