Seminar for the Appointed Actuary

Metro Toronto Convention Centre, South Building

September 22-23, 2014

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Greg Wells

In high-performance business situations, the human mind and body have to work together for ultimate results. Dr. Greg Wells, CTV sport science analyst and human physiologist, is a health and high-performance expert who draws the parallels between elite athletes and top executives to help business leaders perform at the highest level, even when under the most extreme circumstances.

Currently an assistant professor in kinesiology and physical education at the University of Toronto and an associate scientist in physiology and experimental medicine at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, Dr. Wells previously served as the director of sport science at the Canadian Sport Centre, taught elite sport coaches at the National Coaching Institute, and worked with the Royal Canadian Golf Association as its exercise physiologist. He has coached, trained, and inspired dozens of elite athletes to win medals at the Commonwealth Games, World Championships, and Olympics. He makes regular appearances on TV and radio as a health and performance expert, contributes articles for magazines and research papers for scientific journals, and is a high-demand speaker on better health, fitness, and performance.

Dr. Wells hosted the Gemini Award-winning “Superbodies” segments for Canada’s national Olympics broadcast, and the on-camera sport science and sport medicine analyst for various shows during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. He is the author of Superbodies: Peak Performance Secrets from the World’s Best Athletes, which decodes the science behind Olympic performance to understand the magic of the human body and includes high-performance tips for people of all ages and abilities to improve their health and fitness. Once an international-level competitive swimmer, he has also competed in marathons, triathlons, and the Tour d’Afrique—at 11,000 kilometers, the world’s longest bike race.
