But what is it and how does it benefit the workplace?

Dr. Geoff Soloway, a PhD in mindfulness and Co-Founder and Chief Training Officer at MindWell-U, will discuss the science of mindfulness, the evidence base behind it, and how and why it has progressed to the workplace.

Dr. Soloway has worked with a number of prestigious organizations in developing and implementing mindfulness and mental health strategies including WestJet, Coca-Cola, and the NBA.
