Empowering You

to lead with purpose and change lives


I'm Shelley, Empowering Leaders committed to improving lives.

Speaker on Transformational Change & Peak Performance.

As a specialist in transformational change, I use my knowledge of psychology, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy as well as my early experience running three businesses for my keynotes speeches and in my coaching and workshops – all delivered with a fair dose of humour – to help leaders, CEOs and consultants stand out from the crowd and ‘show up real’.

I know for many business leaders and entrepreneurs, change is a challenge.

But for organisations to succeed in the 2020s, they need to embrace what I call ‘diversity thinking’: a fresh approach to creativity and a commitment to developing a creative, inclusive workplace culture.

An 8-year stint as a stand-up comedian and my own personal transformational change means I’m not one of those personal development or coaching ‘gurus’ you’ll find all over LinkedIn.

Instead, I use humour to connect with business leaders and get my message across, and practical and actionable advice to empower them to embrace change and make a real difference.
