Lily designed and implemented a brilliant workplace wellness strategy for our employees at PRESS London. Her talk on eating for success had 100% slots booked within minutes. This was one of the best talks we have had, and her smart eating strategies have really helped to enhance my productivity. I no longer have that dreaded afternoon slump which is all thanks to her great nutrition tips. I would highly recommend Lily for designing a nutrition-focused corporate wellness strategy as we have seen great results from her guidance.’
