About Martina Sheehan


It all started when...

Martina has a diverse background spanning engineering, human resource management, and organisational change.  Qualifying as a mechanical engineer in 1989, she joined a large infrastructure organisation and worked her way into a senior executive role at a young age. She gained deep insights into leadership and the challenges of complexity and change in the 21st Century, which motivated her to set up the business Reinvention® with co-founder Susan Pearse in 2001. They developed their award-winning program called Conscious Leadership, which was Australia's first mindfulness-based leadership program. They continue to deliver this program to businesses across Australia. These day Martina works with a very select group of international clients who are committed to "thinking differently" about business purpose, success and performance.  

Martina & Susan have co-authored 3 books that translate the emerging brain science into practical techniques for leading better and living more fully. Martina really "walks the talk", and in 2016 she and her husband Phil sold everything and moved out of their Brisbane apartment. They now live wherever they find themselves, whether it be for 1 night, 1 week or 1 month, moving from country to country, and staying in apartments that suit their lifestyle. More than a journey of freedom from stuff, she is exploring why the journey of "letting go" delivers such freedom of mind. You can follow Martina's journey on Instagram @lifewithnobaggage

As the co-Author of 'One Moment Please: It's Time to Pay Attention' Martina will take us through how 'Attention' has become one of the most threatened resources on the planet and how attention spans have shrunk, distractions are growing, and attention is being stolen from the things that matter most.
