I am a mindful leadership advisor, executive coach, mindfulness & meditation teacher, author and public speaker. I am the Co-Founder of Profuse29 (www.profuse29.com) which introduces mindfulness and mindful leadership to organisations and individuals. My first book The Authority Guide To Mindful Leadership will be released in April 2017.
I offer meditation and mindfulness as a way to hack your neurobiology and increase self-awareness, which is the first step to self-mastery. My aim is to empower my clients to live with more presence, inner peace, gratitude and love for life - I teach with passion, sensitivity and insight, gained from years of personal practice and professional training. My clients include CEOs, creatives, philanthropists, global multinationals and start-ups.
In addition my volunteering work at St Joseph´s Hospice and Mind Charity gives me a unique perspective on living life right NOW with a sense of urgency and meaning.
As I care deeply about the transformational power of mindfulness practice, I feel grateful to be frequently asked to speak about mindfulness in the workplace and mindful living. I have recently been hosted by the London School of Economics, The Fiorucci Art Trust, Second Home and The Soho House Group.
Before making my passion my profession in 2014, I was trained as a lawyer, spent some time in strategy consulting and worked ten years as a board-level executive search consultant (Principal level) with two of the world’s leading executive search firms Heidrick & Struggles and Korn/Ferry International in Europe and Asia.
I have over a decade´s worth of experience in advising and coaching top CEO´s, boards and investors on senior leadership and people issues.
I was initially introduced to yoga 20 years ago and deepened my meditation and mindfulness practice while living in Asia. Mindfulness helped me to remain calm, focused and happy while juggling a demanding and hectic global 24/7 schedule as a board-level headhunter.
This inspired me to create a business that combines coaching and meditative wisdom and techniques to empower CEOs, founders, emerging leaders and high potentials to access their full potential even or particularly when under pressure. As a result I embarked on a 2 year part-time BWY certified yoga and meditation teacher training (at Triyoga, the UK’s leading Teacher Training programme) while still working full-time as a junior partner in a global executive search firm. I subsequently also qualified as a certified Mindfulness-based Awareness Coach (recognised by the Association for Coaching) and Mindfulness-based Interventions Teacher (MITT) after Jon Kabat-Zinn (recognised by the UK Mindfulness Teacher Trainer Network). I also attended courses in positive psychology and neuroscience. Over the past three years I have introduced meditation to start-ups, global multinationals, creative businesses and the government. In addition I have used mindfulness and meditation to help C-Suite individuals and start-up founders to access more of their leadership potential and creative genius.
