Mindfulness can radically change how you lead a business. Mindfulness now features as part of many leadership and management programmes and is a way of training your mind to be where you want to be.

This Mindfulness Masterclass will provide you with an introduction to mindfulness in the workplace and will be led by Alan Ross from ARK Associates. Alan is an executive coach who set up his company 25 years ago, after a corporate career in the FMCG industry. Alan incorporates yoga and mindfulness into his leadership development work, where his clients include senior leaders from major public and private sector organisations.

Alan is delighted to be joined by Robin Finley from ZF, Peterlee – one of the NEAA members at the forefront of mindfulness and wellbeing at work.
