Crosby Wellness Center at the Center for Health & Wellbeing

A collaboration between the Winter Park Health Foundation and AdventHealth, the 80,000-square-foot Center for Health & Wellbeing is dedicated to strengthening the body, mind and spirit. The center features a central Commons where visitors can grab a healthy meal at Nourish Coffee Bar + Kitchen, learn to cook nutrition-rich food at the Nutrition Theatre, meet with a Wellbeing Guide, take a class or get hands-on with interactive exhibits at the BeWell Bar. Outdoors, six distinct gardens surround the center, five of which are designed to stimulate one of the five senses.

The cornerstone of the Center is the Peggy & Philip B. Crosby Wellness Center. Originally built in 1989, the newly renovated 30,000-square-foot medically integrated facility features two pools – a dedicated lap pool and a warmer pool for aquatic exercise and therapy – weight and cardio equipment, locker rooms with saunas, group exercise studios, an indoor walking track and a children’s wellness and childcare area.

The Center also offers a full range of health services, including primary care, specialty health services, an outpatient lab and a pharmacy. This unique combination of health services, together with the Center’s health and fitness amenities, provides a seamless and comprehensive approach to improving health and wellbeing.

Boombah Sports Complex at Seminole County and Exploria Stadium

Join AB Show as we tour two of Orlando’s most impressive outdoor field complexes.

The first stop will be at the Boombah Sports Complex, a 102-acre facility with 15 lighted, tournament-quality fields for softball, baseball, soccer, football and lacrosse. The complex, which hosts a multitude of tournaments every year, also features a large central pavilion for groups, walking paths, batting cages, bullpens adjacent to athletic field dugouts, spectator bleachers with a shade cover at each field, three centrally located concession/hospitality buildings, a playground and an administration building with offices, meeting space and rest rooms.

Next, we’ll head to Exploria Stadium, home to MLS team Orlando City and NWSL team Orlando Pride. The 25,500-capacity stadium, located within walking distance of Orlando’s downtown entertainment district, is in one of the best locations of any soccer stadium in the country. The stadium was designed with the intention of creating the loudest and most intimidating atmosphere in Major League Soccer, with North America’s only safe-standing supporters' section and a low slanted roofline to amplify crowd noise. The field was sunk 8 feet below ground level to offer spectacular views from street level. It also features an expansive 10,000-square-foot fan plaza and an 8,400-square-foot indoor Club.
Cost: $69 (includes reception)

AB Show's workshops get right to the heart of what matters most to you on the job. Workshops are a great opportunity to dig in deep and learn from the experts.


Bold and Courageous Leadership

Many organizations complete strategic or master plans that are designed to provide direction and action. But on average, only 13% of those organizations successfully implement the goals and objectives that are created in the plan. Practicing a form of adaptive leadership gives organizations the tools to mobilize and tackle tough challenges by finding solutions in ways that are outside their comfort zones. It has its roots in altruism, courage, risk, discomfort, business acumen and true engagement within the organization and in the community, as well as on a very personal, individual level for staff. For an organization, it can be a valuable leadership framework that helps teams adapt and find success in environments that are challenging. Understanding and utilizing that framework allows both individuals and organizations to take on the gradual but meaningful process of change and find success in ways they may never have thought were possible.
You’ll learn how to:
• Identify the difference between technical and adaptive challenges.
• Utilize those people most affected by change to guide the path to achieve successful change management.
• Define specific challenges that your organizations are facing and design an action plan to manage.
