#40: How To Humanise The Workplace with Vivian Acquah

This is the 40th episode of the Mind Takeaway Podcast!

We speak to Vivian Acquah a workplace wellness advocate and we explore the holistic way of sustainable employability, called workplace wellness.

For her, this is the way to work on a healthy culture at work. Vivian advises managers and companies on how to keep their team members healthy, happy, and safe.

Becoming a mother inspired Vivian to shift from being a Finance/ IT consultant to becoming a workplace wellness advocate.

She made a promise to her son to help make the world a sustainable place by advocating for a healthy workplace where people can thrive.

Vivian is also a founder of Amplify DEI Summit, where you can learn all about Diversity, Equity & Inclusion from 60+ international experts. And, we have three 16 days all-access tickets to give away.

The first three people to send us the answer to Mira's question which you can hear when listening to the podcast will receive a ticket.
