About the Speaker: Mallika Kriplani, Founder, The Conscious Zone


Passionate about promoting a community based on awareness and positivity, Mallika is the founder of The Conscious Zone, which brings mindfulness and stress-management solutions into businesses, schools and homes.


As an Acceptance & Commitment (ACT) and Mindfulness Trainer, she works with both individuals and organisations. She runs training sessions for corporate clients and conducts school and public workshops on ACT, the ProSocial Matrix and mindfulness techniques to reduce stress, boost resilience and commit to action through realistic goal-setting. 


Mallika started her career in the reinsurance industry, where she held many highly demanding roles in sales, marketing and business development. She draws on these years of international corporate experience to help clients identify problems and integrate values-based awareness practices in the workplace and at home, to build greater peace of mind and healthier relationships.
