About ASWA

ASWA Founder – Angela Derks

ASWA’s concept of providing roadmaps for wellness in life, workplaces and businesses, are excellent innovations that provide opportunity for leaders, and future leaders, to participate in innovative and valuable development programs.

Skills and strategies for life and leadership are vital for personal sustainability. The leader of any business needs to be a positive role model of balancing life and work priorities for wellness within themselves personally, and within the workplace that they lead. This then filters down through the team and supports the building of a strong, innovative, resilient and collaborative environment that stays on purpose.
