Corporate Seminars

Dr. Espen Hjalmby and the team take health promotion seriously. In creating your ‘Life By Design’ workplace, we aim to:

  • Empower your workforce to live their ‘Life By Design’
  • Increase total productivity
  • Reduce absenteeism among your colleagues

Why Corporate Wellness?

Studies suggest that employees with poor overall health status are far more likely to be absent from work and are nine times more likely to have sick days compared to healthy employees.

Lifestyle stresses such as lack of physical activity, poor dietary habits, excess weight and psycho-social factors primarily contribute to these findings. Creating your ‘Life By Design’ workplace provides a complete solution to these growing concerns. By focusing 100% on the body’s underlying requirements for optimal health and function, the ‘Life By Design’ workplace program provides a systematic, step-by-step approach that is guaranteed to improve the health of your employees!

What are people saying?

I’ve been practicing as a medical doctor for 19 years and after hearing Espen speak I knew in my heart that it was time for a change.

Thank you Espen, I could not have done this without you!

We understand that employers are looking for immediate, meaningful solutions to the challenges presented by rising health care costs. Greater still, we recognize the chronic, indirect costs that result from absenteeism and decreased productivity in the workplace.

Gordon Norman MD

In line with our recent company quarterly goal of a healthier workplace, we invited Dr. Espen to visit our business and he spent a high powered 30-minute presentation at lunch time, presenting a hands-on, highly educational and entertaining insight into the importance of posture, movement and creating a healthier workplace. After the presentation, Dr. Espen then went one on one with the team on their workplace ergonomics, checked the seating and monitors. The changes have helped our team to be more relaxed and productive at work. Dr. Espen’s enthusiasm and energy is contagious. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their team’s health and wellbeing.

Both my family and I are living examples of this transformation! Thank you Espen, you have changed our lives!

Amber Hawken (Author, Speaker, and Illuminator)

I simply can’t put a price on what my team and i learned from Dr Espen presentation. To work my entire life without understanding the money mindset or designing my life and my business centered around my core values would be a tragedy.  I’m now extremely passionate about creating a life by design and I’m already seeing incredible results in life from my breakthrough

Kirsty Jurgensen Business Owner, PT and Coach

Tyler Tolman (Health Nutritionist)

Dr. Espen’s presentations and programs are absolutely mind blowing! He showed us how to evaluate each of the 8 areas of our lives as well as implement the strategies needed to design the life of our dreams! One of the greatest investments I have ever made! Espen’s presentations deliver, by far, the most extraordinary breakthroughs that I have ever experienced in a group environment (and I’ve seen a few). Espen’s empowerment strategies are delivered with such heart and passion from the stage, that each individual (who is serious about changing their life), is able to pick up the tools to transform into a happier, empowered and educated individual.
