Our Topic

We all want to perform. To be our best when it matters most - in work and life. Yet in today's stress-filled, 24/7 world, we can feel unfocused, unmotivated and depleted. The Corporate Athlete is a science-based approach to sustainable behavior change that helps people expand their energy capacity for improved performance and resilience.

In this session, Jeff Thomson, Strategy & Integrated Services Consultant at Allstate Insurance Company, will provide an overview of Energy for Life, the capstone program within Allstate's Good Life initiative. Jeff will provide context on why and how Allstate is making this investment in its employees while also highlighting key concepts of the program that you can immediately apply. The session promises to be an informative and engaging experience for any individual and / or company looking to enhance their performance, wellbeing and resilience amidst the many demands of work and life.
