Our Story

From small startup to global leader in enterprise wellbeing solutions.


LifeSpeak launches, offering a series of workshops and lunch and learns around Toronto.

Michael Held, a lawyer by profession, starts LifeSpeak after seeing his colleagues and friends struggling with stress, burnout, and mental health while trying to balance work with the everyday demands of life. His goal was simple: to provide practical resources and support to help people navigate these challenges with expert guidance


LifeSpeak goes online!

The shift to a SaaS-based model facilitated a significant expansion in scale, allowing us to deliver an extensive array of top-tier mental health and wellbeing resources to individuals across Canada, the US, and around the world.


LifeSpeak impacts more lives through a new partnership model.

We expand our business model by launching solutions that allow partner organizations to seamlessly provide LifeSpeak services to their clients. The same year, we introduce ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions and marathons, giving members instant access to specialists in mental, physical, and family health.


LifeSpeak offerings double in size, with over 100 leading experts, and 1000+ resources.

LifeSpeak achieves a milestone with 1,000 expert-led microlearning videos and resources, covering a diverse range of topics, doubling our total from the end of 2012.


LifeSpeak hits a new high!

Our users engage in nearly 500k video, audio, and tipsheet trainings throughout the calendar year—a remarkable 72% increase compared to the previous year.


LifeSpeak continues to innovate, making it easier than ever to access mental, physical, and family health resources.

We continue to launch product features, including a new email system designed for client communications. The new email system improves employee communication of benefits and allows for the seamless rollout of quarterly educational campaigns covering mental, physical, and family health topics.


LifeSpeak secures a $42 million equity investment to expand product features and pursue new markets.

We broaden our educational content to include expert blogs, guided meditation and mindfulness exercises, and quizzes. We also launch The LifeSpeak Podcast, and make it available on all major podcast platforms.


LifeSpeak goes public and acquires three new companies.

The summer IPO is followed by three strategic acquisitions that expand our offering of SaaS-based physical wellbeing, substance use, and family caregiving solutions: LIFT session, ALAVIDA and Torchlight. We achieve a revenue milestone of $23.3 million, reflecting a 131% increase from the previous year, and expand our client base to a total of 422 enterprise clients.


LifeSpeak acquires popular fitness provider Wellbeats and doubles client base.

LifeSpeak expands its offerings by acquiring Wellbeats, a market-leading on-demand SaaS-based physical wellbeing platform provider, propelling our pro-forma ARR to $54.7 million and doubling our client base to over 800 enterprise organizations.


LifeSpeak launches a new brand.

After completing a series of acquisitions of leading wellness companies, we proudly unveiled a new brand identity that unites our suite of wellbeing products. Under the banner of LifeSpeak Inc., our comprehensive suite of solutions now includes LifeSpeak Mental Health & Resilience, Torchlight Parenting & Caregiving, Wellbeats Wellness, LIFT session Fitness, and ALAViDA Substance Use.
