WW Gays, Jean-Luc & Nick

Jean-Luc & Nick had made several attempts to live a healthier lifestyle throughout their relationship, starting just before their wedding in 2011, and again a couple of times after. Only when a doctor diagnosed them both with some potentially serious issues in  2017 did the two decide they needed to make some changes for good. Now, with their own YouTube channel, a broad following of other WW members, Jean-Luc and Nick continue their journey, having lost more than 200 lbs together. 


Jean-Luc & Nick will be Emcees for the event, as well as present their own story.

Harriette Schumacher

Harriette Schumacher is an Executive Coach, a Nova Scotian and a parent. Her company "Big Leap Leadership" was created after her and her spouse lost their jobs. With a dream and a laundry room, the first office space for her company was created. Now, she works with companies like NS Power, Ford Motor Co and the Province of Nova Scotia to help employees claim opportunities and remove obstacles. If she can help entire organizations, imagine what she can do for you to help identify strengths and use introspection to forge a clearer path to achieving your goals.

WW Member Melanie Bennett

WW Member, Melanie Bennett looks like a successful, active, fit outdoor enthusiast. She is all of those things. Ms. Bennett is also an MS patient who needed a cane to walk, when she was 100 lbs heavier. Hear how her mindset around healthy behaviours replaced the number on the scale for her long term success, and personal transformation.
