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

Season 1
“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.  Health to Wealth: a podcast from Accor, produced by Purposeful Podcasts and hosted by Anni Hood from Well Intelligence. If you want to know more about Health to Wealth by Accor and join our community of thought leaders please go to healthtowealthbyaccor.com If you want to learn more about Accor please go to https://group.accor.com/

Ali Parsa: Telemedicine, A Booster For Healthcare Access

Season 1
“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.Health to Wealth: a podcast from Accor, produced by Purposeful Podcasts and hosted by Anni Hood from Well Intelligence. If you want to know more about Health to Wealth by Accor and join our community of thought leaders please go to healthtowealthbyaccor.com If you want to learn more about Accor please go to https://group.accor.com/
