Spark Health at Spark

Spark Health at Spark

Our program this year brings you over 100 events happening from October 10 to 27. In 2019 we are including health and wellbeing activities, plus some innovation showcase in this field.

Health innovation precincts in Australia are re-imagining health, education and research undertaken at individual and collaborative ways. These are contributing to longer and healthier lives, through improvements in technology, diagnostics and treatments.

Here at Spark we are aware that healthy people are almost three times more effective at work. When you practice mindfulness and maintain positive changes, you find it easier to realise the potential of your business, achieve your ambitions and attain the skills to succeed in the jobs of the future.

So this October, come along with your team and spark health at Spark!

Nature Bathing on the Bondi to Manly Walk

A nature connection walk is not a strenuous hike, or informative naturalist walk. Rather, it is an opportunity to slow down and allow nature to enter your body through all your senses.
