Thursday 27 May 15:30 – Your Body in Balance

We invite you to join Anita Duverell, self-confessed food geek and health nerd, for a conversation about healthy choices for optimal body balance.

What do our bodies need? How are we affected when we lack nutrients? What do our cells require to function properly? And how can we know if our bodies are in balance or not?

Anita will help us make informed choices that bring our bodies in balance from the inside out.

Anita is a well-known public speaker in health matters, with industry experience of the food and energy sectors, business to business, sponsorship, marketing and communications.

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short videos to share on the HIC website and social media. If you prefer not to be in any photos or videos, please let us know at the beginning of the event. Thank you!

Tuesday 10 May 17:30 – Lifestyle, Health and Entrepreneurship

Join us for a knowledge-sharing, entrepreneurial networking event with a health theme in the main office of Forza of Sweden!
This is an event for anyone wishing to discover ways to make the most out of their time in Sweden – whether as an entrepreneur or as someone searching for opportunities for personal growth and a healthy lifestyle. Members of the Forza network will share their entrepreneurial journeys in Sweden and welcome the audience to ask questions after the presentations.

We will hear how health, fitness or lifestyle entrepreneurs and practitioners have re-invented their careers, and discuss what lessons we can learn from them and apply to our own work situations. They will talk to us about which treatments, therapies and products can help boost the entrepreneur’s overall health, well-being and productivity.

HIC creates a softer landing for internationals in our region; our on- & offline English-speaking platform provides the tools needed to embrace your life and career in Sweden. We warmly welcome anyone with an interest in networking and knowledge-sharing to our community.

We look forward to matching the skills and expertise available between the HIC and Forza networks, and to create an excellent platform for any budding or existing entrepreneur in the Helsingborg area!
