The Benefits of Altruism on your Wellbeing and Performance

The Benefits of Altruism on your Wellbeing and Performance
With Jake Curtis (Director of Programmes and Operations, JF)
Name of speakers: Damien Stork
Name of organisation: Chamonix Hard Cross

Chamonix Hard Cross (CHX) has become one of the most significant partners of Jamie’s Farm. Mirroring our residential programme for disadvantaged children, CHX takes high-flying business execs on Alpine experiences. Designed meticulously to improve their performance when they return to work, CHX focuses on four pillars: Nutrition; Sleep; Environment and Exercise. As its Founding Director, Damien Stork leads from the front, and has built into his programme a crucial element from the very beginning: altruism. In this talk, Damien will explain why ‘giving back’ to a greater cause can have benefits to an individual’s own wellbeing and performance in and of itself, and how he tries to persuade wealthy individuals why it’s in their interest to climb mountains on behalf of Jamie’s Farm.
