About our speaker
Louise Chester, founder of corporate advisors Mindfulness at Work, and UK Director of Potential Project
Louise first started practising mindfulness on a daily basis in 1994 when she was a Director at UBS Ltd. She found it helped her have the wisdom and balance in her life to sustain a pressured career in investment analysis and fund management, ultimately as Head of Research and then Global Head of Telecoms and Media for Dresdner RCM. Louise left the City in 2001 to establish a consultancy practice offering financial and strategic advice to business leaders both in the workplace and at Witherdens Hall, her highly acclaimed, holistic Retreat in Kent.
In 2010, she founded Mindfulness at Work Ltd. This award-winning business advisory service, enables people to easily access highly-effective evidence-based mindfulness training, to help them to create value and thrive not just in the workplace, but in all areas of their life. In 2015, Louise also became the UK Partner for Potential Project International, so that senior teams and leaders in the UK could access the world’s leading organisational effectiveness programs based on mindfulness.
Louise delivers workshops, keynote speeches and hosts panel discussions for clients ranging from Ashurst LLP and EY to JP Morgan and the BBC. She works closely with various research organisations and recently co-designed, with Cranfield Praxis School of Management, a randomised, controlled global study which proved a measurable uplift in resilience for participants of Mindfulness at Work’s training.
Having introduced more than 100,000 people to mindfulness in over 200 organisations, Louise and her team are uniquely placed to deliver their award-winning programmes into a wide range of businesses and third sector organisations.
Louise has also contributed to two forthcoming books, ‘Potential Project, Mind of a Leader’ and ‘Conscious Capitalism – the Workbook’. Both to be published by Harvard Business Press early in 2018.
