Get coverage for expensive health setbacks so you can focus on getting better.

AIA Global Ambassador David Beckham raised the bastion of health and wellness through the recently concluded online gathering, “AIA Live”. Breaking past physical distance through the AIA YouTube channel, local celebrities joined the world-famous athlete in promoting the AIA brand promise of helping people live Healthier, Longer, and Better Lives. Some of AIA’s longtime partners such as Tottenham Hotspur football coaches Anton Blackwood and Shaun Harris; chef Jeremy Pang; and AIA Philam Life ambassadors Nico Bolzico, Mond Gutierrez, Anton Del Rosario, and Wil Dasovich each had respective segments to tackle exercise and nutrition, relationships, mental wellness and even parenting.
“We know our audiences are online now more than ever before and are looking for new ways to stay motivated, active, and live a healthy lifestyle – often within the confines of their own home,” said AIA Group Chief Marketing Officer, Stuart Spencer. “We are therefore very excited to be presenting AIA Live, a first of its kind event, which was a day of powerful and inspiring content and a meaningful way for us to deliver on our commitment to helping people live Healthier, Longer, Better Lives.”
The event opened with Beckham – whose lockdown with his family in the UK countryside has pushed the football star towards quarantine hobbies baking and gardening – on Sunday morning. After a short introduction, AIA Vitality ambassador Dr. Jaime Lee led hundreds of viewers with a simple breathing technique all the way from her home in Australia. There was strong focus on exercise and physical wellbeing throughout the event, from numerous ball-handling challenges from the Spurs coaches to a session with Almen Wong, founding teacher from Pure Yoga in Hong Kong. Kids were not exempt from the activities, with fitness expert Kevin Zahari of Malaysia giving tips on how parents can do exercises with their children.
On a Wellness Talk Show with fellow AIA Philam Life ambassadors, Nico Bolzico also briefly discussed parenting in the new normal. “It’s the first time we all face a worldwide pandemic,” says the Argentinian national, “but it makes us stop and look around where we’re standing, what is really important in life.” Entrepreneur Mond Gutierrez, football player Anton Del Rosario, and content creator Wil Dasovich each went around talking about what keeps them positive during challenging times in a lighthearted banter among friends.
“One of the most positive things I’ve seen during this time is how communities have come together to support each other and how kind people have been,” Beckham reflectively said on the lessons of this pandemic. “We have all been so fortunate and grateful to the frontline workers who have gone above and beyond, but it’s also small gestures by neighbours and friends which has made a huge difference.” Indeed, in each their own ways, these AIA ambassadors and partners championed a cause for better health in all aspects of living, through stories and experiences, even from just being at home.
“I hope that sense of community and care for those less able continues even after this pandemic,” said Beckham.
