“If you aren’t making a difference in other people’s lives. You shouldn’t be in business – it is that simple” Richard Branson

What Is a Sense of Purpose? A sense of purpose is whatever you believe in. It is your driving force, your motivation, and your guiding light to work towards a life that you think will satisfy you. Your life’s purpose is very closely linked to your sense of purpose.

In these times of change, it can be called: Disruptive Thinking, Critical Thinking, Workplace Intelligence, Increased Employee or Customer Engagement, Interface Design, Matrix Model …. the list goes on, but still returns to a Sense of Purpose.

There’s a new shift that suggests companies and their employees will have to start thinking in a different way when it comes to the way we work and live. This isn’t only because there are fewer of us to do more work, but because it is going to be occupied by different generations. This is especially true for jobs that require creative solutions, knowledge and innovation. Employees in these fields fight to reach the ideal balance with set patterns, when in fact they would benefit significantly from breaking the pattern and instead of following a system based on the individual tasks and their own energy levels. To get as much as possible out of our human resources, it is vital that we put the work-life balance in focus.

15.00 – 16.00 Being Part of the Blue Wellness Movement – Kent Richards – Hong Kong (Corporate Operations Director – Six Senses Spa Group)

You are familiar with the green beauty movement that was pioneered by small, independent brands as it steadily emerged over the past three decades. Green beauty is generally defined as beauty products that are plant-based, organic-focused, and ethically sourced. Over the past few years, green beauty has gone more mainstream. But have you heard of Blue Beauty? Businesses have to “go blue,” which meana that they were going to be held accountable by consumers to surpass being green and sustainable and forge new ways to use their businesses to make a positive impact on the environment, not just minimize their impact on it.

The term “Bullish” is used because of the way a Bull attacks, moving his horns and head upwards and higher. So the price will rise.. A bearish market means that the price is going down and falling. So is the Spa Market currently and into the future: Bullish or Bearish.

12.30 – 13.00 Future Proofing – Increasing profitability and wellness ROI -Marisa Dimitriadis (Founder and Managing Director – The Spa Consultants)

It takes a lot to keep an organization running efficiently, ask any spa owner or manager, to produce better outcomes, profit margins and have the best chance at making the most of well-suited investments. Allowing money or time to slip through the cracks or go to waste can quickly deter progress on any initiative. Of course, this is all easier said than done. Especially when it comes to abstract, highly impactful initiatives like an employee wellness program or marketing programs, it can be challenging to assess its value and ensure the investment is worth it.

15.15 – 16.00 SENSE OF PURPOSE & BELONGING – Leona Tousaint (Co Founder | COO at Tousca, Global Ambassador Women in Tech Conference)

In social psychology, the need to belong is an intrinsic motivation to affiliate with others and be socially accepted.  In Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, belongingness is part of one of his major needs that motivate human behaviour.  By belonging to a group, we feel as if we are a part of something bigger and more important than ourselves, and belonging the to the famed group of spa entrepreneurs is even more important.
