Thank you… 

To Christine May, who has provided administrative support for MINDFUL EMPLOYER for near 10 years. MINDFUL EMPLOYER would not have grown so much without Chris’ dedication and enthusiasm for her role and she has enabled that growth to run smoothly from an administrative point of view, especially for all the Charter signatories with whom she has regular contact. We will miss her and wish her well in her retirement.

A successor has been appointed and will be starting in a few weeks’ time. We hope to have a temporary replacement in post soon but in the meantime please direct any admin queries to and any training or workshop enquiries to 

Thank you also to the 300 or so people who visited our stand at the recent Health & Wellbeing at Work Conference. We were delighted with the level of interest shown.
