Kerene Strochnetter is the Managing Director of Mindful at Work, a business hell-bent on making the M-words cool in the workplace - mindfulness and meditation. She’s also a sort after public speaker with a clear message - if busy is the new stupid, then mindful is the new smart! Karen wants to get the message out: that mindfulness isn’t just limited to meditating but includes a set of robust well-researched practices, which when implemented, powerfully impact people’s lives and positively change workplace culture. Her new book ‘Crazy Busy’ targets people suffering from the relentless pace of modern life - people who struggle to switch off and are looking for effective strategies to help to reconnect with what really matters - their lives, their work, and the people close to them. Karen's professional background includes Registered Nurse, Principal Lecturer, Academic Leader, Executive Coach, Career Management Consultant, and Mindfulness Teacher. She holds both undergrad and post-graduate degrees but believes academic qualifications are terribly overrated. She’s more interested in who you are as a person and you become the best you can be. Kerene has two adult sons and two grandsons. She enjoys minimalist apartment living, walking along the waterfront in the fabulous city of Wellington, writing, yoga (a bit of a fanatic really!), reading, movies, spending time with her family, and sharing good coffee and excellent red wine with her friends. She has a passion for nice shoes and is known (somewhat infamously) for her shoe collection.
