Diamond Sponsor Feature – InHouse Physicians
With the threats to travelers growing, duty of care is front and center as a job responsibility of planners. At this year’s M&IW Annual Summit you will meet a leader in the industry who not only consistently delivers a powerful risk management solution to their clients, but a company that has transformed to a much broader mission. InHouse Physicians leverages the latest in neuroscience offerings and creates a roadmap that adds significant values to programs. InHouse Physicians (IHP) introduces neuroscience elements, such as mindfulness, nutrition for the brain, and visualization into meetings.
Dr. Spero, the CEO of IHP had the following to say about Seeing the Impossible. InHouse Physicians has gone beyond what is possible by exploring new opportunities with neuroscience interventions, the flow state of the brain and what he has termed as “BioStacking. To learn more about the ‘how’, ‘what’, and ‘why’ of IHP, please continue reading the interview below.
This year’s M&IW Summit Theme is See the Impossible. Our message is about going beyond what is possible to uncover solutions to challenges and explore new opportunities. How does InHouse Physicians See the Impossible and raise the bar for your clients?
Over the span of three decades, InHouse Physicians has grown consistently by delivering a powerful risk management solution to our clients that satisfies their organization’s duty of care. There has never been a program location or healthcare need that IHP has not been able to fulfill – whether it is the delivery of emergency care on a safari in South Africa, providing a medical safety net for World Cup in 12 South American cities, or responding to an infectious disease outbreak affecting 600 attendees at an annual sales program, InHouse Physicians delivers the “impossible.”
As part of the InHouse Physicians’ journey, we have transformed into a much broader mission – Igniting Human Potential. It is inspired by the belief that every human being is truly unlimited and that stress, bad habits, and limiting beliefs create an environment which affects our performance in life. This belief has been supported by what we have experienced at meetings – attendee stress and burnout leading to poor engagement, illness, and performance. There exists a huge opportunity to leverage the latest research in neuroscience offering a roadmap for meeting professionals to adding significantly more value at their programs. By introducing neuroscience elements, such as mindfulness, nutrition for the brain, and visualization, planners can assist program sponsors in meeting and exceeding their program goals and driving improvements in the bottom line.
What are some of the trends you are seeing related to your business? Or, do you have any new products or services that are creating waves?
There are two primary trends affecting our business, namely, Duty of Care and Human Performance. With the threats to travelers growing, Duty of Care is front and center as a job responsibility of event planners. With the threats to travelers growing, Duty of Care is front and center as a job responsibility of event planners. The need to access and mitigate risk at meetings has never been greater. Of course, our services coincide, as we are a powerful medical risk management tool for high profile programs. A large percentage of sales meeting attendees are responsible for generating most of the revenue and profits for corporations. The performance of these same sales and marketing associates is critical to the success of the organization. As such, the science of human performance is starting to be taken very seriously at corporations. The corporate wellness movement and, more recently, the popularity of corporate mindfulness program are a couple of examples of this trend being put into action. Meeting professionals are ideally positioned to partner with an organization’s sales and human resource departments to develop strategic initiatives to drive human performance at key sales programs. It is time for the role of the professional meeting planner to expand to a more strategic one. Offering meaningful solutions to benefit the organization’s bottom line is a good place to start!
InHouse Physicians’ R-Lounge offers planners a turnkey human performance solution, based in neuroscience, and designed to offer attendees a restorative experience improving well-being, engagement, and performance at programs.
What does Seeing the Impossible mean to you personally? In your role, how are you continuing to bring new, fresh and innovative ideas to forward?
I have struggled in my life with health issues that required me to look outside the normal avenues for answers. These health struggles lead me to a deeper journey into human existence and how our own self-imposed limitations are the primary force holding us back from reaching our true potential. Through my learnings and insights, I have spent more than a decade building a formula for optimizing human performance based on neurobiology. This formula consists of stacking proven, individual neuroscience interventions on top of one other to move the brain closer to a Flow State – a process I have termed as “BioStacking.”
BioStacking leverages the latest knowledge in neuroscience research to improve focus, memory, learning, complex decision-making, creativity, and emotional regulation resulting in dramatic improvements in your personal and professional performance. The key neuroscience interventions included in BioStacking are:
- Focused Attention – meditation to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, relax, and balance.
- Mindfulness – open monitoring to be in the present, live in the now.
- Future Visions – visualization to identify your core dreams, associated purpose, and remove limitations.
- Metacognition – learning to better think, memorize, and analyze.
- Recovery – downtime is productive time and recovery from stress.
When in Flow you not only have a greater capacity for learning, you also have greater interconnectivity and collaboration with others and overall reduced stress – all things that are important to your professional performance and personal life. As corporations continue to invest in the well-being and development of their employees, the neuroscience interventions of BioStacking become the key to satisfying an ever-evolving workforce. This new workforce expects their employers to provide a culture focused on a growth mindset, a holistic set of wellness offerings, and tools to achieve greater performance in the workplace.
The R-Lounge takes several of the elements of BioStacking and seamlessly incorporates them into meetings and events.
