Fresh Resolutions, a health and wellness conference for young professionals, is coming to Dublin Castle on 5 January 2019.

Fresh Resolutions is founded and hosted by Jamie White, Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 and 2015, in partnership with The Happy Pear twins. Fresh Resolutions brings together professionals in the areas of health, personal development and wellness. These professionals are dedicated to helping Irish workers set and strive to achieve their personal wellness goals for 2019. This can be as simple as increasing your energy levels and meeting like-minded people, to bettering your productivity levels and finding inspiration.

Founder Jamie White has first hand experience with burnout, caused by neglecting his mental and physical health and overworking himself. Based on this experience, he founded Youth Nation to share his experience and the lessons he learned with other young people. Having sold Youth Nation, Jamie has dedicated himself to hosting Fresh Resolutions to make Irish professionals aware of the risks that neglecting their mental and physical health can cause to their overall wellbeing.

Goal Setting

Mark Pollock is an explorer, collaborator and an innovator. In 1998 he became the first blind man to race to the South Pole. When a fall from a second story window in 2010 left him paralysed, he dedicated himself to finding a cure for paralysis in this lifetime, securing $1 billion in funding to work towards this aim. In his keynote on the day, he will talk about overcoming challenges and setting your goals.

While travelling, she increased her knowledge of yoga and now wants to help people live a more fulfilling, passionate life. She will host two meditation sessions on the stage during Fresh Resolutions.

Budgeting and Finances

Andrea Linehan, investor and director of GRID Finance specialising in business financial health, will give important advice on earning, saving and investing.
