“The world has been changed forever with COVID-19, and we need to embrace the changes it has brought about, namely: greater public awareness of mental health struggles; of the vast gaps in healthcare access around the world; and a new approach to human health that is preventative rather than curative. That is what Living with Sunny is all about,” said RoundGlass founder Sunny (Gurpreet) Singh, whose YouTube podcast series: Living With Sunny, co-hosted with Thomas Power, launches this week.
As seekers of wellbeing, Sunny and Thomas will interview a range of figures from the worlds of business, medicine, academia, science, technology, and publishing, to explore individual wellbeing journeys and map out society’s progress towards a better, more harmonious world, across various industries.
“Why this podcast, and why now? Because the pandemic has driven wholistic health and wellbeing to the forefront of both science and business.” Sunny (Gurpreet) Singh.
The inaugural episode will see Sunny and Thomas interview the bright and brilliant Vernon Sankey, a serial executive, board director, and the author of two books: The Stairway to Happiness and The Way: Finding Peace in Turbulent Times. Sankey has made a name for himself not just as an exceptional executive, but also as a talented writer whose emotional intuition and sensitivity set him apart from his peers.
Himself a champion of Wholistic Wellbeing, Sankey dives into his past and shares nuggets of wisdom from his life in the corporate world, where he has become a pioneer of workplace wellbeing. But the conversation also goes beyond the workplace, venturing into Planetary Wellbeing, the importance of good teachers, and the need to live in the moment.
With their joint corporate expertise, Sunny and Thomas are particularly interested in addressing the issue of corporate wellbeing and manifesting the institutionalisation of Wholistic Wellbeing in the workplace. Their podcast will explore how businesses might adopt a new, preventative approach to wellbeing and replace current corporate healthcare packages with more wholistic alternatives that cover physical as well as financial, professional, social, planetary, community and emotional wellbeing, contiguous with the vision of Wholistic Wellbeing pioneered by Sunny. Combining business expertise with medical progressivism to usher forth a new era in corporate wellbeing, Sunny and Thomas hope to enact momentous change for the better.
Living With Sunny will be distributed via YouTube, but also via LinkedIn, Apple, Google Podcast, Spotify, and over 20 podcast directories. Collectively, this represents an outreach of over 10 million people a month.
Tune into the Living with Sunny podcast on YouTube and Podcast directories. New episodes every Tuesday.
