Hi, I'm Shevonne.
Try explaining all that I do uber fast 5 times after a couple of wines! Luckily I think ‘elevator pitches’ are a waste of time for those of us truly wanting to connect with each other.
Who is this woman unapologetically throwing herself out there in the world? Many of you have asked to hear more about who I am beyond what I do so let's get acquainted.
By my very nature, I’m completely juxtaposed – a dreamer, yet pragmatic. Strong willed, yet gentle. Savvy, yet heart centred. A deep thinker, yet quick to make decisions. Intelligent, yet I still struggle to figure out Instagram (have you heard the Sheryl Sandberg story? Ask me about it next time we’re chatting). Courageous, yet conservative. Outspoken, yet introverted. Serious, yet love a good laugh. A (recovering) perfectionist, yet organised chaos… Because I love biting off more than I can chew in life, sauce dripping down my chin (you only live once, right?!)
Prior to leaping into the world of entrepreneurship I spent 12 years in the corporate world working for a range of organisations, from start-ups to global enterprises on developing their human capital. This is where I threw myself whole-heartedly into excelling at everything I did. You see, entrepreneurs are very independent and innovative thinkers. We are extremely curious and are always thinking ahead to the next big thing. We find it merely impossible to just do a job without wanting to do it better.
Luckily for me my ability to innovate and think big translates well in business! I’m starting important conversations that matter, whether one-on-one with clients or working hard to change the systems, structures and business practices that hold them back. I've been named in the Top 10 list of Australian Women Entrepreneurs for 2017 by My Entrepreneur Magazine, in the 99 Global 'Limit Breaking' Female Founders, the Top Business Thinkers of 2018 by Smartcompany.com.au, alongside Naomi Simson, and have been appointed as a judge for both the Telstra Business Awards and the Women's Business Awards. I've also been nominated for the 2018 AFR Top 100 Woman of Influence awards.
I have three post graduate level qualifications in Organisational Coaching, Business and Employment Law - my husband has threatened to divorce me if I go back to uni one more time (haha!)
I’m essentially a business and humanitarian geek combined who is all about changing thinking and thus, changing the world.
Look forward to connecting and hearing more about you.
Feel free to connect with me any time and I look forward to helping you to do business better.
