A powerful agenda

“The journey to bring the GWS to Tel Aviv began in 2020 but the world had other ideas,” said GWS chief creative operator and executive director, Nancy Davis.

“It took chutzpah to bring this summit to life, and the calibre and variety of speakers, the soulfulness and creativity, and the sheer breadth of content confirm that we have delivered a powerful agenda.

“Getting to know the country, the people and the palpable energy that courses through Tel Aviv is something I want every delegate to feel. Producing a global gathering centred around wellness, at a time in the world when that’s needed more than ever, is an honour and a responsibility,” Davis added.
