Rasmus Hougaard is the world's leading expert on Corporate Mindfulness. He will share the results of his 2-year research with Harvard Business Review, and the need for leaders to build three core mental qualities: Mindfulness, Selflessness, and Compassion.

Study after study show that employees are more disengaged than ever. 82% find their leader uninspiring, 65% would fire their CEO rather than receive a pay raise...
How can leaders truly engage their teams in the age of distraction and distrust? How can they build organizations that unleash extraordinary performance?

During this intimate dinner-conference at Maison des Polytechniciens, Rasmus Hougaard will walk us through:
- How to train our mind to develop Mindfulness, Selflessness and Compassion
- How to effectively unlock our full leadership potential by being more grounded and authentic, with inspirational stories from CEO's of McKinsey, Marriott, Heineken...
- How to use simple tools and techniques just at our fingertips

Join us to find out what mindfulness really means, what it has brought to leaders in organizations such as Accenture, Microsoft, McKinsey, L'Oreal, Danone and hundreds of Fortune 500 across the world, and what it can bring to you.
