Oh goodness, we're so excited to meet you all! For our inaugural meetup, we're bringing you an insightful panel of three pros in the #mindfultech space. We'll discuss what mindful technology actually is (and isn't), how to build + use technology in a way that helps us to be more connected to each other instead of to our devices, and what the burgeoning world of mindful technology looks like now–and what will happen as it explodes.
Come connect with fellow #mindfultech enthusiasts and get in on the ground floor as we build this community together!
We'll meet each other, have snacks + drinks, and settle in for a panel with some super smart smarties. See:
YOUR PANELISTS //
Josh Clark :: Principal, Big Medium
Josh is a design leader who helps organizations build products imbued with humane values and intention. "If we don't decide how we want technology to affect our world, the technology will decide for us," he says. "The future should not be self-driving." Josh creates connected devices, mobile apps, and web experiences for companies including Samsung, Time Inc., and many others. Josh is author of several books and speaks around the world about what's next for digital experiences and the people who use them.
Georgia Pettit :: Digital marketing pro for mindful businesses
Georgia is an expert in using tech to digitally market mindful businesses. Her work has run the gamut, with clients ranging from Viacom through the Shambhala Meditation Center, and she'll tell us about her new venture that harnesses the powers of technology and social media to promote more good in the world.
Third Panelist :: TBA soon!
Moderator, Liza Kindred :: Founder, Mindful Technology
Liza spent twenty years working in fashion and in technology, eventually specializing in wearable tech. The more she helped develop technologies to be worn on our bodies, the more she became alarmed about the lack of attention being paid to whether these devices were serving us... or the other way around. She founded Mindful Technology as a way to help us solve these problems, together.

ABOUT LEESA //
At Leesa, we’ve set out to build a different kind of company. We believe everybody needs a good night’s sleep, which is why we designed a mattress that adapts to all body types no matter how you sleep. We value partnerships with brands who share our same mission. We’ve teamed up with Mindful Technology for a night of discussion on how technology can have a positive impact on your health. And of course, provide the opportunity to try the dangerously comfortable Leesa mattress for a better night sleep.
