“My training with Shelly gave me the confidence and clarity to convey and communicate in a way that is concise and to the point. The training was immediately effective and beneficial. I believe that the training Shelly provides is vital for anyone that has media and interview commitments and you would struggle to find a more experienced and fun mentor in media training than Shelly.”

“I’m a heart and lung surgeon so presenting to camera was foreign to me.  I did media training with Shelly before shooting a documentary for ABC.  She helped me understand the importance of preparation and gave me the confidence to present in my own style.  It’s also helped me deliver more dynamic speeches at conferences.”

“I was a nervous speaker and felt uncomfortable in front of the camera.  Shelly’s course gave me the skills to distil my message and the confidence to use my tone and body language to deliver the message in a powerful way.  One year on and I still run through her advice prior to having to speak in public or on camera. Thank you Shelly!”

“As a dog trainer, I realise how much incorrect & out dated information is out there, so I want to be able to talk clearly and confidently to media to spread the right message.  But I’d NEVER done interviews before.  Shelly taught me how to prepare and be ready. She gave me the tools and tricks of the trade to be able to look straight at the camera and talk properly. No “umms”, no “errs” … get your points across!   Speaking to the media is a skill, and her training put me on the right track.  Thanks Shelly! “

Shelly demands that you step up and step up you do. And you laugh your head off. Shelly, I’m so glad you don’t do beige. I can’t thank you enough for the kickstart you gave me in developing the Dr Dragon personality, the you tube channel goes live in August 2018.”

Shelly’s extensive media experience gave me valuable and practical insights that I utilise every time a media opportunity comes my way.

Camera dynamo Darren helps you understand the connection with the camera  – I loved it and can’t recommend ShellShocked Media  highly enough”

“I thought I could speak without an issue because I do this everyday in front of clients & colleagues. Why would it be any different when it comes to talking to the media? Well… when it comes to being in the public eye you get put on the spot, you can waffle, get stage fright, talk 100 miles an hour, talk about stuff they don’t want to hear and the list goes on.  So I highly recommend that you get some media training to learn this skill.  Look no further than Shell Shocked Media.”

Trudi Yip, Managing Director of Numeric Eight Bookkeeping & Tax Author of Counting Potatoes

“I would highly recommend Shelly for any media training you may need, it will be a laugh a minute, but I can promise you, that you will be learning the whole way!  I now host my own radio show every week, and these days are far more comfortable at public speaking and even talking in front of the camera!”

“The practical nature of Shelly’s media training is what really stands out. Her hands on approach adds value you cannot get elsewhere. Shelly has a way of making you feel extremely comfortable in an environment that can often be confronting. Since completing her training I have been thrown into the deep-end and have played her methods back to myself before every interview – lifesaving!”
