The Body Corporate Wellness News
Karen, welcome back to The Body Corporate newsletter. May is with us already and after speaking with many of you, it appears the pace for the year is mounting! This is where we can assist. With our many new products and services coming up this year, read on and see how we can provide tools to help you with achieving a sustainable balance.
Now is a great time of year to be booking our informative wellness seminars to educate your staff. With the introduction of the latest ACC legislation, it makes economic sense to increase personal awareness and responsibility, as well as demonstrating your commitment to being an "employer of choice". The Body Corporate has a choice of 25 extremely popular mini seminars, covering a wide range of health related topics, some of which we have listed below. These mini seminars can be held monthly or bi-monthly during the lunch break and staff are invited to attend with their lunch. Alternatively, we can run the seminars at a time to suit your company. The seminars run for 45 minutes and are presented by one of the professional associates of The Body Corporate Ltd that specialise in the topic area.

Time for some real R&R

For many of you, your first point of contact with The Body Corporate has been with our wellness associate, Jenni Simester. Jenni's marriage last December signalled the start of many new changes in her life, the latest of which is her decision to change direction and invest more time in her relationship with husband, Richard. Jenni is looking forward to exciting times ahead with Richard and their friends, and more time to travel. We have been very fortunate to have Jenni with us for the past 12 months, and although we are envious of her new found freedom, we wish her all the best, and thank her for her superb contribution to our team at The Body Corporate.
The three K's… Karen, Karen and Karin!

Confused… we are! You all know Karen Beard, and we have now introduced you to Karen Moffatt. We have one other new addition to our team - Karin Hoffman.
