I wish to sincerely thank you for participating at this year’s Freshables Conference, your topic and your presentation was just what the Doctor ordered being that the focus was on Health & Wellness at this year’s event. Your message and your energy inspired all that attended. Your execution was spot on while at the same time left us wanting more of what you had to offer. In today’s fast moving economy and hectic lifestyle you brought home a realistic action plan for real personal change as well as solutions that can target real sales growth in today’s Food Retail environment. I applaud your ability to coach and mentor and most importantly your infectious humour...

Andrea Holwegner was a guest speaker at our annual retreat and was great! Addressing a full room of doctors to discuss nutrition is a challenge, I am sure…but Andrea hit the mark by teaching us about the psychology of eating…the why and how it is that we ignore what we know about health…much more useful than a lecture on food. She was fun and engaging and the information she gave us was very, very relevant to all of us. Thank you, Andrea!

As a group of busy professionals with very demanding jobs, we appreciated Andrea’s practical, not perfect approach. She enthusiastically led our half-day offsite retreat with relevant strategies to improve our nutrition, health, and productivity.

Your stories and practical tips not only captivated the attention of our group but inspired us to take charge of our health. We learned that eating well doesn’t have to be difficult, and that small changes can really make a difference in how we feel at work every day. Your fresh approach to healthy eating and philosophy that all foods can fit really allowed you to connect with the audience. We look forward to having you speak to our group again. Thanks!
