I do training in mindfulness to improve focus, effectiveness and performance in organizations. I am part of a global company that has been doing this in  law firms, hospitals and corporations like Google, Sony, and Accenture.  We have a specific keynote and/or workshop geared to the legal profession.  Would love to offer this at a local or national meeting.
