Advisory Board

Our advisory board members represent a broad cross-section of benefits/workplace health stakeholders. They volunteer their valuable time to develop our season agendas and secure seasoned presenters who are willing to share their expertise and insight into the private healthcare sector. Our advisory board members meet two to three times in preparation for our season, review feedback from attendees, input from sponsors and identify opportunities to bring new insights for our attendees.

‘The feedback from plan sponsors, advisors and other industry stakeholders has been fantastic over the years and we have been very fortunate to have such loyal supporters from industry sponsors and attendees. The quality of our content is largely thanks to the experts on the BBC Advisory Boards, who meet regularly and source their contacts, to ensure we secure expert presenters who deliver relevant content on topical issues in employee benefits.’

Denise Balch, Founder and President, Connex Health
