When Does It Take Place?
Taking place in London on Wednesday 3rd May, this inspiring event for forward-thinking brands, startups, influencers and investors in the wellness industry, will be presented in partnership with international law firm Bird & Bird LLP.
Who Are The Panelists?
With invaluable insights into how to build a profitable and innovative business, the panelists will reveal how they got started, what it took to build their brands, and how they have scaled in local and international markets.
After retiring from professional sport, Lee Forster enjoyed a career as a commercial strategist, before he and business partner Charlie Turner left the corporate world to start Neat Nutrition.
Sold across Europe, the US and Asia, the brand’s range of proteins and supplements have risen to popularity thanks to their high-quality, natural ingredients, simple design and taste.
Positioning itself as a lifestyle brand that focuses on transparency and education, Neat Nutrition has fostered a strategic network of partnerships with high-end gyms and leisure companies. As well as producing an exclusive range of products that are stocked by Mr. Porter and Net-a- Porter across the globe, in January the brand launched its first Café in lululemon’s new European Flagship store on Regent Street.
Joining Forster, Ed Hawley, Co-Director of Floatworks; provider of the only dedicated floatation experience in London, is bringing mainstream attention to the life-changing benefits of floating.
Before leaving the corporate world to become a wellness entrepreneur, Hawley worked as a tech-outsourcing commercial lead for 10 years for a FTSE 100 company. However, realising his main passion lay in understanding the mind-body connection and its implications for holistic wellbeing he now plans to help others live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives.
Together with his business partner Chris Plowman, Hawley sees floating as a key development in the future of wellness and has ambitious plans to open 10 new float centres in the next 3 years.
Completing the incredible lineup, Inge Theron, Founder of FaceGym; the UK’s only gym studio for the face, has built and grown a revolutionary proposition into a wellness brand that now boasts 4 locations across London.
Drawing on her experience as spa columnist for the FT’s How To Spend It, and 4 years unearthing beauty secrets from around the world (both ancient and modern), the entrepreneur discovered a gap in the market for innovation in non-invasive skincare. And, through FaceGym, she is changing the way consumers think about anti-ageing.
