Rafael combines 25 years of international corporate experience and mindfulness practice. He has held leadership positions at Fortune 100 companies such as Mastercard and American Express, and he is a Certified Mindfulness-based Emotional Intelligence Teacher from the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute.
He used to be what is called a “closet meditator” keeping his mindfulness practice completely separated from his corporate life, until he realized that the benefits of mindfulness should be shared at work, that’s why he created a mindfulness meditation practice at Mastercard (Latin America and Caribbean Regional Headquarters). Seeing first hand the positive impacts that mindfulness brought to the employees who joined the program, he felt inspired to fully dedicate his career to spread the practice of mindfulness at work.
In November 2017, Rafael founded OnBeing Mindful ([OnBeingMindful.com](http://OnBeingMindful.com)) a leadership training and executive coaching firm focused on providing corporate mindfulness and emotional intelligence based programs grounded in neuroscience and research that lead to sustained peak performance, strong collaboration cultures, effective leadership, and happier workplaces.
Rafael’s unique combination of international corporate experience and solid mindfulness practice allows him to work with organizations of any size to create the proper conditions for all team members to realize their full potential and become who they really are. A working environment, where they can operate with a deep sense of purpose and meaning, where the results are achieved with enthusiasm and work is a real source of personal fulfillment.
