Wine & Wellness Reception at the Women's Leadership Conference
Friday, June 16, 2017 6:35 AM

Women's Leadership ConferenceThree-fourths, or 75 percent, of U.S. employers ranked stress as their top health and productivity concern. Stress is expected to cost the U.S. economy more than $300 billion dollars this year alone. The key to reducing workplace stress may lie in understanding the value of mindfulness of leaders and their teams.

That's why this year's Women's Leadership Conference is hosting a Wine and Wellness Reception and Expo for its attendees. In this 45-minute interactive session, we will experience together how to:

  • Define mindfulness and look at an overview of its health benefits
  • Practice mindfulness and change your brain for the better—neuroplasticity
  • Understand the bottom line of mindfulness at work
  • Mindful leadership equates to employee engagement
  • Practice guided, personalized mindfulness exercises
  • Learn new skills you can begin practicing today

Join health and wellness speaker Melissa Marks Garner for her session, "Mindfulness at Work:  What It Is and Why It Matters." The Wellness Expo is sponsored by "Happy Employees Happy Members" during a special networking time.

Melissa Marks Garner is a licensed professional counselor, board certified art therapist, and certified yoga instructor. Since 2005, she has conducted hundreds of sessions to a broad range of audiences, including business professionals, health care professionals, and cancer survivors, while operating her business as a corporate wellness consultant.
