The Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Holding PLC, Demola Sogunle has called on stakeholders to adopt healthy lifestyles to optimises their wellbeing beyond their active work life.
In his welcome address at the recently held “RetireFit 1.0” stated that, at Stanbic IBTC, we recognise that keeping fit is an essential part of your wellbeing journey, hence, our reason for organising this event.
He noted that as the theme implies, “RetireFit” is our attempt to encourage as many people as possible to adopt a healthy lifestyle that optimises their wellbeing beyond their active work life. To us, retiring fit incorporates healthy living, being physically active with strategic financial planning for the future.
Speaking further, Sogunle said their organisation already run virtual Financial Fitness sessions where clients are provided with relevant insights to help them make informed financial decisions, maximise their earnings today and secure their livelihoods in their post work lives.
In his words “It warms my heart to see so many of you logged on to participate in today’s fitness session. On behalf of all of us at Stanbic IBTC, I say a big thank you and welcome.
“We are taking it a step further to give you the opportunity to physically practice some of the health and wellbeing tips we share at those sessions. This we hope will be a clear reminder to pay attention to self care and be physically active just as we mind our money. Our sole desire is to see more people become physically and financially fit, as these two factors contribute to the general health and wellbeing of our clients.
“I am pleased that you have joined this session today and I assure you that you are in for an exciting 50 minutes. First, Kemen Fitness will take us through a hopefully not-too-rigorous workout session to get our blood pumping and afterwards, Kate will lead the conversation with our experts to share tips on optimising our wellbeing and wealth.” he said.
