Connecting with people on stage and igniting them with thought-provoking ideas about mindfulness, mental health, wellbeing and mindset strategies in a vibrant way is my passion.
I speak to empower my audience by providing them practical and scientifically tested tools to enhance their quality of life and perform at their best. I create and deliver impactful keynotes with your specific needs in mind.
My speeches are well researched, engaging, fun and include practical tips to help the audience shift their mindset and transform limiting beliefs. I don’t take this responsibility lightly and do everything I can to deliver with excellence!
Jon led a mindfulness session with our team in November 2019 as part of our conference. Leading up to the conference, we worked on ideas that would suit our team. He was very open to ideas and very quick in coming back with a session outline. Jon presented very well, is well-spoken and leads from his heart. Our team got a lot out from the session and is implementing some of his practical takeaways in the workplace and home. Jon exceeded my expectations on what he brought to our conference.”
Jon delivered a Mindfulness Workshop at the recent Australian Counselling Association National Conference, held in Sydney. Feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive; his knowledge, understanding and effort were well regarded by all attendees. I look forward to working with Jon in the future!
Jon provided two Mindfulness sessions to some of our staff, as part of QLD Mental Health Week. These sessions received unanimously positive feedback. We are keen to get Jon back to provide mindfulness training to our Peer Support Officers in the near future. Jon was the consummate professional with a great sense of humour and unfaltering calmness – it was clear that he really practices what he preaches when he was able to improvise without a hitch when our technology wouldn’t allow him to use his laptop/PowerPoint. Thank you again Jon for your time, knowledge and expertise.

Mindfulness and Mindset Coach
I am Jon Unal, founder of Conscious Beginnings, a company that supports organisations with wellbeing, emotional intelligence, performance and engagement through evidence-based mindfulness training. I am also an associate of Mindfulness Works Australia, one of the leading mindfulness training organisations in Australia and New Zealand.
Over the years, I supported hundreds of people and companies to achieve their visions and aspirations by becoming more self-aware, resilient, confident and courageous.
The beginning of my mindfulness practice in 2006 has been a turning point from living a stressful life to creating a life on my own terms.
I have been on a personal development journey since then: completing graduate qualifications in applied psychotherapy and counseling, training in various modalities such as ACT, mindfulness and neuroscience. I also hold a master’s degree in economics.
Conscious Beginnings team has developed and implemented a wide range of mindfulness and corporate wellbeing programs for some of the leading organisations including the Australian Counselling Association, BHP, Credit Union Australia, Sanofi, QSuper, Queensland Health, Queensland Police Service, Rio Tinto, Volvo and Toyota Australia.
Today, I serve organisations and individuals as a mindfulness & mindset coach, corporate trainer, keynote speaker and psychotherapist, with a mission to empower them to step into their full potential and living an inspired & vibrant life.
