Odgers Connect commenced our 2017 speaker series last week over a buffet breakfast with Mindfulness Coach Vanessa Dietzel.
Vanessa began her career with Boston Consulting Group, before pursuing her career as an independent consultant. Today she works extensively with executive teams who don’t want to compromise between high performance and well-being. With organisations like Google, the US military and Transport for London embracing mindfulness practices in their workforce, Vanessa shared how they are reaping the benefits of reduced stress, increased productivity and increased mental resilience.
The group had the opportunity to try a selection of the meditation techniques that can be practically integrated into daily routines. The event was also an opportunity to catch up with friends old and new over coffee, some who hadn’t met in over 10 years.
We look forward to our next breakfast in February on Negotiation techniques with speaker John Viner-Smith, and our continued pipeline of events as we continue to grow Odgers Connect consulting network.
