A note from Shannah

What are your goals and dreams?

I work with leading business professionals worldwide on their personal and professional strategies and provide the coaching and support needed for them to achieve their visions and goals.
Throughout my years of coaching, I’ve found that my clients share one commonality – most of them don’t need motivation. They’re very successful people and they know what they need to do to reach their goals. What they actually need is for things to be simplified, so they can dig themselves out of the clutter to find clarity and purpose in their daily routines, and live a full life without self destruction. They want to get back to the foundations of who they are. Here is where all the answers are found.

My business is all about offering new perspectives to my clients and companies so they can enjoy the same. I share my time-proven techniques to inspire you to turn your goals and dreams for your life, career and business into reality. I have mastered the art of finding this clarity and balance in my life, while also challenging my own comfort zones, committing to relationships, communicating for results and having fun along the way. It is something I commit to on a daily basis, which keeps me motivated and focused and loving what life has to offer.

My background includes 10 years in the corporate world of sport working with over 100 of Australia’s elite athletes and coaches. This experience provided the foundations for Shannah Kennedy Coaching. I am an accredited Advanced Certified Coach through the International Coaching Federation and an NLP Practitioner in Mind, Emotional and Business Matrix through Mind Power Global.
I work with individuals, groups and companies, coaching senior executives, sales teams, individual business owners, employees and contractors. I always focus on the foundations. It is here that the answers lie, because it is by going back to basics, to the fundamentals, that you can gain back some control and make clear, informed decisions.

“I am a coach and am using my skills, my energy, my ambition, my drive and my spirit to motivate and inspire others to turn their goals and dreams for their lives, careers and business into reality.”
