As business meetings and events return to New Zealand, innovation relating to health and wellness is top of mind when planning for delegate learning, creative thinking, focus and wellbeing.

Soul Works offer a range of mental, physical and environmental solutions to address wellbeing. These can be fully customised to meet your conference or event needs.

SOUL WORKS

Workplace Wellbeing & Event Enhancement

We’re a passionate ensemble of wellness professionals who love to facilitate spaces that enhance well-being, connection and focus during conferences and events.
We bring the tools for wellness so that EVERYBODY can be at their optimal! Enhancing Mental Awareness, Human Connection, and Wellness. Soul Works ensures that your next business event is engaging and memorable.

As experienced well-being professionals; we are the backbone of ANY business occasion. We use a wide range of evidence-driven tools that enhance relaxation, connection and focus for your delegates and conference participants.

The excitement of conferences, new ideas, and new people can overwhelm us. Evidence shows that when our body is overstimulated, we struggle to form new brain pathways. Additionally, we are less likely to foster human connection or have feelings of happiness and well-being. Soul Works exists to bring people back to equilibrium so everyone can thrive at conferences.

Allow space for insight and reflection in one of our Reset Rooms, or have a Massage and ease your nerves through one of our guided Breathwork Facilitators or Yoga classes. Soul Works is a collection of highly skilled wellness specialists equipped with diverse expertise to suit your individual needs.

OUR OFFERING

Soul Works provides a range of wellness options that can be incorporated into a conference programme. Big or small, our aim is to create space where delegates, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and partners feel well and cared for.

YOGA & MOVEMENT

We understand that the excitement of conferences can be overwhelming, so we’ve incorporated massage therapists into our work. The combination of a busy schedule, and sitting down for extended periods, can cause stress in the body, especially the neck and shoulders. That’s why we have incorporated 8-10 minute chair massages for your neck and shoulders. We provide the
chairs and the massage specialists so that you can relax, reset and refocus.

WORKPLACE SOUL SOLUTIONS

Well-being is not just the absence of illness and disease. It is the combination of balancing the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social needs of the body. Well-being is vital and strongly linked to happiness and life satisfaction. In short, well-being could be described as how you feel about yourself and your life.

In addition to our conference offerings, Soul Works brings a range of WorkPlace Solutions that can be combined to create a customised well-rounded
employee wellness programme.

OUR PURPOSE

Soul Works exists to support business events and workplace health. For delegates, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and partners to feel well and cared for during business events. For teams in business environments. Human connection and engagement are paramount to the meeting and event experience. The science of wellness – specifically how our bodies react to the physical environments we inhabit – has long been overlooked, and is now deeply relevant.

WHY WELLBEING?

“Human connection and engagement are paramount to the meeting and event experience. And the science of wellness—specifically how our bodies react to the physical environments we inhabit—has long been overlooked, and is now deeply relevant.”
Michael Dominguez, president and CEO of ALHI.

Soul Works provides experiences for meeting attendees that foster a renewed sense of productivity – allowing them to enjoy a few minutes between or after meetings to disengage, relax and enjoy experiences that reset the senses. This allows delegates to feel more energized, balanced and focused.
