Mind and Matter 2015 is Europe’s most authoritative and evidence-based event for mindfulness at work.
Mondelēz, Accenture, Hermes EOS and BlueBay Asset Management are just four of the companies meeting in London later this year to share case studies and extend understanding of how organisations can strategically embed mindfulness and get results.
Mind and Matter 2015 takes place on 3rd and 4th December in London’s Dexter House on Tower Hill. Private and Public sector prices are available.
Juliet Adams, Director and innovator at A Head For Work and author of Mindfulness At Work For Dummies, said: “What makes Mind and Matter stand out from the crowd is the speakers. While most mindfulness conferences consist mainly of mindfulness training providers extolling the virtues of mindfulness, the speakers at this conference are principally from organisations, sharing their experiences and best practice with a practical and pragmatic edge. If you are seriously considering mindfulness from an organisational perspective, this is the must attend conference of the year.”
Speakers at the conference include:
- Sarah Braid, Managing Director, Corporate Strategic Initiatives, Accenture
- Julia Freeman, Chief Learning Officer, Mondelēz
- Colin Melvin, Hermes EOS, CEO
- Elizabeth Newton, Talent and Development Consultant, BlueBay Asset Management
- Keynote speaker from the US: Renée Burgard, LCSW, Owner, Mindfulness & Health; Founder, gMBSR/Google, Inc.; MBSR Trainer, Consultant; Mindfulness-based Therapist, Writer, Designer
Key points being addressed at the conference:
- Mindfulness and its evidence base: how does it change the brain and how can mindfulness interventions improve resilience, wellbeing, focus and productivity?
- Building the business case: How can we present an evidence based business case linked to desirable workplace outcomes?
- Scaling-up and sustaining momentum: How can large organisations expand interventions and ensure they live on after the initial excitement?
Evaluation and PR: How can we measure and report back to business leaders?
