What is the future of wellness? Nikolas Badminton moderated an  online futurist panel for world-leading brand experience company MOSAIC on ‘The wellness pandemic: How will the new normal drive new brand purpose?’

MOSAIC One-eighty
Nikolas’ client MOSAIC is working to flip the script and re-write the future of culture, commerce and creativity. We see that business as usual has fundamentally changed. Where some see chaos, we see opportunity. Because at MOSAIC they’ve always believed when you look at a problem differently, solutions arise.

That’s the idea behind OneEighty, an ongoing series of virtual sessions where we flip the script, the status quo, the traditional ways of looking at things, to present alternative points of intersection, optimism and growth for the industry and communities at large.

The Future of Wellness

The need to stay at home has driven the need for consumers to find new ways to stay safe, healthy, fit and seek holistic wellness for body, mind and soul. This panel will discuss ways brands can live their purpose and help consumers as they adapt to their new normal. You’ll hear from unconventional wellness brands who have successfully made the shift, moderated by Nikolas Badminton.
