10,000 Herbalife members from across Southeast Asia gathered in Bangkok to learn how to inspire positive nutrition habits and active lifestyles within their local communities.

Based on statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), the percentage of people who are overweight and obese in Southeast Asia rose from 19.8% in 2010 to 22% in 2014, with Malaysia and Indonesia charting higher rates of overweight and obesity compared to other countries in the region. This underscores the growing importance of teaching positive nutrition and active living habits among people in the region, in order to empower them with sustainable ways to manage their weight effectively.

 

“With rising obesity rates, Herbalife Nutrition sees an urgent need to address the issue in a sustainable manner,” said Stephen Conchie, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Herbalife Asia Pacific. “Through the years, we have been championing the cause of healthy, active living, and changing people’s lives by providing the best nutrition and weight-management products in the world. We look forward to helping educate the masses on living healthy, active lifestyles.”

 

A key highlight of the event was the keynote speech delivered by Herbalife Nutrition Chief Operating Officer and incoming Chief Executive Officer (effective June 2017), Rich Goudis. He outlined each member’s role in inspiring positive nutrition habits within their respective spheres of influence, and shared practical skills on being agents of change within their local communities, given megatrends including obesity, aging, rising health care cost and millennial entrepreneurs. Separately, Dr. Luigi Gratton, Vice President of Nutrition Education and Development at Herbalife Nutrition and Chairman of the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board, also helmed a workshop on the science and research behind the Company’s nutrition philosophy. Other highlights of the event include a speech by Stephen Conchie, who gave an address on the role of Herbalife in championing the cause of healthy active living in the region.
