As many of us know bringing mindfulness to workplaces is rewarding and challenging. The context can be very different from a public or health setting. 

Andrew McNeill was a Director in the UK Civil Service leading major projects and programmes, where he introduced mindfulness to his leadership and teams. He learnt through experience what works and what doesn’t when introducing mindfulness to the workplace. 

He brought this experience together in his book ‘Organisational Mindfulness – a how to guide’ (2019) which sets out how an organisation might design, implement and embed a mindfulness programme. 

His pragmatic, practical approach to training has been successful in organisations like GSK, Lloyds Bank and Bart Hospital. 

In this session, Andrew will share his experience and insight on language, tone and approach, with time for questions, on what he’s found successful and what has gone horribly wrong, as well as the ideas in his book.

Who is this event for?

This event is for anyone who is interested in bringing mindfulness into the workplaces. This will include trainers and workplace mindfulness champions.

What participants will gain?

Ideas and insights to help them connect with people in the workplace, to support their training or their advocacy work. They will also have an opportunity to question Andrew about the experiences he has had of workplace training delivery and the ideas in his book.
