    Damien Perrot and Yann Le Floc’h: Vivatech Highlights Power Of New Thinking

    Damien Perrot and Yann Le Floc’h: Vivatech Highlights Power Of New Thinking

    “Wellbeing needs to be integrated in every innovation”
    Damien Perrot is the Global Head of Design and Innovation at Accor, with overall responsibility for inventing new products and services throughout the Group. Yann Le Floc’h is a seasoned designer who is also the CEO and Co-founder of Stairwage – the company chosen as the winner of the Health to Wealth Vivatech Challenge.
    In this episode of Health To Wealth, Damien and Yann discuss the role of wellbeing in developing new innovations, and especially the part that it played in creating Stairwage, an app that allows employees to have access to their salary before the end of the month. Damien explains that wellness plays a central role in all Accor’s innovation activity. As an example he cites hotelF1 the low-budget chain which offers access to those who have never been able to afford a hotel previously. He talks about other exciting start-ups such as Orbisk, which uses AI to analyse restaurant waste, and Glowee, which creates lighting from microbes, and their potential to improve wellbeing among employees and customers. Yann, meanwhile, explains how he came to invent Stairwage, and how it improves the financial wellbeing among a company’s employees by enabling them to absorb shocks, avoid debt, and be paid fairly. You’ll hear that Stairwage was chosen for the award above all for the passion of the team behind it.

    Emlyn Brown: Well-being In Under 10, 000 Steps

    Emlyn Brown: Well-being In Under 10, 000 Steps

    “80% of our guests seek daily to improve their health and wellbeing.”
    Emlyn Brown is the global vice president for Well-Being at Accor, and he and his team are responsible for launching the Health to Wealth programme – including this podcast series. Emlyn has vast experience in the hospitality sector, running health clubs and spa operations across Europe, Asia and the Middle East. In his current role, he’s responsible for integrating well-being throughout customer journeys in all Accor brands and making wellness rise to the top of the company’s agenda. 
     
    In this episode of Health To Wealth, Emlyn explains why Accor decided to commission the podcast series and how it is intended to help democratise the notion of wellness, and take it from an exclusive aspiration to one that everyone can engage with. He reflects on the holistic nature of wellness, touching the planet, society and the individual, and the interconnectedness of all the different dimensions of wellbeing, from technology to health, fitness and nutrition. Emlyn picks out some of his favourite moments from the series, and some of the key learnings, such as the importance of moving to a preventative health culture, the value that can be generated through measuring well-being, and the imperative for organisations of every kind to cater for well-being among employees and other stakeholders – especially with younger generations. And lastly, he talks about the power of well-being to transform – whether that be at an individual or company level.

    Manuel Muniz: Turning the Digital Tide

    Manuel Muniz: Turning the Digital Tide

    “One of the toughest things to automate is human interaction.”
    Manuel Muniz is one of Spain’s stellar thinkers and a former Government minister whose key perspective on well-being is the rapid advance of technology and the potential that brings to shape our lives for better or worse. Strategically directed, technology offers education, knowledge and connection; unconstrained, tech too often spells privacy infringement, loss of liberty, exclusion and wealth inequality.
    In this episode of Health to Wealth, Manuel outlines how the shaping of public policy can mitigate the risk of negative impact on individual well-being whilst positively influencing society. Along the way you’ll hear his thoughts on democracy, responsibility and the power of empathy in leadership.

    Olaf Blanke: Neuroscience Delivers A Sense Of Self

    Olaf Blanke: Neuroscience Delivers A Sense Of Self

    “If people are out of body they feel less pain.”
    Olaf Blanke is a neuroscientist whose specialist area is the intersection of mind and body. Much of his work is about how that our brain perceives our body, and how this can be manipulated in different ways. His work involves applying this knowledge in areas ranging from prosthetics to meditation. 
    In this episode of Health To Wealth, Olaf explains the idea of self-consciousness as a bodily perception that is generated by different parts of the brain, and how this can in particular circumstances lead to phenomena such as phantom limb sensations and out of body experiences. He then goes on to describe how you can manipulate this sense of self by, for example, using haptic – touch – technology to enhance meditation. In this process, you’re transported to an environment that facilitates deeper and more rewarding meditative states. Some of the techniques can also be used to alleviate pain and stress, says Olaf. Avatars experienced through touch rather than seen are another exciting possibility.

    Ali Parsa: Telemedicine, A Booster For Healthcare Access

    Ali Parsa: Telemedicine, A Booster For Healthcare Access

    “Cultural shift is the most fundamental part of using any technology”
    Ali Parsa founded digital health company Babylon in 2013 with a simple mission: to make access to a doctor available to anyone with a mobile phone. Babylon has since floated on the Nasdaq stock market and become involved in important partnerships ranging from the UK’s NHS to the healthcare system in Rwanda. And during the Covid pandemic, one of Babylon’s cornerstone ideas was put to the test, as many people spoke to their doctor on a video call for the first time. 
    In this episode of Health To Wealth, Ali explains that Babylon’s approach to providing healthcare today involves drawing on the vast amount of online information available, and automating diagnosis as well as direct interaction with physicians. The true revolution, he says, will come through preventative healthcare that will be tailored for the individual by systematically collecting and analysing their health data. What’s needed, says Ali, is a re-think whereby doctors are paid for keeping people healthy rather than simply treating them when they are sick. Technology may never be able to provide the personal touch of a human, but it can transform global access to good health.

    Kate Cook: Super Powered Through Strategic Nutrition

    “Avoid things that are sweet, fluffy and white.”
    Kate Cook is an expert on nutrition and the role it plays in well-being. She helps individuals and companies to boost their health and performance through being knowledgeable and mindful about the foods they consume.
    In this podcast, you’ll hear about Kate’s ‘North Star of nutrition’: balancing hormones rather than calories; and that controlling blood sugar level is the key to maintaining your energy levels so you can live life to the full. Companies that place importance on their employees’ nutrition, she says, will see the results in greater engagement and productivity.
