Would you like a bespoke mindfulness webinar or workshop to deliver simple, realistic and achievable mindfulness strategies for your specialist audience?
Companies around the world are now using mindfulness to build and support a healthy, relaxed, open-minded, unified and positive workforce. A wide range of research studies have proven the specific benefits of mindfulness within organisations, including:
Reducing stress, anxiety and depression
Reducing costs of staff absenteeism and turnover
Embracing change and supporting creative thinking
Improving concentration, memory and learning ability
Enhancing communication skills, hence improving employer/employee and client relationships
Katie always takes time to listen carefully to the challenges that your workforce are facing, and then develops a bespoke solution that includes practical, realistic and easily achievable mindfulness techniques that are specifically designed to help you and your colleagues to flourish.
Katie has been running corporate workshops since 2012, for companies large and small. These have included Adidas, Barclays, Barclaycard, Deloitte, Greater Manchester Police, Equity Housing Group, Borough Care and Magnox. Some are one-off wellbeing events whilst others are series of workshops, and she has been offering weekly mindfulness classes for Sellafield employees since 2018.
Thanks to her nutritional qualifications she is particularly well placed to deliver an introduction to Mindfulness and Mindful Eating, a popular subject to include as the nutritional component of corporate well-being strategies.
Conferences have included the Master Innholders 25th Hotel General Managers’ Conference ‘The Spirit of the Time’, the Northern Counties Society of Osteopaths Annual Conference, and regular appearances at The Mindful Living Show since this landmark event first began. Whether it’s one or more breakout workshops or a main stage appearance, Katie enjoys the collaborative nature of integrating the content of her sessions into the key themes of your event.
Since founding the brain cancer charity Astro Brain Tumour Fund in 2001, charities have played a particularly significant part in Katie’s life and she is always keen to help where she can. She has therefore offered both conference appearances and webinars to a range of charities, including Brain Tumour Support and Heart Valve Voice. Since April 2020 she has also provided support to UK Primary Care Health Professionals on a fortnightly basis within the COVID-19 Primary Care Support Web Meet.
“Katie came on board with our programme to help support valve disease patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, a challenging period in many of their lives, and delivered a brilliant workshop tailored to suit the specific needs of our patients. In a short space of time she was able to curate an engaging workshop that gave patients of varying abilities practical tools to help manage their own mental wellbeing.
Her workshops not only tell you how to use mindfulness but also explain the mechanics of why it works, giving a rounded understanding of its use to the individual. In addition to this, the resources she has developed on her website offer the mechanisms for continued engagement and support for our patients after the workshop.
Katie is a wonderful person and presenter, and we’re very glad she came on board with our programme.”
Callum Ferguson, Head of Content Heart Valve Voice (registered Charity)
Health and Wellbeing is high on our agenda to ensure our people are adequately educated and live long and happy lives. We wanted an external consultant to run a programme for our leadership and advisor population, Katie came highly recommended and certainly lived up to our expectations. We embraced her calming presence and positivity.
In very interesting and ‘penny dropping’ sessions it brought to life that how we look and feel is down to our diet and mindset. Simple and easy changes are so impactful and nearly 2 years on, the legacy of the sessions is still embedded. So many colleagues have made small and significant lifestyle changes. We loved the approach of face-to-face sessions, videos, open days and links/access to great information.

I asked Katie to speak at our Health and Wellbeing Day in June and was so impressed. With a unique presentation style, Katie was able to immediately engage with the audience and delivery a powerful presentation that made you ask why Mindfulness was not on the agenda of every business. The feedback from staff following Katie’s presentation was some of the best we’ve ever witnessed!
We will definitely be using Katie to speak at future events.
