A dynamic international speaker who moved attendees with her inspiring talk at American Spa’s debut Women in Wellness Leadership Conference in New York City, entrepreneur and author Jen Groover is back to keynote the West Coast Women in Wellness Leadership Conference. In a session titled, “The More Method: The Simple Formula to Get More of Everything You Desire in Life,” Groover will share how you can identify the beliefs, fears, and emotions that are holding you back from achieving your goals and maximizing your potential. Based on her soon-to-be-released book with the same name, Groover will lead a compelling session that helps you identify and use emotions to reach your goals more effectively. In addition, she will reveal how to create deeper, more trusting relationships with people to help you collaborate, sell, manage, and create support teams for greater overall life success, fulfillment, and innovation.
Navigating a successful career path in today’s constantly evolving workplace poses numerous challenges. Wanting to help women find the path that’s right for them is what spurred Lauren McGoodwin to create Career Contessa, a career site built exclusively for women to help them cultivate successful and rewarding careers through expert advice, videos, one-on-one mentoring, online skills-based courses and resources, and a curated job board. In a session titled, “Three Ways to Leverage Your Strengths at Work,” McGoodwin will reveal how to determine your greatest assets and use them to your advantage to advance your career or grow your business.
Ariane Resnick, author of How to Be Well When You’re Not, will lead an interactive workshop to enhance inclusivity and accessibility within the wellness industry, which can sometimes be perceived as inaccessible with undue focus on designer athletic wear, pseudoscience-based cleanses, and the perfect Instagrammable avocado toast or yoga pose. In a session titled, “Healing the Healers,” Resnick will share simple solutions that can help you shift focus back to what matters, increasing you and your clients’ overall wellbeing.
An innovator in the global wellness industry, Diana Stobo is an expert and trusted voice on a host of subjects, including digestive health, food as a modality for change, hormone balance, sex, aging well, weight management, wellness travel, and more. She is a classically trained chef, nutrition expert, and an early pioneer in the raw food movement. Stobo has coached thousands of people back to good health throughout her years as a health coach and healer. She is known for her ability to create tools and practices that empower and facilitate transformation and to help foster freedom and empowerment in people’s lives. In a talk titled, “Harness the Power of Your Emotions for Success,” she will reveal how emotions can be used to propel you forward as opposed to limiting growth.
