You’re an innovative leader who prioritizes mental health & belonging in your team and in your whole company. I wrote this for you.

 I’m on Earth to equip you with science-based human connection tools for your company events, so that your wellness & culture budget translates into lasting results.

— Jacques

Here’s my greatest insight for designing company events that generate positive relationships.

Whether your company event is physical or virtual, the same rule applies. You have to prevent your colleagues from feeling distracted, disconnected, or disengaged… or worse, consumed by smartphones and alcohol.

Contrary to what the average corporate planner believes, there is a far better approach to avoid all this than an open bar, fancy décor, and expensive performers.

When all other companies are playing it safe and thinking conventionally, it’s easy to stand out as a genius, leave your colleagues wanting more, and raise your reputation. Here’s how.

Make their human connections more joyful, meaningful, and vulnerable.

How do you transform passive scrolling, small-talking, watching and boozing INTO active laughing, bonding, celebrating and playing?

Apply the science of human connection to…

✔ Flood the brain with healthy neurotransmitters.

 Cultivate a sense of safety and belonging.

 Annihilate stress, loneliness, and self-concern.

 Create lasting community, not temporary fun.

This is my expertise. Let me help. I can distill some of my wisdom for you, pro bono.

My method

That’s me in action. Leading a social-bonding experience for LUSH cosmetics.

This is my way of spreading the mental and physical health benefits of human connection.

Over the last 6 years, I’ve developed a new practice that combines meditation, movement, laughter, gratitude, and playful connection. Professionally facilitated and based on the science of social-bonding.

It’s called vyving and it’s designed to unlock the full health benefits of connection.

Vyving is the product of 1100+ experimental parties and workshops over the last 6 years.

During the process, which took place across 14 countries, I discovered the research on social neurochemistry.

This discovery led me to start designing activities that evoke the release of happiness neurotransmitters: Dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins. Vyving is a sequence of these activities.

I’m now ready to share vyving with movers and shapers in the events & meetings industry. Courageous ones.

I want to work with you to raise the mental health and belonging of everyone who attends your event.

Schedule an advisory chat and let’s strategize about making your event one that leaves your guests happier and healthier, asking two questions.

“When is your next event?!”
And… “Can I bring my friends!?”

Social bonding

Vitality Vyve — This is my signature wellness experience, guaranteed to flood the brain with healthy neurotransmitters whether virtual or physical.

Focused on “getting high through human connection,” it incorporates games, line-dances, and other activities I have invented based on social neurochemistry.

It’s a combination of improv, meditation, and zumba, all adjusted to the comfort level of your group.

Belonging Vyve — This relational experience involves vulnerability and story-telling exercises, designed to deepen psychological safety and trust.

It’s slower, deeper, and more tender. Example exercises include Life Journey Stories and Show-n-Tell.
