The Development of the “Creating Healthier Workplaces” Program
When Peter Doyle (www.guidelight.com.au) started his own health and wellness journey in January 2013 he simply thought he was going to lose weight and get a little fitter. Whilst undertaking a training program with the experienced personal trainer Nikki Wakerley he discovered so much more including the desire to share his insights, and personal training and coaching ideas to help others.
Merging corporate experience with health and wellbeing insights, we have created an exceptional program to assist business owners, proprietors and managers to get so much more out of their own lives as well as making their work environments healthier, more appealing to employees and more conducive to higher level thinking and productivity.

The role of the food that we eat, as a factor in our mental and physical wellbeing both as individuals and in the workplace, cannot be underestimated. So we are pleased to have Nutritionist Dianne Doyle as part of our Creating Healthier Workplaces team. Dianne’s enthusiasm for food which nourishes both body and soul led her to create Dolce Organico, a line of vegan meringues which are a guilt-free treat suitable for just about anybody – they are organic, gluten free, dairy free, egg free, plant based, and have only 1 teaspoon of raw sugar per three meringues!
