About Shirley Billson

In the bright Autumn of 2012, Shirley Billson self published a book about achieving success. By 2013, she was in debt, depressed and broken.  What followed were 6 long years of re-building self identity, trying and repeatedly failing to resurrect the success she'd previously found so easy. Finally, she re-discovered her own well of courage and the positive power of maverick. Six months later, she was speaking at national conferences, discussing collaborations with international thought leaders and had secured a new book deal with a major publisher in a field where she had limited first hand experience. She has taken a deep dive into better understanding and challenging the unconscious bias and invisible rules that prevent us from being more courageous, more innovative, setting bigger goals and achieving more than we thought possible. She now speaks with passion to inspire others to do the same. She challenges audiences to re-kindle their ambition, soothe their inner demons, be more courageous in life and business and discover the positive power of maverick, so they become more focused, more productive and achieve more effective results.
