REBA Wellbeing Congress 2024

We're excited to confirm this year's keynote speakers:

The opening keynote session at this year's event will explore why we must focus on healthy ageing to create a resilient multigenerational workforce. An ageing workforce and rising retirement age means long-term brain and body health needs to become a top priority for employers – with a shift to focusing on resilience, prevention and effective and informed self-care.

Join chartered psychologist and expert in brain health and nutrition, Kimberley Wilson, to get ahead of the global population health trends and risks that are coming over the horizon. Compared to other risk factors such as genetics, life and early life experiences, nutrition is increasingly becoming an accessible and amenable intervention that can positively impact and support the healthy ageing and emotional wellbeing of your workforce.

Drawing on leading-edge thinking and latest research, Kimberly reveals how diet and nutrition quality play a critical and significant role in mitigating health risks and supporting: 

  • Stress resilience
  • Attention, memory performance, cognitive flexibility and processing speed
  • Healthy brain ageing and protecting neurological longevity

Known for her charismatic and engaging on-screen presence, BAFTA award-winning television presenter, radio personality and journalist Claudia Winkleman will bring her quick wit to the REBA Wellbeing Congress closing keynote interview. The Strictly Come Dancing and The Traitors host will join Debi O’Donovan on the sofa to talk about life, work and wellbeing following her recent decision to leave Radio 2 to spend more time with the family.
