Achieving a Work/Life Balance

What does having a good quality of life mean to you? For many of us, great health and a work/life balance would rank near the top of the list. Neither one is comes easy, and more importantly, they are connected to each other in so many ways.   

AustCham, together with the BCCT Professional Women's Group,  Australian-New Zealand Women's Group Bangkok (ANZWG) and AustralianAlumni, are pleased to invite members and friends to a refreshing evening presentation about How to Achieve a Work/Life Balance. The presentation will focus on healthy living and will feature two prestigious doctors from Bumrungrad Hospital as guest speakers. Guests will be warmly welcomed with delicious healthy drinks served by our venue sponsors, Cascade Club.

The first presentation, given by Dr Somboon Roonphornchai, will focus on the topic “How Can Hormones Help with Your Energy Level or Stamina”. This will be followed by the second presentation on “Personalised Exercise Regimens that Work for You”, presented by Dr Pichet Nampulsuksan. To read speech outline, please click here .

David Williamson, General Manager of Cascade Club, will then give a short introduction to the Cascade Club before inviting guests to further enjoy their evening with some healthy refreshments. At this time there will also be a variety of stations available at which curious guests can measure their body mass index and blood pressure. For those guests who are eager to kick-off their healthy lives, or for those who would like to know a little more, Cascade Club will be providing tours around their extensive fitness facilities.

We hope to see all of you there. Because remember: a healthy body is a happy body!
