"Shane's ability to engage, connect and create an energy in a virtual environment was so impressive. His research and insights, backed by with storytelling and humour was a simple and effective way to impact in the session. I have been hosting HR SEEN events for 2 years and Shane's session was an absolute standout for me. We look forward to working with you again in the near future."
Jacqui Ryland, Client Solutions Manager
"Shane is just the master of turning something which could be quite dry into something that’s really fun!"
Angela Barton, Head of HR, SIXT Australia
"The energy was electrifying in the room and every time that he comes he brings something new that you can take and that you can implement straight away. We’ve had a range of people reach out and ask ‘how can I get more from Shane’ and so we’ve implemented more programs that have sold out immediately. Shane is somebody who you can get more and more out of the more he understands your organisation."
Dan Hillier, Head of Health and Partner Engagement – Terry White Chemmart
"I was at a conference where I was speaking after Shane. I like the person before me to not be very good, because then I look great. And I was watching him and thinking I am in serious trouble. This guy is really funny, really clever, there are a million take outs, he’s really interactive with the audience, he’s absolutely brilliant!"
Maz Farrelly, Award Winning Keynote Speaker
"I had the pleasure of working with Shane at the Public Sector Comms Leaders conference where I saw him speak. Not only is Shane exceptionally entertaining as a speaker, but he is also extremely informative. As someone who works with coaches and speakers on the day-to-day, I couldn't recommend Shane more. He was the highlight of the conference."
Helen Turnbull, Production Manager
"Shane stepped in to MC the first day of the People Leaders in Retail event I was organising and he was simply fantastic! Before the event he was amazing to work with - efficient, helpful, friendly and even helped me fill a very last minute speaker gap that came up (who was also fantastic). He's very adaptable and almost nothing was too much for him to help with! He ended up leading a leadership roundtable at the event also, which was one of the most well-attended roundtables at the event. He's clear, energetic and passionate - all round, a pleasure to work with."
