Building a business case for mindfulness
Forgather co-founded London’s first Mindfulness Summit with Calmworks. Stylish east London venue The Trampery opened its doors to 100 business leaders and HR Directors from companies such as BBC, Pret a Manger, IKEA, Linklaters and Harrods who were looking to explore mindfulness and build it into their company culture.
As producer and co-creator we took the event from concept to delivery. This included shaping the agenda, initiating partnerships to drive attendance, event marketing and recruiting speakers from the likes of BBC, Google Ventures and Entrepreneur First. We also took care of all the finishing flourishes – from hand calligraphed name badges to olive trees.
“I just wanted to thank you for an astonishingly good conference. It had all the magic ingredients - a wonderful ambiance in a cool space with simply beautiful touches...It's the first conference I have ever been to (and believe me I must have attended hundreds by now either as attendee or speaker or panelist) where I felt uplifted, relaxed and energised as I left. I think you made a lot of people happy today and fostered the conditions for both learning and inspiration. Thank you.’”
