Sangha founder Fred Tsao to keynote GWS

The Global Wellness Summit has announced that Frederick Chavalit (Fred) Tsao will keynote at the 13th annual Summit being held 15-17 October in Hong Kong.

Tsao, fourth-generation leader of IMC Pan Asia Alliance Group, is a businessman, who, as chairman, transformed the family business from a traditional shipping company to a diverse, multinational conglomerate.

More recently, his passion for holistic wellness led to his creation of Octave Institute, a lifestyle platform of curated wellbeing that includes the new Sangha Retreat in Suzhou, China.

This month, Tsao’s book, Quantum Leadership: New Consciousness in Business, will be published by Stanford University Press.

Tsao’s Summit keynote will explore the connection between business and human wellbeing, offering a pathway for uniting Quantum Leadership and Quantum Wellness to achieve much more successful and sustainable businesses.

“Tsao is that rare combination of an incredibly successful businessman, passionate wellness pioneer and advocate, and deep spiritual thinker,” said Nancy Davis, chief creative officer and executive director of the GWS. “A thought-leader in the emerging philosophy of Quantum Leadership, delegates will learn much from him about how the thriving, profitable businesses of the future will shift their consciousness to better serve human wellbeing and the needs of society.”

For 25 years, Tsao has been on a journey that has taken him all over the world in search of the most impactful life sciences, medical approaches, and philosophies and practices spanning both traditional and nontraditional cultures, customs, faiths and societies. This odyssey led to the development of an integrative methodology to achieve Quantum Wellness — and the founding of Octave Institute, which is comprised of the state-of-the-art At One Clinic, At One Healing Spa, Aitia, The Living Room, the annual At One International Festival and the new Sangha Retreat.

His newest and most ambitious project, Sangha Retreat, is a radically immersive health and wellbeing resort located in Suzhou, China. The 47-acre lakeside village takes a global view toward transformative wellbeing, blending Eastern philosophies with Western science. It begins with a comprehensive medical assessment by an international team of doctors who create a customised programme of nutritionally balanced meals, healing treatments, exercise and activities, plus follow-up support for lasting lifestyle changes.

Tsao’s new book Quantum Leadership: New Consciousness in Business, written with Chris Laszlo, explores the current high levels of employee disengagement and customer fickleness; why current approaches to leadership fail to produce positive outcomes for businesses and the communities they serve; and how to achieve creativity and collaboration at all levels of entrepreneurial activity.

“We know when we are well, and we are only well when all is well. This means that our family, friends, community, business, society and environment must be well for us to feel wholly well,” said Tsao.

“We are entering an era with a new paradigm,” he continued. “This is the paradigm of Quantum Leadership, where all people must become the CEO of their own life. We need to take responsibility for our holistic wellbeing and for a purposeful life, mindfully lived.”

The Summit takes place at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong from 15-17 October, 2019. With a 2019 theme of “Shaping the Business of Wellness,” the conference will feature dozens of speakers on emerging business and wellness trends.
