Dr. Greg Wells

CTV Sport Science Analyst, Health & Peak Performance Expert

Bio

In high performance business situations, the human mind and body have to work together for ultimate results. Speaker Dr. Greg Wells 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. +

As a high school student, Dr. Wells broke his neck in a freak accident while swimming in the ocean. After neurosurgery, he was told by his doctor that he would never perform as an athlete again. He went on to compete at the international level in swimming, competing in events such as the Nanisivik Marathon 600 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Ironman Canada, and the Tour D’Afrique, a grueling 11,000-kilometre event that is the longest bike race in the world.

Throughout his career, Dr. Wells has coached, trained and inspired dozens of elite athletes to win medals at the Commonwealth Games, World Championships, and the Olympics. He has also studied athletic performance in some of the most severe conditions on the planet, including the Andes Mountains and the Sahara Desert.

Currently, Dr. Wells is an associate professor in kinesiology at the University of Toronto and serves as a Senior Scientist in Translational Medicine at The Hospital for Sick Children. At Sick Kids he leads the Exercise Medicine Research Program, exploring how to use exercise to prevent, diagnose, and treat chronic illnesses in children.

A frequent contributor to The Globe and Mail, Dr. Wells is often used as an expert source for top media outlets including USA Today, ABC News, “20/20,” The Discovery Channel, TSN, CBC, and CTV. He also served as the sports medicine analyst for the Canadian Olympic Broadcast Consortium for the 2010 and 2012 Olympic Games.

He is also the bestselling author of three books Superbodies: Peak Performance Secrets from the World’s Best Athletes, The Ripple Effect: Sleep Better, Eat Better, Move Better, Think Better, and The Focus Effect.--

Topics

Dr. Greg Wells’ presentations and workshops are designed to educate, inspire and lead people towards better performance and health by getting them to sleep soundly, eat smarter, move more, think clearly and to perform better.

Olympic athletes train and compete at the highest levels on a consistent basis over many years.

These are the same challenges that are faced by business people, and the tools and techniques that Olympians use can be applied by anyone at any time to ensure success.

This presentation is based on the best-selling book Superbodies: Peak Performance Secrets from the World's Best Athletes. --

Building Healthy High Performance Teams: There Are Teams…. And Then There Are Healthy High-Performance Teams

It’s common knowledge that productivity increases when people collaborate well. That goes for businesses, schools and universities. High-functioning teams are good for profitability, student achievement and even fun get-togethers.

But what makes a terrific team? Is it putting the greatest minds together? Socializing outside of work? Grouping people by experience? Having the same level of education? Having a strong leader? Good teams might have some or all of those things. But so do bad teams. When you take the time to review the research, none of those factors explain what makes a great team great. +

In this presentation Dr. Wells leads teams through a 5-step process for establishing healthy high-performing teams. This workshop is based on the Aristotle Project research at Google and Dr. Wells’ experience working with international level sports teams and extreme expeditions to some of the world’s most challenging environments such as the Sahara Desert and the Andes mountains. Participants will learn how to perform more effectively as individuals and as a team while improving their work environment to optimize mental health. --
