‘Beth’s workshop: ‘Mindfulness – the Power of Attention’ was a great introduction to how mindfulness can help our senior managers learn new ways to support their resiliency at work and home. Her description of mindfulness as ‘brain fitness’ was a great introduction to the latest benefits, research and the possibilities of practice of mindfulness. Participants learned a few practical tools and approaches they can begin to apply in their day to day life that may ultimately lower stress and enhance decision making in our fast paced and often hectic environment. Thank you Beth!’

‘The timing of meeting Beth couldn’t have been more perfect. Our industry had been greatly impacted by the stock market crash in 2008. After years of challenges we were over stressed. In order to avoid burnout, change was needed. With confidence and ease, Beth gained a firm understanding of our business environment and implemented an effective Mindfulness plan, which has sustainably reduced our stress and increased efficiency. Our work family has appreciated Beth’s ability to adapt to our different personalities, always delivering her knowledge with grace, kindness and humour.’

Beth did a great job de-mystifying the benefits of mindfulness in the workplace.
Her solid background combined with warm and reassuring approach really resonated with my team of engineers and programmers. She gave us several great suggestions on how to explore mindfulness at work, & skillfully shared practices we could do solo or as a group – both at home and at work. Her workshop gave us all another way to approach stressful situations & enhance communication. Very cool!’

Beth is exceptionally charismatic, knowledgable and helpful in sharing her expertise on this topic. She engaged the audience with her insight on best practices and used supporting scientific research and frameworks to make the content meaningful. She provided the group with tactical recommendations and tools on how we, as female leaders in a fast paced and multi- faceted environment, can use mindfulness to make better decisions and maintain our peak performance levels- all while remaining true to ourselves.’
