THRIVEx is your opportunity to hear weekly from experts and thought leaders and learn how your peers are responding and adapting to an imminent "new normal".

Grab your oar and join us every Thursday in June and July 2nd from 2 pm AEST / 12 pm SGT to hear from the world's most forward-thinking health and wellbeing minds as we navigate these uncharted waters, together.
