The Benefits Corner: Episode 16- Stacey Ziebarth



Stacey is a woman of many passions.  She is a business owner, teacher and mother of two.  Through her business’ she has won the Hamilton Spectator Reader’s Choice Award and has been recognized with a 40 under 40 business award. Most recently, she was featured as 1 of 20 women in the Suffragette City photo exhibit to recognize female leaders, role models, mentors and creatives shaking things up in Hamilton.  In an effort to bring more balance to her client’s lives, Stacey has recently become a meditation teacher and opened one of Hamilton’s first Float Therapy studios, Zee Float.  Tune in as we take a deep dive (pun intended) to see what floats her boat (also intended).  My conversation with Stacey was both interesting and fun.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  RB


The Benefits Corner: Episode 15-Ken Bowman, RBC Insurance



Ken Bowman is the Head of Claims at RBC Insurance.  I knew after seeing him speak at a recent event that I had to have him on the podcast.  Ken has a real passion for helping clients through partnering with organizations to create innovative solutions that drive better outcomes. In this episode, Ken shares with us some recent innovations at RBC Insurance.  He talks about how the ONWARD program is making a real difference in the lives of people struggling with mental health issues. Next, he explains how the Medical Confidence program is getting employees back to productive employment much more quickly.  Finally, Ken introduces us to a new Pain Management app that is sure to help both patient and doctor find treatment much more efficiently.  You’ll hear the passion in Ken’s voice as he speaks about these initiatives and you can tell he cares.  For this reason alone, it was a great pleasure having Ken on the show.  I hope you enjoy it.  RB
