“I truly enjoyed your presentation which reminded me of the importance of also taking care of our mind and emotional side. You know what I liked about it in particular? that it was based on tangible studies, facts and you incorporated the story of the Aetna CEO and your own also.

I hear a lot of presentations meant to be “uplifting” and “motivating” and most are just relating to abstract facts, appealing to stroking our egos and emotions. They don’t do anything for me. I challenged my 2 associates to a daily few minutes of mindfulness for the next 30 days and they took on the challenge, so have I.”
