Laura Begley Bloom WOMEN@FORBES Transformative Travel: I look at how travel can change lives
When former model, stylist and trend forecaster Gemma Gambee decided to start a business combining meditation and brand strategy, her friends in the fashion industry told her, “That’s just weird. People aren’t going to take you seriously if you're talking about meditation.”
Fast forward two years, and now Gambee is getting hired by companies like Adidas and Ford to help incorporate meditation and mindfulness into brand strategy. She advises entrepreneurs on how to get ahead in business by using these same techniques. She also works with travel brands like the Morgan Hotel Group and Won Dahrma, a Korean Buddhist center where she recently led a women's-only meditation retreat.
