State of Wellness Women's Summit

State of Wellness Women's Summit

Victoria’s inaugural State Of Wellness Women’s Summit, supported by Bendigo Bank and the Canny Group, was held in Geelong on Thursday, October 10th 2019. Coinciding with World Mental Health Awareness Day last Thursday, it was an auspicious day for Geelong to host Victoria’s first State of Wellness Women’s Summit at GMHBA Stadium. Fourteen expert speakers spoke to a full house of women, who travelled from all over the state to learn more about all aspects of health, wellbeing and sustainable living. The Summit aimed to empower women to create sustainable positive change in their lives, bringing together the best of our region’s wellness experts to inspire, encourage and guide women to live a healthy, happy and successful life. Women of all ages heard from a curated range of keynote speakers, and engaged in activities, a wellness expo and enjoyed nutritious food throughout the one-day event. It was a wonderful day for like-minded people to come together and learn, exploring ways to enhance their wellbeing on all levels and finding ways to live with joy, harmony and fun. The honourable MP Christine Couzens opened the event and spoke honestly about issues facing women in today’s society. Torquay’s Jo Surkitt, from Revitalize Lifestyle, designed the State Of Wellness event to raise awareness and provide education to engage, support and enable women to make good choices around their physical and mental health, family, work and overall wellbeing. According to Beyond Blue, around 1 in 6 women in Australia will experience depression and 1 in 3 women will experience anxiety during their lifetime, Jo Surkitt felt an event focussing on Women’s Wellness was needed and by the fact it was sold out she was right. Jo was overwhelmed with all the wonderful and positive feedback from the event. “I was delighted with the outcome of event, so many women spoke to me throughout the day telling me that the day had changed their perspective on life and how much the event meant to them.” Jo said The Summit covered wide ranging topics from hormones to nutrition, gut health to mental and emotional health, career to personal goals, fitness, overcoming illness, trauma and life challenges, rewiring the brain to creating healthy habits with guidance provided by passionate, flexible and resilient industry experts concluding with a transformational sound healing session.
