Danielle has 13+ years of experience in employee engagement, wellbeing, leadership development & business consulting. She is a Workplace Wellbeing Advisor to organizations all over the world, including Fortune 500s – working with senior-level executives to assist them in designing long-term wellbeing strategies that are woven into the fabric of the culture.
She is also the Vice-Chair of the Global Wellness Institute’s Workplace Wellbeing Initiative. And while Danielle’s focus is on improving workplaces, her bigger mission involves making wellbeing the primary measurement of success in society.
Danielle started her career at Gallup as a management consultant. Her key responsibilities included managing client relationships, and advising them on how to improve employee/customer engagement and wellbeing, leverage talent, and create high-performing workplaces. Danielle also served as the liaison between Gallup and Gallup Senior Scientist Deepak Chopra, where together they focused on exposing Gallup’s wellbeing research to the world. In addition, her efforts encouraged corporate and city leaders to broaden their focus from traditional metrics such as GDP to incorporate measures that reflect the quality of life of the people they lead and influence.
Since Danielle was 19, she has participated in various, highly intensive and globally recognized self-development and leadership programs. She then coached and head-coached these leadership programs, helping individuals live life powerfully and effectively. On her own time, she has extensively studied various bodies of knowledge on human nature including behavioral science and economics, ontology and phenomenology, neuroscience, consciousness, and of course wellbeing/happiness enabling her to be a real thought leader when it comes to understanding people, employees and what they need.
In addition, she has been personally mentored by Deepak Chopra, and most recently led his B2B strategy as the former Director of Enterprise Solutions at his company, Chopra Global. In addition, she and Deepak developed and led a unique leadership course called Workplace Wellbeing & the Soul of Leadership.
Danielle graduated from the University of Maryland with a double major in Marketing & International Business.
And on a more personal note, Danielle's motivation comes from having cancer (Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma) as a kid. She is committed to living a full and purposeful life so that she can set a positive example for her two young children, Giavanna and Nico. She is primarily based in New York and Florida.
Geoff’s background in teaching, HR, marketing, communications and sustainability is considerable. His experience during his 25 years with Unilever (a global corporation with a turnover of £50 billion and 170,000 employees in 90 countries worldwide), has taken him around the world, working across Africa, the Middle East and Turkey, Australasia and Asia, Europe and the Americas. His HR experience has spanned leadership and talent development, organization change, capability development with a particular reference to marketing, and business transformation with purpose at its core.
Early in his career he was responsible for graduate recruitment and development, talent, acquisitions and development across Unilever’s emerging markets. Under his leadership he developed Unilever’s global talent and leadership centre of expertise. More recently he devoted his time, energy, and effort to leading ground-breaking work where the HR function has played a central role in transforming Unilever’s business model with purpose at its core.
Geoff’s work today is truly global, and he is a very much sought-after speaker, strategic advisor and consultant. He inspires and provokes organizations around the world to put purpose and wellbeing at the centre of everything they do. His experience in Unilever, under the pupilage of Paul Polman, allows him to provide very practical insights and to speak on how to go about truly embedding PURPOSE and how to address the taboo associated with wellbeing (particularly mental health) within a large global multinational organization.
With this experience comes some real learning on what may or may not work. He has spoken at several Universities including Cambridge, Oxford, Bologna and Warwick and has had the opportunity to engage with Pope Francis on how we create a more sustainable and inclusive economy through his work with the Global Foundation. He has spoken also at many corporate events across Australia, Japan, North America, Europe, South Africa, Turkey and Eastern Europe.
He is a very active campaigner for breaking the stigma associated with Mental Health in the Corporate world and has participated in a number of BBC programmes and campaigns regarding this subject, as well as writing and producing articles for the Huffington Post, the Financial Times and HR-related journals.
Geoff is married with two girls and loves the outdoors. He is a passionate cyclist and swimmer and has completed several ultra-cycling and swimming events.
