Dennis' Keynotes


Mindful Performance: Lower Your Stress to Perform At Your Best™

When action is strategically informed by a mindful, intentional focus, you and your organization are better able to cut through the noise and clutter to enjoy peak performance. Mindful Performance (MP) makes it possible to find the calm in the chaos. When leadership and employees reduce their stress levels and are healthier and happier, this directly impacts the bottom line of the organization. We call this the “return on mindfulness” (ROM).


“Dennis has been a tremendous asset to our customers and their employees. Stress at the workplace is a given, and employees are hungry for effective, practical ways to bring a calm, mindful presence into the work they do every day. Dennis brings a simple applicable approach to empower employees to tap into their resilience, and we feel fortunate to be able to partner with him!”
