At VISTA…

We believe organisations perform at their best, when their people’s total wellbeing needs are met, something which many companies struggle to do well.

Our team of behavioral psychologists, data scientists, doctors, sports scientists, coaches, workplace wellbeing consultants and nutritionists are constantly improving VISTA. Through the latest research, evidence based strategies are implemented – equipping organisations and their people with pro-active, practical wellbeing solutions.

As a result of the Covid-19 global Pandemic

John Brame and Simone Emmett were first introduced (on a video call) in March 2020. Simone, a psychologist and executive coach, was helping John understand his next move after the loss of his businesses at the start of the pandemic.

Whilst working through Simone’s V.I.S.T.A coaching methodology, they ‘clicked’ realising they had a mutual desire to help people to be the best versions of themselves.

Following the London Olympic games, through his background as a professional athlete and successful sports coaching business, John realised that organisations were not measuring the benefits employees received through his work.

Simone having spent years consulting, advising and coaching business leaders and executive boards both nationally and internationally, had seen first-hand the results in increased personal growth, board effectiveness and mental health wealth. However, this focus meant that only a fraction of an organisation’s workforce benefited from the V.I.S.T.A methodology.

The answer to them both, in a new-look, remote working, post-pandemic world was to combine their years of experience, learning, passion and knowledge into a tech platform. VISTA, the result, offers a personalised wellbeing experience to every individual employee allowing organisations to see real-time wellbeing metrics of their workforce, helping drive proactive wellbeing strategies and for the first time no longer relying on purely reactive measures.
