Public Talk Title: Smiling Mind on Creating a Mindful Generation

Speaker: Dr. Addie Wootten

The Smiling Mind app was launched in 2012 and now has more than 1.7million downloads and 23,000 educators using the programs in classrooms across Australia. What has resonated to create such engagement and momentum? Dr Addie Wootten, the CEO of Smiling Mind will talk about the Smiling Mind experience - the challenges of a small start-up non-profit, the impact of the Smiling Mind programs and the potential to create a mindful generation.

Dr Addie Wootten is the CEO of Smiling Mind and a Clinical Psychologist by background. Addie joined Smiling Mind about 18 months ago and has led the release of a new brand, a new technology platform and new research evaluating the impact of the Smiling Mind programs. Smiling Mind has seen significant growth over the last 18 months - we have reached over 1.7 million downloads and we're now supporting more than 23,00 educators to bring mindfulness into their classrooms in schools across Australia, and internationally. We're also working with hundreds of businesses to bring mindfulness into their workplaces and in 2016 we took our program to the global market with a partnership with IBM in the US. 2017 looks set to be a big year for Smiling Mind!

Addie brings her extensive background in clinical psychology, research and e-health to her position of CEO of Smiling Mind. Addie is a well-known leader in her field. Prior to joining Smiling Mind Addie delivered and researched innovative programs to enhance the wellbeing of people with cancer. She has developed and evaluated a range of online wellbeing tools, and has published widely.

Addie has been using mindfulness meditation as a part of her clinical psychology practice for many years, and also has a strong personal mindfulness practice.
