Danielle Posa, Founder
Danielle is the founder of Workplace Wellbeing Advisors and Vice-Chair of the Global Wellness Institute’s Workplace Wellbeing Initiative. With 14+ years as a management consultant, Danielle has worked with organizations across a variety of industries, all over the world. She partners with executive teams to develop and implement long-term, culturally integrated wellbeing strategies. Danielle believes workplaces are vehicles for transforming people’s lives and she is on a mission to make wellbeing the primary measurement of success in society.
Danielle began her career at Gallup, where she worked with clients to measure and improve employee and customer engagement. While at Gallup, she was also assigned to Dr. Deepak Chopra as his liaison for Gallup’s global wellbeing research. She then went on to become the Director of Enterprise Solutions for Chopra Global, Deepak’s parent company, where she led the B2B wellbeing strategy, product/service development, and execution. Together, she and Deepak also designed and led a unique leadership course called Workplace Wellbeing and the Soul of Leadership to encourage leaders to make wellbeing a strategic priority in their organizations.
In addition to her advisory work, Danielle founded The Wellbeing Hacker, a website that provides research-based tools and programs that enhance people’s quality of life. Most notably, she developed The Legacy Builder Program, a powerful process that supports seasoned professionals’ transition into a purpose-driven, legacy-building career.
As a cancer survivor, Danielle is wildly passionate about spreading her wellbeing message. She started public speaking at the age of 15 when she shared her cancer story at a fundraiser for the Children’s Cancer Research Foundation. Since then, she has spoken on dozens of stages such as Sages and Scientists, Wine & Wishes (Make-A-Wish Foundation), ESTO (US Travel Association), Peer150, and was also a guest speaker for Deepak Chopra’s Executive MBA class, The Soul of Leadership, at Kellogg University.
On a more personal note, Danielle graduated from the University of Maryland with a double major in Marketing & International Business, is an international wanderer, lover of sports, an occasional piano player, and a proud mom of two young children, Giavanna and Nico. She was born and raised in New York with her three sisters, but now resides with her loving husband and children in Florida.
