- MINDFULNESS IN OUR WORKING LIVES -


We spend so much of our lives at work.  As individuals it is important that we approach the inevitable opportunities, achievements, conflicts and challenges with open minds and a healthy outlook. Employers have a complex balancing act in promoting the wellbeing of the individual as well as the performance of the organisation. 


Mindfulness is a proven methodology for enabling this balance. It has already had a big impact on the modern workplace; implemented by some of the most successful companies around, it is increasingly seen as an antidote to modern workplace issues and a way to promote positive wellbeing.


Here, we focus on a selection of the speakers speaking on mindfulness in the workplace at our London event.
