mindfulness speaker for leadership conference

Katie Sheen at the Master Innholders’ 25th Hotel General Managers’ Conference at The Connaught Rooms, London

I first met Katie when she was a mindfulness speaker for a leadership conference that I attended. She spoke with such authority but in an incredibly calm and inclusive way that she drew in the whole room of 400+ senior business leaders.

I invited Katie to facilitate a mindfulness workshop and not only was it incredibly popular with the team (standing room only!) but I could see the results straight away in the change in our team. Katie now visits every few weeks to help us embed mindfulness into our culture as the benefits had been significant, particularly in how it has affected leadership and communication in the team.

Katie is just fab! I’ve been to several of her regular & one-off events and I have loved every one. In particular, the Mindful Eating course in Stockport was a revelation. I went expecting “eat slower” “focus on flavour” etc but instead I got so much more. It was an emotional and revelatory exploration of our relationships with food and about self-care. I cannot recommend it enough.

Jennifer Samuel-Bryan a review on Facebook

I have attended many of Katie’s nutrition based lectures as part of the Lamberts Healthcare Seminar Programme and each one has been thoroughly engaging, extremely informative, with key take-away points that can be implemented in practice immediately. She has a vast array of knowledge and is able to translate complex scientific research into understandable, easy to grasp concepts.

She has a great capability to hold the audience’s attention, whilst being able to generate an interactive discussion and Q&A session. Katie’s passion for other’s health and wellbeing shines through, endeavouring to share her valuable knowledge to enhance peoples lives. I will certainly continue to attend Katie’s seminars and have also recommended my own clients to her mindfulness online site to engage in meditation and appreciation.

Katie is a fantastic teacher and a truly lovely person. I have tried meditation a number of times over the years but never been able to make it stick. Katie manages to present the techniques and teachings so clearly and in a way that makes them accessible to all, even the initially cynical! It’s certainly made a big difference to my life. Thanks Katie.🙂

Thanks again for the ‘Discovering Mindfulness’ session. Thought I would just share some of the actual comments from the team:

I thought this was fantastic!

Gave me more of an insight into myself than I thought.

Keen to purchase the books and maybe enjoy living a bit more!!

Me and my friend are going to look at the retreat!!!

I really enjoyed all of the breathing sessions and would definitely take some of this with me into work and personal life.

We can use the breakout idea in reception when we have a difficult call: to just take a moment to breathe.

It was an eye opener for me.

I was not much for the mindful walking bit as not my thing, but the rest was a surprise to me – had my doubts before the session but so glad you sorted it for us.

I think this (although only short) taught me a valuable life skill. It has educated me to look at my thought process and overall outlook on life. I left feeling positive, grateful and able to concentrate on the now. Has left me wanting more.

The mindfulness sessions have I attended have been excellent and really well managed, enabling me to get the best out of each week’s hour.

For me the value is being able to take the time out and reflect, and also to recognise “being in the moment” and not “charging” to the next thing. The mix from a cross section of the business has also helped to get a range of views and has broadened the sessions.

I was introduced to Katie by a friend & attended a couple of her local workshops in Mindfulness techniques. Listening to her describe her experiences with such honesty was a breath of fresh air & she recommenced some great reading to support her work.

This led me to undertaking a 6 weeks mindfulness course with Katie & her colleague which I can honestly say changed my world. Mindfulness is now such an important part of my life & I am lucky enough to be able to share the habits with others in my work.

I am so grateful to Katie that our paths crossed at a time when I was needing to make big changes. Katie helped me to find the confidence I needed, supported me with guidance & naturally shares her empathy as well as her skills as a mentor & mindfulness teacher.

I honestly feel that she was the missing part in a jigsaw I had been trying to complete for many years, she helped me to put the pieces together and see the picture as a whole.

Katie Sheen is a highly gifted lecturer and speaker and brings clarity and vitality to any topic that she talks about. She has a rare ability to take apart complex concepts and strip them back to their basic component parts and re-present them in a much easier-to- grasp way.

In addition to bringing clarity and understanding for her audience, she has a delightful personal presentational style, which brings lightness, humour and humanity to what could otherwise sometimes be dry or difficult material.

She definitely ‘adds value’ in spades – bringing a wonderful, accessible intelligence which does not confuse or bamboozle (which sadly is often the case) and a personal delivery style which makes her events delightful, and uplifting to attend.

Katie taught part of our Nutritional Therapy diploma course and she is an extremely engaging and knowledgeable teacher. She manages the difficult task of combining scientific rigour with an innate understanding of the human condition – for me, she has the perfect balance of science and mindfulness techniques which I aim to put into practice now I am qualified.

Katie has an amazing energy and aura, she brings calm to a room the moment she walks in!

I’ve also used her Happiness Calendar which helped me through a very stressful time by giving me head space and perspective – I would highly recommend it to anyone. I honestly can’t recommend Katie highly enough, she is a true inspiration!
