on june 26 and 27, i’ll be in boston to talk about hotseat, the workplace wellness tool i created to help employees defeat “sitting disease.”

hotseat makes it fun, easy and manageable to take two-minute activity breaks throughout the day. employees and their guests use hotseat’s app to create personalized activity break schedules, kick off group challenges and monitor their progress. for employers, hotseat offers fully branded launch communications and an employer portal for tracking use, managing users, running reports, and more.

last year i spoke at games for health and shared the vision for hotseat and a prototype. this year i’ll continue the story, sharing twists and turns along the way to the pilot currently being run with the american heart association (AHA).

on wednesday, june 26 at 4:00 pm, i’ll discuss the decisions and trade-offs one makes getting an app to market. then on thursday, june 27 at 4:00 pm, i’ll co-present with kristi durazo, a senior strategist with AHA. we’ll review AHA’s pilot, including early user statistics. (we’re joining a session with zombies, so we have no idea what might go down!).

the games for health conference is now in its ninth year. the lineup of speakers includes researchers and game developers from tech startups to more mature organizations. this year, the conference focus has expanded to include sections on global health, enterprise wellness, business development and market briefings.

hope to see you there!
