Our talks and workshops include:
Critical to the success of an organization, mindfulness cultivates presence, productivity and resilience in times of stress. Discover how mindful leaders can boost their ability to engage and inspire their teams, and mindful leaders can strengthen their resilience.
Stress has become a huge challenge for leaders and employees. While some stress is natural, prolonged stress can cause chronic and severe illness. Learn about the different phases of stress, the long-term risks, and impactful ways to support the body and mind.
In the workplace, sleep deprivation can lead to poor communication, reduced performance and greater risk-taking. Discover sleep strategies to support workplace performance, and strengthen body, mind and emotions.
Key to personal resilience is a healthy diet. A poor diet can cost organisations up to 20% in lost productivity, global researchers warn. Learn how a tailored healthy diet can boost resilience and empower employees to thrive in the workplace.
Everybody shows evidence of a build-up of toxins. Particularly in Hong Kong, this build-up impacts physical and mental wellbeing, cognitive function and energy levels. Learn how to reduce the toxin load and implement detox tools to boost resilience and revitalize the body and mind.
Long periods of sitting increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, chronic back pain and osteo-related diseases. Learn the importance of movement at work and tips to support posture, energy levels, health, and performance.
- Gut & Brain
Brain health is impacted by what goes on inside the gut, researchers advise. Poor gut health has been linked to headaches, poor concentration, chronic fatigue, low moods and more. Learn how to repair the gut and restore the body’s balance through optimal diet and nutrition.
- Mental Health (English and Chinese)
One in six Hong Kongers suffer from mental health issues. 90% want better support at work. Employers note the benefits of workplace mental health policies on staff morale, retention and productivity. Learn the importance of mental health and effective support strategies.
As women juggle multiple roles and responsibilities, self-care falls to the wayside. Burnout, depression, heart conditions and more are on the rise. Learn about Superwomen’s characteristics and health risks, and proven strategies to support their success.
Men face pressure to succeed at work and in life with no stop overs. They’re at risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, depression and insomnia. Discover the importance of men’s health and techniques to help them thrive in the workplace.
- The Superhero Syndrome / Superhero Summer Series
Supermen and Superwomen face unique challenges and the risks to their health cannot be ignored. Discover the link between wellness and workplace success, and strategies to ensure Superheroes stay the course.
- Stress Resilience at Work
This seminar will look at the new neuroscience of stress resilience and mindfulness, and specifically how they apply to organizational life, leadership and communication. The seminar will include an overview of most common stress triggers from a neurological perspective (based on David Rock’s SCARF model). Attendees will emerge with a deeper understanding how to develop their own stress resilience, and help their colleagues and teams do the same.
- Leading Teams for Performance and Impact
This seminar explores the challenges of structuring and leading teams and meetings. Many teams are under-designed and under-led, with complex dynamics around membership, time management, and authority. This seminar addresses these challenges and offers practical interventions, incorporating insights from organizational psychology and group relations theory. Attendees will emerge with actionable plans for designing and enabling better teams and meetings, as well as fostering a healthier workplace culture.
- Ethnicity and Gender in Leadership
This seminar will explore the roles of ethnicity and gender in leadership and leadership development. Several lenses will be introduced, including implicit leadership theory, Sue & Sue’s racial/cultural identity development models, and unconscious bias. Attendees will emerge with a deeper understanding of both agent and target group identity in the workplace, and a development plan for overcoming leadership biases and preferences.
Tailored to your needs, our programmes are available in engaging, high-impact formats including in-person and online presentations, workshops, as well as half- and full-day retreats. Our programmes are uniquely led by industry-renowned doctors, wellness practitioners and executive coaches.

“Dr. Perch came to our office to give our female lawyers a talk on wellness. Dr. Perch knows exactly the various challenges and issues professional women face. Her talk prompted us to think about the little things we are doing on a daily basis that could be improved or avoided, and more importantly, raised the awareness among us. Her tips and suggestions are very practical so it’s easy to make improvements both in the office and at home.”
