How can we make good health accessible and real for more people? What role does tech - specifically AI and bots - have to play in creating opportunities for both our sickness and wellness? And if we really dropped old dualistic notions of "mind" and "body", how might the healthcare system be reconfigured and what new philosophies and partnerships might emerge?
Just eight members are being invited to this Hot Breakfast: each has a different background and a different perspective, but all are experts in the health and wellness industries and all are intent on finding more holistic, integrative solutions to the afflictions of modern lifestyles.
They are people we think ought to meet each other, to share advice and best practice, to gain insights from different experiences and to sound out objective opinions on any challenges that they are facing... and, of course, be fuelled with a delicious breakfast!
Themes of the Breakfast
Modern mindsets for living and working

At the breakfast
Please arrive promptly, as we will only properly get going once everyone is at the table, and a feast awaits you, thanks to our hosts at The Larder...
We'll kick off with brief introductions, so that you have a sense of the variety of backgrounds and skills at play. Over two delicious courses, we'll then go round the table, giving everyone the chance to speak, listen, question and think.
Kate, the founder of The Hot Breakfast and your host for the morning, will facilitate the event to ensure that obvious connections are drawn out, but what you choose to talk about is entirely your decision.
There's no need to prepare, but please consider that this is an exceptional forum in which to bounce ideas, discuss problems, ask questions and air the issues that are on your mind!
As ever, our conversation takes place under the Chatham House Rule, as well as the two HB House Rules, namely:
No hard-selling. This is not that kind of forum and you're all members so you've all got great ideas by definition.
Please do your best to save your emails and texts for later: it's not only you that your phone distracts.
We'll wrap up at the dot of 9am; please let Kate know in advance if you need to leave earlier as it affects the dynamic of the table.
After the event you'll receive an email with everyone's contact details, and key recommendations that came up in conversation (such as events, organisations, articles etc.) will be shared online.
We will take account of all recorded dietary requirements when preparing the menu for this breakfast. Due to the bespoke nature of the event, seats cannot be transferred - but if you are suddenly no longer able to attend and have an appropriate replacement in mind then do let us know and we'll consider if they will fit in. We are also unable to issue refunds less than 5 days before the event.
