The Breakers Palm Beach to Host 11th Annual Global Wellness Summit

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has officially announced The Breakers Palm Beach as this year’s host sponsor and location for its 11th annual conference Oct. 9 to 11. The Breakers will have a key role in shaping the content of the conference and is supported in their GWS sponsorship efforts by two Florida-based institutions, including Cigna Corporation, a global health service company dedicated to helping people improve their wellbeing, and Palm Beach Atlantic University, a comprehensive, interdenominational Christian university. “Bringing the Summit back to the U.S., whose last gathering took place in collaboration with the Aspen Institute in Colorado, opens up great opportunities for a dynamic agenda that includes visionaries and entrepreneurs that make up one of the largest and most innovative wellness markets in the world,” says Susie Ellis, CEO and chairman for the GWS. “And easy international access to Palm Beach, as well as The Breakers’ inherent beauty and coveted beachfront location, will undoubtedly be a draw for our global delegation. However, we anticipate that the biggest impact The Breakers will have on attendees is understanding their unwavering commitment to the wellbeing of their team, community, and environment, and how that ultimately drives guest satisfaction.”

GWS delegates, who are key influencers from the $3.72 trillion global wellness industry, will be given the opportunity to experience some of The Breakers initiatives first hand. Attendees will learn of the resort’s longstanding, committed owners and executive team who have developed a wellness-focused business that empowers team members to attain professional and personal goals and reach their greatest potential. The result is an engaging, collaborative, and high-achieving workforce, to which Paul Leone, CEO of The Breakers, attributes the resort’s success as one of America’s most profitable independent hotels. “We believe that the heart and soul of an organization drives its long-term success—a belief that was instilled in our culture over 120 years ago by our founder, Henry Morrison Flagler,” says Leone. “We look forward to not only sharing our many initiatives—including our dedicated Wellness Team, unique wellness incentives, healthcare discounts, and financial wellness programs that include college and retirement planning—with Global Wellness Summit delegates, but anticipate engaging them directly in our spirit of community service and environmental advocacy.”
