Shelley Bridgman is 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.
Drawing on her unconventional life experiences, Shelley delivers inspirational and transformative messages that captivate her audiences.
Whether she’s speaking to 1,000s or to10 executives around a boardroom table, Shelley will not only inspire them to change, but will teach them how.
From building (and losing) a business, becoming a successful stand-up comedian, to breakdown and attempted suicide, Shelley’s life experiences have shaped who she is and her approach to speaking about transformational change.
In her story-telling, Shelley uses passion and humour to inspire and entertain audiences with her experiences of overcoming failures and attempts at self-destruction before ultimately recognising that transformational change happens when we stop wearing a mask and become who we already are.
Stop trying to change and become your magnificent self
