Tom Rath, researcher and author of five international bestsellers, will share his latest research about how small choices profoundly affect our daily wellbeing and effectiveness at work. Drawing on the latest research from business, psychology and economics, Tom's presentation will focus on the most practical changes we can make to create better days for ourselves and others. He will address the importance of meaningful work, the influence of relationships and interactions, and how we can create the physical energy we need to be our best every day.

M.C. Schraefel, Ph.D., professor of computer science and human performance at the University of Southampton, England, will provide attendees with insights on how to acknowledge what's exceptional in our lives and improve what's not.

Ms. Schraefel is also a fellow of the British Computer Society and a senior researcher fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Stacy Molander, vice president of strategic initiatives for Partner for a Healthier America (PHA), will provide first-hand insights into the projects, progress and direction of PHA.
