Tad Mitchell, WellRight
Passion: the driving enthusiasm that comes from something you love.
Tad Mitchell, CEO of WellRight, has blended two passions – technology and wellness. For a wellness program to be truly effective, employees need to uncover why they want to be healthy. They need to explore the deep-down, heartfelt fears and hopes that drive their behavior and their habits. Finding their purpose will drive their passion for making positive lifestyle changes. Tad will share how his passion for wellness and software design has driven him to help others.
