Hi, I’m Shelly Horton. I’m a journalist and in the past 25 years I’ve worked in all aspects of the media including TV, radio, print and online.
I love being a mentor. I have been a mentor to many over the past five years.
I can help guide your career, coach you on how ask for a pay rise or tell you when it’s time to leave a dead-end job.
I will happily praise your accomplishments but, be warned, I also provide tough love and constructive feedback.
I will share the career tips I’ve picked up along the way and keep my ear to the ground for new opportunities that might suit you.
Basically, I will be your biggest cheerleader.
I am a mentor and coach to business people ranging from business leaders, business owners and staff. My focus is on helping you understand where you have natural talent and how best to use your strengths to be most productive and enjoy your work.
My experience in sales and sales management can help you become more successful in attracting, growing and keeping customers in whatever business you operate in.
If you’re a doctor, my credentials are clear and I can assist with planning future career paths and work/life balance issues. Sadly I’ve looked after many doctors professionally, and would prefer to assist doctors on a mentorship basis before psychosocial issues become mental health issues.
If you’re not a doctor, I’d probably be most useful to you if you’re a little bit older, having tried a few things, and wanting to take stock of what you’ve accomplished and what else lies in store for you.
My knowledge base is in several eclectic domains, but the fundamental unifying basis is listening. I’ll do my best to listen to what you need, and help you to hear it too. Within a mentoring paradigm I would not be your psychiatrist, but will work with the aim that both of us come away from the experience having learned something.
Thank you for coming by. During my ten years working in the health and fitness industry I have learned that the most effective approach to physical wellness is to Move Well, Move Strong and Move Often.

As a victim of homicide, I appreciate the accomplishment of rising each morning to greet the day.

COACHING and MENTORING
I have coached 100’s of businesses since 2004. It is honestly as much a passion today as it was when I started. Once I realised 121 coaching was my calling I invested heavily in my own personal development by taking diplomas in NLP and coaching. I knew I needed to be the best person I could possibly be to effectively unlock my own knowledge & experiences & also to best help others. The other great (secret) benefit for me when I coach is that the learning never ever stops.
It is always a humbling experience and a true privilege to be given the opportunity to share my thoughts, experiences, ideas and messages to large groups of people from stages around the world. Part of my life’s mission is to support, serve and help as many people as I can. This is why you are always guaranteed relevant, positive, interesting and most importantly, fun content from me as a speaker.

As an international speaker and coach, I genuinely thought I had already stumbled upon the best job in the world; But actually, I was mistaken, being a grandad is a truly wonderful addition to my job titles.

I believe that the right people are the most important asset to any business. It is essential that the mentor and mentee are passionate about their work and want to achieve project and business objectives.
Teamwork and discipline are a necessary ingredient to achieving success, it is essential that the team leader supports team members in both work and personal related matters where possible to establish a strong bond and trust. I want to pass on my 40+ years of experience in the project management field to help less experienced project managers learn on the job and improve their skills. It is important to understand that the project is implemented to enhance the overall business and this should not be underestimated.
I can help in this area and highlight the benefits of changes that may be necessary during execution understanding the potential effects on schedule and budget and if it is beneficial to proceed with a change or maintain the approved execution methodology.
