Vivian Acquah is a driven woman who likes to talk about the holistic way of sustainable employability, called workplace wellness. For her, this is the way to work on a healthy culture at work. Becoming a mother inspired Vivian to shift from being a Finance/ IT consultant to becoming a workplace wellness advocate. She made a promise to her son to help make the world a sustainable place by advocating for a healthy workplace where people can thrive. The coolest thing Vivian has ever accomplished is that she created a healthy cooking show for TV “Cooking Back To Our Roots”. This show was a tribute to her grandmother, who she lost in 2009 due to diabetes type 2.
