Our CEO, Carolyn Taylor, was guest speaker last week at a very special symposium hosted by our partner, Mindfulness at Work, and JP Morgan. Other speakers included Arianna Huffington, Mindfulness at Work’s Louise Cox Chester, president of the Mindful National organisation, Krinsha Pendyala, clinical psychologist, Dr. Chris Irons and David Pearl.
Arianna Huffington speaks at the Mindfulness at Work symposium, Southbank, London, 24th September 2014.
CAROLYN: "I started my career teaching mindfulness. Since then, I've always maintained it as a personal practice. It was not something I ever shared through my work helping clients to change culture. After spending an evening with Arianna Huffington, I felt the time had come to be bolder in the quest to build mindful organisations, with mindful leaders.

More self-awareness. A greater ability to witness one’s own behaviour. These are the gifts of mindfulness. To loosen the grip of habits is to provide oneself with choice.
