Here is a taste of Erin's Positive Psychology, Science of Happiness and Mindfulness Workshops
"Erin hosted an EQ and mindfulness workshop as a part of our week of wellbeing at Salesforce, one of several sessions we hosted throughout the week. Her expertise on the topic and sociability resonated throughout the office the entire week and her session was far and away the most impactful session we hosted. Our employees gave glowing remarks and have since implemented many of the practices and mindsets worked on throughout the engagement. Erin has an incredible presence and ability to connect with others, regardless of age, gender, or previous mindfulness habits. Erin has continued her work with several colleagues and has greatly impacted the happiness and wellness of our teams. I'd highly recommend any organization looking for a quick mental and spiritual reset to bring her in!"
-Mike, Salesforce, Chicago
Erin can be booked for a half day or full day of programming or a one-off session. She has shared these workshops with Fortune 500 companies, healthcare institutions, universities and nonprofits. Each workshop is interactive, encouraging group participation to facilitate positive change in the workplace. These workshops can be offered in-person or virtually.
Erin can also work with the client’s wellness or HR team to support regular wellness programs.
"We’ve invited Erin in to present at our annual training/staff appreciation days for 2 years running now. Working as direct caregivers to patients in a world-class academic medical center is stressful and sometimes overwhelming. We want our staff to know that they are appreciated for all they do every day, but more importantly, we want them to know that self-care is just as important (if not more important) than the care we give others. Erin’s presentations on mindful meditation and emotional intelligence were well received and much appreciated by the staff. It bonded us as a team of fellow human beings in ways that no other team building exercises have been able to do. Erin is awesome!"

"Inviting Erin to speak at our offsite was a fantastic decision. Working for a remote company can be isolating, and Erin's exercises and training helped us connect more deeply with each other, and with ourselves. I think many of us got outside our comfort zones, but in doing so, we all raised our conversations, and purpose, to another level."
