Entrepreneur James Wilson, also known as the ‘Sleep Geek’, is set to benefit from the support of a leading health and wellbeing company. Westfield Health has employed James as a Sleep Ambassador, appointed to help staff change their environment and behaviours in order to improve sleep and boost wellbeing.
Following the employee trial, Westfield Health plans to look at how it can work with James to find ways of improving the company’s existing health and wellbeing propositions.
Commenting on the new partnership James said,
“I’m delighted to have the backing and support of such an established health and wellbeing company. The offerings of Westfield Health and what I, as the Sleep Geek, provide are very similar. We’re both dedicated to helping people lead healthier lives and achieve personal wellbeing, and our services both complement the National Health Service (NHS).
Sleep is fundamental to health. When we sleep our bodies have time to heal and repair, and it is crucial for reducing the risk of chronic health conditions. However, due to our busy modern lifestyles and concerns like work and family commitments or financial worries, getting a good night’s sleep is something a lot of people have trouble with. It can be hard to access good sleep support and services when needed and I am passionate about changing this through consultations, coaching, and environment and behaviour analysis.”
James is the third generation of his family to be involved in the production of sleep products. Having trained with The Children’s Sleep Charity, he now helps deliver their services across the UK while also working as a private practitioner and training other healthcare professionals.
“I help people understand the science of sleep, why it is so important, and how to make sure you’re getting it right. I want to offer people increased access to sleep support and solutions, and partnering with Westfield Health is a perfect match for this.”
Commercial Director at Westfield Health, David Capper, said,
“We’re very excited to be working with James. At Westfield Health, we’re committed to supporting businesses like James’ to expand and flourish, working together to help improve the health and wellbeing of the wider population. As part of a new strategy, our new headquarters – Westfield House in Sheffield city centre – includes enterprise hub spaces to support the growth of health and wellbeing start-ups.
We have a real appetite for working with entrepreneurs and small businesses like the Sleep Geek and are keen to partner up with many more going forward. If you would like more information on the types of support we’re offering, do get in touch.”
