She has spoken at Chatham House on how culture and identity impact conflict resolution.
Mia practised EU and International trade law advising FTSE 100 companies for over seven years in the London office of a leading global law firm.

She has also advised industry and international organisations on developing energy efficiency regulation.
Mia is trilingual (fluent in English, French and Italian). She believes in creating Intelligent Change: change that is meaningful, effective and sustainable.

Alongside her mediation and facilitation work, Mia is passionate about sharing the things that have most supported her own development, including meditation and yoga. To this end, she has trained to become a certified health coach, mindfulness and yoga teacher, and developed an online mindfulness programme as well as teaching in some of London’s top yoga studios.
