Year of the Mind will offer practical solutions for tackling the issues that affect us all. Guests will hear a 360-degree perspective on how to achieve and maintain good mental health. We will hear from the next generation of leaders and the seasoned change makers who are building sustainable programs now. The discussions will take place, the pitfalls will be brought to light, and those who attend will leave feeling more confident and equipped in their journey towards a powerful mental wealth plan.

The Organizers are happy to offer WLAO members a special limited time offer starting September 20: buy a ticket and get another seat for a friend, co-worker, associate for free!
