Gillian Coutts
Oscar Trimboli

Gillian Coutts CEO of the Potential Project talks about how “mindfulness” can change your life in really significant ways and change the impact you are having on the people around you both at work and home. Gillian came to a crossroads seven years ago after two very significant events arose in her life – motherhood and cancer. Juggling a senior role at work, motherhood and the debilitating effects of chemotherapy almost brought her to her knees until the practice of mindfulness brought a new perspective and a calm that saved her sanity.
