Improve Your Team's Mental Health and Wellbeing

Book Celynn to present her SANTÉ keynote for your event


Joyfulness. Celebration. Exhilaration.

These are all words that can be associated with sparkling wine. This alliance between happiness and that recognisable champagne flute is the basis for “Santé - Celebrating Wellbeing”. It is an intertwining of the effervescence of sparkling wine, and the effervescence of life.

Effervescence is not just a word to describe the bubbles in your drink. It is also a metaphor for vibrance, liveliness, and a carefree spirit. Just as effervescence is not just a word for carbonation, “Santé - Celebrating Wellness” is not just another presentation. It is change. It is transformation. It is a journey from before to after, with the goal being increased productivity, true authentic smiles, and a life filled with sparkle.

Using the process and symbolic attributes of making sparkling wine as a metaphor for the transformative power of wellbeing, this session guides participants towards that sparkling future. During times of global uncertainty, there has never been a greater need for the pursuit of joy and celebration.

This innovative presentation creates space in one's life for joy, connection, revitalization and wellbeing. With “Santé - Celebrating Wellbeing”, just like the bubbles in your glass, elevate your spirit, and allow yourself to rise to meet your future.


Joy! Why bother to create more? 

Multiple scientific studies show that people with more eudaimonic happiness are...

  • Reaping the benefits of a more positive outlook – improved creativity, stronger relationships, increased energy and better health
  • More productive both professionally and in their personal lives 

  • More effective in leadership roles by building confidence and motivation

  • Benefitting from a stronger support system by building meaningful connections

  • More resilient both physically, spiritually and emotionally – learning to grow through adversity

  • More likely to have fulfilling romantic relationships and optimised social connections

    More likely to experience healthier immune systems, and even live longer

An Incredible & Transformational Speaker!

"Having had Celynn present a variety of outstanding sessions over the years I feel the time has come to highlight what an incredible, and transformational speaker, presenter and coach she is. Her depth of knowledge, wisdom and expertise in whatever she is presenting on never fails to impress. Many have credited her with life transformations, as well as providing tools and techniques for health, nutrition, resilience and general wellbeing. She is both tireless and selfless in her desire to help others. I cannot recommend her highly enough and look forward to many more years of working together."

Laura Gordon

Expert. Engaging. Actionable!

"In January 2024, I invited Celynn back to talk with one of my business leader peer groups. This was the 5th time Celynn has presented to my groups - a record for any speaker working with me. This should be no surprise as Celynn is such an expert in the world of wellness and nutrition, and has a very engaging delivery style. By the end of each session, I find I have taken copious notes, have several highly actionable actions and the motivation to implement. It is no exaggeration to say that Celynn has improved the health and wellbeing of myself and my members."

What does sparkling wine have to do with wellbeing?

Workplace Culture

  • Psychological Safety - Sparkling wine requires a protective environment in which to thrive. Workplaces that adopt this mentality and value creativity will see increases in performance, satisfaction and engagement.

  • Resilience and Renewal - Workplaces must weather the storm, learning to thrive under pressure, much like a vineyard must adapt to different conditions. Promoting resilience through practical holistic health practices is essential.

  • Leadership and Wellbeing - Leaders should strive to celebrate joy and wellbeing, acting as a Chief Effervescent Officer, which will enhance the workplace culture.

Mental and Emotional Wellbeing

  • Necessary Pressures - Precision when pressing grapes for sparkling wine is of vital importance for extracting the highest quality juice, as is effective stress management, which will extract higher productivity and positivity.

  • Effervescence as Vitality - the liveliness and vibrancy that workplace culture greatly benefits from can be related to that same effervescence in your glass of Champagne, Cava or Prosecco, and the vibrancy you feel while drinking it.

  • Celebration, Gratitude, and Recognition - Recognising and celebrating the achievements and ideas of employees is vital for morale and motivation, much like the celebration that ensues at the popping of a cork.

Physical Wellbeing

  • Nourishing Foundations - grapevine health is deeply important to the quality of sparkling wine. The same way they require adequate nutrition, hydration, sunlight and general physical health, so do we.

  • Soil Health and Gut Flora - A healthy gut contributes to overall physical and mental health, in much the same way that healthy soil and foundations are crucial to the overall health of grapevines.

  • Rest and Rejuvenation - We need a rest period much like the one in the winemaking process, it is necessary for emotional wellbeing. Sustaining effervescence requires strong boundaries and downtime.

Meaning and Purpose

  • Mindful Celebration - Savour and appreciate life's moments, the same way you would savour your glass of sparkling wine. Create ‘champagne moments’ - with or without the beverage.

  • Balancing and Integrating - The blending process in winemaking has similarities with finding a work-life balance – achieved through self-awareness and self-regulation.

  • Adding Sweetness - enriching life and wellbeing through the incorporation of hobbies, creativity and passion is not dissimilar to the process of dosing sparkling wine to achieve a quality flavour.

Participants Will Learn

How to become their own CEO – Chief Effervescent Officer – and sustain a positive outlook and renew their energy.

  • Opportunity to discover more about how the metaphor of sparkling wine making applies to health and wellbeing.
  • How to be self-aware about your stress levels and developing strategies for coping with them.
  • Apply the ‘seasons’ framework to manage better work life balance and integration.
  • Cultivate a culture of celebration and appreciation of ‘champagne moments’ that contribute to sustained health and wellbeing.

Become your own CEO – Chief Effervescent Officer – and discover celebration, curiosity and connection

Cherishing and nurturing your wellbeing will allow you to discover how to create a flourishing personal and professional life. If an employee's ideas are as well received and celebrated as the popping of the cork on that bottle that’s been saved for the latest lavish affair, then they will be far more likely to know they are in a safe workplace, where their enthusiasm will be both encouraged and nurtured. Don’t put a cork in it; strengthen and embolden your leadership skills through the magic of enhanced wellbeing.

Ben Wales (Founder, Leader&Team)

J'ai été ravie que Celynn organise le Team Building de rentrée pour l'équipe AYA Partners. Sur le thème "Santé ! Celebrate your wellbeing" et de la vinification champenoise, elle a su nous sensibiliser à nos équilibres professionnel, personnel et émotionnel. Ses partages d'expérience et ses tips ont été une révélation pour plusieurs d'entre nous: Une ne prend plus de somnifères et dort comme un bébé et les jeunes ont repris le sport et s'y tiennent. Surtout, nous sommes tous Chief Effervescent Officers! Son suivi en micro capsules vient rappeler les objectifs que nous nous sommes fixés, redonne les moyens d'y parvenir simplement. Merci Celynn pour cette énergie positive et cette inspiration partagée.

Virginie Lagrange (Founding Partner, AYA Partners)

We were fortunate to welcome Celynn as our guest speaker at our Management Day. She spoke passionately on the subject of wellbeing with a fresh and thoroughly consumable approach to deliver a fantastic session, which was regarded very positively by the team. The session had every single member of the team thinking differently about their wellbeing. I genuinely think that Celynn may have changed the way that the whole team think about their wellbeing for good, which I know that Celynn will regard as "mission accomplished". Highly recommended.
