Hi, I'm Lauren.

My vision is to inspire and educate business leaders to find the sweet spot between wellbeing and productivity, creating positive, energised workplaces, where people thrive.

If you're concerned about poor staff wellbeing, low engagement, absenteeism or staff turnover affecting your organisation's success, I'm here to help.

Lauren Parsons Wellbeing Specialist - Author of real food less fuss

I combine my background in wellness and coaching, with a business degree and over 20 years experience, giving me unique insights to help organisations boost their productivity and profits by creating a workplace culture that supports positive, healthy and energised staff.

I help HR and leadership teams feel confident they're doing all they can to help their business thrive by creating tailored, science-based workplace wellness programmes, and delivering team training and leadership development to create lasting change.

To find out more about how I can help your team thrive, let's arrange a time to chat.
