Today's Powerful Stories Podcast Guest is Jane Martino who has built multiple organisations across the marketing, media, and tech sectors. As well as delivering strong outcomes for shareholders, she focusses on building high performing teams, knowing the key to growing successful businesses is growing their people. Most importantly she understands that working long hours and not being kind to your mind, body and spirit does not create a happy heart.
Martino is also Chair + Co-Founder of the globally recognised tech-based not-for-profit Smiling Mind delivering free online Mindfulness Meditation programs to young people. Since launching, Smiling Mind has over 6 million regular users of its individual program with the education program used by more than one third of Australian educators daily.
Martino’s commercial experience includes Founding and exiting Undertow Media (now Bastion Effect following its sale to the Bastion Group in 2009), and digital platform Shout which was acquired by ANZ Bank where she subsequently held the role of Head of Social Segment.
Her career has led her to focus on mindfulness and the power of this conversation which provides action points for those who are feeling overwhelmed or stressed out is powerful.
