Advisory Board

  • Our advisory board members represent a broad cross-section of benefits/workplace health stakeholders. They volunteer their valuable time to develop our season agendas and secure seasoned presenters who are willing to share their expertise and insight into the private healthcare sector. Our advisory board members meet two to three times in preparation for our season, review feedback from attendees, input from sponsors and identify opportunities to bring new insights for our attendees.
