We worked closely with Kerene from Mindful at Work over a 3 month period.  The team really enjoyed the learnings from the differently themed weekly interactions. It was appreciated that Fujitsu was looking after its employees holistically, by giving them tools to be happier and more stress free across both their working and personal lives.

The mix of leadership qualities and practices with mindfulness was good for maintaining interest across a wide audience from the team.

As a staff engagement program it is excellent, allowing the team members to learn about their colleagues and themselves and equipping the whole team with a skill for the rest of their life. Scott Mortimer

VP Legal & Compliance Oceania, Fujitsu Australia Limited.

Kerene provided a creative and business outcome focused approach to an adaptability (mindfulness) programme. It included a face to face component, followed by short masterclasses over seven weeks.

The overall feedback was very positive, with people practising alternative ways of thinking about and responding to their situations.

I’d highly recommend Kerene’s programme to any organisation considering how to improve adaptability, innovation and well-being in their people.

We commissioned the Mindful at Work course to help the overall well-being and resilience of our team at X4 Consulting. We were exceptionally pleased with the way Kerene interacted with our team. She was thoughtful and positive, and importantly, used scientific evidence to back up  assertions regarding the benefits of meditation. The course was beneficial in many ways, such as: communication; stakeholder management; and the enhancement of the EQ level of our team. Moreover the course was delivered with respect to our busy schedules, spread out over a number of weeks to help absorb the key messages and improve the stickiness of the techniques learned.

Taking Kerene’s course got me into action on something I’ve been meaning to explore for ages. At work I feel more focused, I’m calmer and able to deal with whatever comes up, and I’m sure I’m nicer to be around at home too. Barbara Hinkley

Fuels Product Manager, Z Energy Limited

In our fast-paced world, it’s nice to be able to hit the ‘reset’ button and bring our minds back down to earth. Kerene’s programme has enabled me to do just that, giving order and perspective to my entire life, not just at work. Paul F

Terminal Manager, Z Energy Limited

I felt this course was really well put together, I would not hesitate to recommend it to others! Kate Stachurski

Anonymous participant feedback
• Thank you for a wonderful course – I have totally embraced it.
• I really enjoyed the course and got what I was looking for out of it.
• I find the course has helped me find that space for myself and put me on track to achieve my personal leadership plan.
• Really great course, thanks so much!
• I would really recommend this programme. Kerene really knew her stuff, and was a great presenter. I have felt calmer since starting the programme, and certain things have become much more apparent to me, especially how I am occurring to others, with wearing my busy badge of honour, and not being fully present.
• I think mindfulness is a very important strategy for people to learn and apply both personally and professionally and would recommend this course to anyone!
• Was incredibly valuable. Great program, I have already presented this to my wider team and will try to enrol them sooner.
• Overall course is great and has huge benefits to personal life also.
• The weekly sessions brought it all together and I found the whole thing really effective.
• I loved the programme – it felt like a real privilege to take part and I learnt a lot. I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone – while I certainly haven’t ‘nailed’ practising mindfulness I can genuinely feel an impact on my level of calmness, the choices I make and how I react to things.
• Love it. Worked for me thank you.
• I found the programme fantastic.
• Kerene is an incredible facilitator – she never missed a beat … could not recommend her more highly.
• Kerene was a fantastic facilitator who was never judgmental or demanding and understood the workloads we were dealing with. I would highly recommend her courses to others and would happily take another with Kerene as facilitator.
• This has been a most enjoyable learning experience and an asset to my daily living. Love it thank you.
• Kerene was fantastic! I really enjoyed the in-person session. The course has encouraged both me and my wife to participate in other meditation classes. Well done and thanks!
• I can once again provide very creative ideas to solve complex problems. I can find things easily again.

• Excellent presentation. The meditation was fantastic. Really enjoyed her approach and had me captured right through to Q &A

• Loved the exercise. A lot of what Kerene said just made sense. Learnt a lot. Also liked how she walked around, came out to her audience.

•  Very timely for me in my career to have a tool to refocus and be less reactive. Thanks heaps for sharing.

• Very useful and very thought provoking. I can see I could benefit from this. Great presentation style.

• Awesome. Insightful and valuable.
