A vibrant and insightful speaker, signature expert Ellen Bartkowiak has been sought by senior-level executives, career changers, MBA programs, and talent recruiters to share her expertise in leadership development and career management.
Every company can point to a handful of days in its history where they appreciably improved, more so than on the typical day. Ellen’s presentation at our annual company meeting is one of those days we point to, where we say, “we became a better company that day.”
The exercises and thoughts that Ellen shared made these difficult ideas learnable and likeable, we see their use now daily. I do not hesitate to recommend Ellen to colleagues; her ability to relate to our staff and contextualize stories and ideas is something for which we are grateful.

Mindfulness is known by some but hard to master, however the benefits to a manager in and outside of work are invaluable. Ellen brings applicable techniques that can be put immediately to use. The open-mindedness and knowledge she brings to an audience is engaging, and fun!
Ali Mears, Plante Moran
The Mindfulness session exceeded my expectation as I was able to gain multiple takeaways that forced me to examine how I personally prepare to manage my day. Ellen was engaging and really knew how to get our group to focus on ourselves in a way that we had not thought of prior to the conference. She was masterful in setting the mood for meditation exercises and effortlessly transitioned the room to energy and exuberance for positive affirmation.
Drew Butts, Group Talent Manager, Enterprise
I didn't know how much I needed and would benefit from mindfulness training prior to attending Ellen Bartkowiak's Mindfulness for Managers workshop. Ellen's presentation style is interactive, informative, and most of all fun. The mindfulness exercises she led us through, including the mindfulness body scan and walking meditation, contributed to my learning and became activities I have participated in upon my return to the office. Ellen's workshop was the highlight of our professional conference, changed the way in which I view stress and presence, and enriched my soul.
