2023 Social Impact Breaks Catalogue
MEETINGS WITH PURPOSE.
Build meaningful connections that go beyond the boardroom.
Highly personalized, and always with a giveback that directly benefits a community of your choosing – a social impact break is the new way to engage your attendees.
All experiences listed below are in partnership with Canadian businesses and entrepreneurs.
UPSKILLING AND UPLIFTING:
BRAIN BREAKS THAT BUILD COMMUNITY.
The Art of Storytelling
Come together to upskill in a warm, yet upbeat environment that will deliver knowledge on the fundamentals of storytelling; a skill that will last a lifetime for all participants.
In turn, a skills development workshop will be offered to an in-need group.
Unleash your team’s full potential with a guided session through the scientific benefits of doodling. These mindful experiences help with improving focus, managing change, finding joy, productivity, and more.
Included is a sponsored session for a group of individuals managing trauma.
Uncover Human Design
Where science and spirit meet. Join our expert in a session to learn more about your true self, how your team operates best, and how they can maximize energy and opportunities. Create an environment where strengths and differences are not just realized, but respected and amplified for success.
The give back: individual sessions to support young women entering the workplace.
A MOMENT FOR MOVEMENT THAT RE-ENERGIZES AND REFRESHES.
Drills With Jane
Have a team that’s active and likes to sweat? This class will be the perfect program kick-off. Designed to fit all levels, your attendees will finish strong, capable, and ready to tackle their day.
For each participant, a donation will be made to provide kids across Canada a healthy start.
Pause For Wellness
Hit pause as your group reaches information overload with a bite-sized wellness break designed to get your attendees bodies’ moving, blood pumping, and brains re-energized.
The class will be matched giving the same opportunity to underprivileged children at school.
These meditations are designed around movement. Customized to align with your company’s values, this class is paired with a curated playlist and designed to uplift, reduce stress, and increase creativity.
The mats from each class are new, sanitized after use, and donated to a women’s shelter.
EVENTS WITH HEART THAT PUT YOUR HANDS TO WORK.
The All Heart Market
Our signature event turns your afternoon coffee break into a custom marketplace where your attendees will collaborate, live your company values, and prepare essentials kits for a marginalized group of your choice.
Color is proven to support joy, creativity, and healing. Designed for all levels of experience, this class is a great way to get your teams disconnected from their devices and creating something special together for an in-need classroom.
Happiness happens gathered around the table.
Learn a new recipe, experience a unique tasting, or get your apron on for a culinary experience (on or of off-site) that helps reduce food insecurity across Canada.
FRESH PROGRAMS THAT NURTURE WITH NATURE.
A Breath of Fresh Air
Get out into nature to connect with your team and the great outdoors. Follow expertly guided content that sparks meaningful discussion and fosters growth among your team in a setting that inspires communication and fresh ideas.
For every participant, a donation will be made to EcoTrust Canada.
The Green Room
Let us bring the forest to you. We’ll create a one-of-a-kind green space on-site that elevates all the senses – sight, sound, touch, smell and taste – where your attendees can access curated content and enjoy mindful moments throughout your event.
Greens will be donated to provide to hospitals or homes to uplift and support healing.
Park & Recreation
Accor’s Canadian properties have some pretty cool backyards. In partnership with Parks Canada, we’ll get your team into the National Parks, contributing to stewardship activities that keep these special places thriving and sparkling.
Up the fun factor with a team challenge (swag encouraged!)
“I was first drawn to WholeHearted because they were different in their approach and they were aligned to our value of giving back. I stuck with WholeHearted because the team was exceptional, every detail was taken care of .. they offered a curated experience every time. Time after time WholeHearted has been focused on bringing my teams together in a meaningful way both virtually through the pandemic and in person. I couldn’t imagine creating anything meaningful without this team.”

“First of all, let me just start by saying what a great event and experience you created for us and our team. Everyone loved it and it was exactly what we needed to get everyone together, closer, and engaging outside of our busy busy schedules. Our managing partner and founder was so engaged and even brought his wife into the call to participate. It was very engaging and we loved the contagious energy that put us all in the right state of mind: FUN!!!!”
