What you can expect:

#1: No wasting of time, every minute is worth of your learning and you won’t find many PPT slides but more meaningful games, and rehearsals in our workshop. We don’t have guest speakers coming here share their personal stories but they are here to discuss how to conquer the same challenges in both your and their lives!

#2: Idea validation: it is common to seek validation especially when we have doubts or are about to make a significant decision. As migrants ourselves who have walked through our career advancement journey, we will give you our honest feedback about your ideas.

#3: Practice, practice, practice! there is no shortcut but more practices to secure your success. We won’t tell you what to do and neither will we do it for you because you have no power in both approaches. We will do it with you so you know exactly when and where you get stuck and ask for help in order to get your power back.

#4: Clarity on what your core competitive advantage is and how to explore and catalyse it! Without a strong self-awareness, you can hardly move forward and choose the best strategy for your career success.

#5: Emotional breakthrough: overcome your fear, hesitation and overwhelm of exploring your own potential, but more importantly, know how to increase your opportunity, influence and income.

#6: Confidence expansion: how to boost your confidence beyond your career is a much bigger success in your life and this is designed in every workshop over the 6 weeks’ time.

#7: Market intelligence and networking: You will be guided by experienced career coaches and HR professionals who have the wisdom and knowledge about the latest market trend, but most importably, how do you use those information to create your effective communication! It is all about who you know and what you know at the right timing to make a successful career and life!


    Aprile Kellick

Shelley’s coaching gave me clarification and a plan of action very effectively. She was very good at bringing my attention to how I was thinking and how it was serving me. She listened to me and engaged with my issue to bring my attention to the depth and importance of it. Our coaching sessions gave me insight to my thinking and this not only found a resolution to my immediate issue, I can now apply that thinking to other areas of my life.

Recommendations from politicians, Ceos and Reporters

“I first met Shelley when I worked as Business Reporter for TV3. She was working for Chinese Television here in New Zealand and very bravely asked the Chinese President Hu Jintao a question about Chinese students as he was leaving a press conference. It so impressed me that she had that courage to shout out a question to him (which he answered incidentally) that we put the exchange on the 6 o'clock news that night. Since that time, I have come to know Shelley as a colleague and a friend.”
Sarah Bradley
News Reporter, Television New Zealand
“Shelley has considerable PR and Communication experience as well as natural talent. She was able to take the initiative with flair and style and consult as needed. She also demonstrated a high level of emotional as well as intellectual intelligence and upward management skills. She reads people very effectively. Beneath her effervescence, she is an astute judge of character and situation. This was very important, given the seniority of many of the people with whom she was inter acting. She was a pleasure to have as a senior member of the team.”
Phillip Gibson
Former Commissioner General of New Zealand Pavilion in Shanghai Expo 2010, Ministry of Foreign Affair and Trade
“Ms Huang has impressed Rotorua District Council with her dedication and determination to succeed. She is a competent, articulate and dedicated young woman whose impressive business experience and skills were a compelling reason for employing her to assist us with our international marketing programmes. While we have placed significant expectations on her, she has demonstrated that she is more than capable of meeting those challenges, and continues to do so with professionalism, enthusiasm and good humour. ”
Kevin Winters
Former Mayor of Rotorua
“Shelley showed courage by taking on challenging conversations, listening to opinions from people from diverse backgrounds and identifying the mutual benefits of partnering to bring it to life. This impressed the councillors, stakeholders and industry players in Rotorua. As a result, the strategy won the majority vote from the council and Rotorua Tourism Committee.”
Mark Rawson
Former CEO of Destination Rotorua
“Shelley added huge value in a number of areas, particularly in supporting IAG to diversify and refine its marketing and communications approach in key target areas helping open doors for business, while also helping manage reputation in an 'issues rich' and sometimes challenging environment.”
Craig Dowling
Former Head of Corporate Affairs at IAG
“Shelley is a born grafter and multi-tasker. In order to gather content for ‘China: Off The Beaten Track’, Shelley led a TV crew made up of people from China, the UK, the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand for six months in one of the most remote areas of China where there is no running water, mobile telephone signal or television. I was always impressed by Shelley’s spirited approach to overcoming setbacks. ”
Manutai Schuster
Former Head of Acquisitions & Commissioning, Maori Television
