Why companies work with us

Nutrition is one of the top ways to improve health and wellness and also one of the most requested areas employees actually want support and resources.

We would be a good fit for your workplace if:

  1. Your group needs resuscitation! Refreshing wellness initiatives with relevant content PLUS entertainment and fun.
  2. You want better employee engagement. You need new initiatives above and beyond your existing lunch and learns, health fairs, and health screenings.
  3. Your organization wants to go from having a generalist approach to wellness to diving deeper and creating a rock solid nutrition game plan for your employees.
  4. Your company is just launching a workplace wellness program and would like to draw on the ideas, success, and challenges learned from other organizations.
  5. You are planning an event, offsite retreat, town hall, or conference and are looking for a fresh perspective on the topic of health, wellness, and productivity and need a high-energy, fun and credible speaker that can connect with a broad diverse audience.
  6. Your employees work remotely or are spread out in multiple locations, and work a variety of shifts. You need digital online solutions that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.

Professional Speaker Andrea Holwegner

success stories

“I am a family physician who sees patients with a myriad of eating concerns – from wanting to know how to plan healthy meals for active families, to weight loss, to eating disorders, and so on. I cannot recommend the Health Stand team highly enough. I have worked with (and been to!) other dieticians in the past and too often find that they just ask for food logs and make suggestions that are easily obtained online or in books. The dieticians at Health Stand offer much more than just telling clients what they “should be eating.” In contrast, the team really does more of a counselling practice, and they work hard to help their clients learn more about why their eating habits may be off track and not optimal for them, as well as helping people to effect change at a deep level that, most importantly, is sustainable for lifetime health.”
Dr. Deb Putnam, Family Physician

“I am so grateful for the onsite executive coaching of Health Stand Nutrition Consulting Inc. that our company, Walton Global Investments Ltd., decided to provide to the executives. Of course, I have always known that healthy eating is essential for overall long term health, but it has been with your instructions that I have committed myself to proper nutrition – and it’s working! As a result of these sessions, I am more productive, have more energy at work, and have learned not only what to eat, why and when, but also easy strategies to keep it up. My commitment to long term health has never been better or more fun. Thanks for sharing your expertise and putting me on the path to a healthy life.”
Leslie Fryers, Q.C., ICD.D, Executive Vice President, Law

“Andrea, your high energy keynote session delivered at our conference was right on target! Your positive contagious energy and humour generated optimism with our group. 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!”
Debra Watt, Manager, Court Services

“Thanks Andrea for an amazing presentation, I have heard all positive remarks from attendees and the evaluations show the same sentiment. It is really gratifying when a speaker does their “homework” and weaves in our profession’s day to day challenges within their content, you did an awesome job of this! You truly took the “die” out of Dietician! Your information on healthy eating and simplifying how we can work towards this as we are all so busy really hit the mark. Andrea connects very well with her audience; she is energetic, funny, and very approachable.”
Carole Ann LaGrange

“Excellent presentation! What a refreshing change to have a speaker inspire rather than “lecture” about nutrition. Your captivating stories, tips and overall approach to healthy eating uplifts and puts people at ease. It was great to hear we don’t need to strive to be perfect eaters, and that small changes really can make a difference in how we feel and in our health. Thanks to Andrea, we have solutions to our everyday nutrition challenges that can actually work in real life!”
Tina Tamagi, Human Resources

ARC Resources Ltd.

“As a construction company, we select speakers who can relate to our industry and its employees. Andrea’s message was delivered with humor and empathy. She makes people feel as though they can make changes without leaving behind every favorite food. Andrea focused her presentation on healthy eating as a way to keep energy high throughout the day. This message and the way it was delivered resonated with our predominantly male, blue collar culture. I would highly recommend Andrea as a speaker for groups such as ours. She will get your message across without alienating anyone in your audience – which is a huge hurdle when trying to introduce a wellness program in the workplace!”
Stephanie Wood, HR and Safety Manager

Fisher Construction Group, Burlington, WA

“We have worked with Registered Dietitian Andrea Holwegner to organize and facilitated seminars, onsite nutrition counselling, healthy catering menus and a one-of-a-kind monthly nutrition club. We have consistently found Andrea’s expert advice, approachability and sense of humour are very well received by our employees. She is quick to help develop new creative initiatives and go the extra mile to help create value for our corporate wellness program.  Having the same ongoing person supporting our nutrition initiatives has a clear return on investment and has helped drive home a consistent credible message. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrea as a speaker for your next event and partner in co-creating nutrition initiatives for your workplace. She can help your employees tackle better productivity, less stress, weight management, heart health and more.”
Jen Huebner, Health & Safety Specialist

“Andrea’s presentation was very entertaining, engaging and inspiring. I loved the personal approach. It was good to see the material presented in a manner that could be well received by the audience who for the most part would be unwilling/open to changing their diet for the better.”
Brandon Buchholz, Health Care Aide

Attendee of First Nations and Inuit Health: Health Care Aide Training Day

“Andrea is not only a wellness expert but also an engaging speaker that has stirred up positive change in our team. 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. Each of us took away simple tips that could be implemented right away to help us manage stress and improve how we perform in our professional and personal lives.”
Carrolyn Schmid & Jacky Chan, Senior Advisors

Corporate Controllers Group, Enbridge Inc.

“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!”
Dr. Val Kirk MD FRCPC CCPE, Deputy Head

Department of Paediatrics, University of Calgary

“Andrea, I just wanted you to know that your session changed my life.  I never took the time to understand nutrition – I love food, I am not over-weight, so all is cool!  So I thought.  The seminar taught me some very practical things and tips.  But mostly Andrea, it’s the common sense approach and the no “severe” rules approach that you used to deliver the material that made it worthwhile.  I left feeling that I could do something about it and it was not going to be negative (I can still have my two glasses of wine!).  I am now so much more aware of nutrition and its impact on my life. Thanks again.”
Richard Boyer, President & CEO

“We have continued to bring Andrea back multiple times as a speaker for our organization because her message clearly hits home with our employees.  She has a unique ability to bring fun, relevant and realistic solutions to help our employees live healthier despite demanding work schedules.  When employees are healthier, our company benefits with an improved bottom line.  When you need a motivational speaker that will deliver education mixed with a sense of humour in the topic areas of health, wellness and productivity, Andrea will deliver”.
