Wearables, Biometrics and Mindfulness as Medicine

Joe Burton Whil

In this session, we’ll cover how mindfulness is rapidly moving from woo-woo mantras to digital medicine.

The pace of modern living has consumers stressing out, burning out, and opting out at rates we’ve never seen before. This is showing up in both consumer health statistics and corporate bottom lines.

Neuroscience based training is helping individual consumers to reduce their stress, increase resiliency and improve their performance. In this session, we’ll explore the future of stress, the science behind mindfulness training and how wearables and biometrics are adding rocket fuel to what Harvard Business Review calls the ”must have” skill set for the modern executive.

Our speaker is Joe Burton, Founder and CEO of Whil. He’s an entrepreneur in digital wellness, the former President of Headspace and was a global COO in the two public companies. He discovered mindfulness as a super-stressed executive after dismissing it as “definitely not for me.” And it changed his life.
