Rockstar business writer and trainer


Shelly Davies has been described as the love-child of Brené Brown and P!nk-although her very awesome parents would probably disagree. She’s of New Zealand Maori descent-a fact that is literally etched onto her chin-and she’s known internationally for her unconventional and irresistible work in the field of plain language and clear communications.

At age thirty-seven, Shelly walked away from her family’s five-generation commitment to a conservative Christian religion and started the exploratory period of her life. She drank alcohol and coffee for the first time, started showing some skin to the daylight, and dedicated herself to fluency in a whole new language: profanity.

She now uses her hard-won lessons in badassery to inspire audiences around the globe to know themselves, love themselves, find power, and have joy. Shelly Davies lives in Rotorua, New Zealand with her Carver Boy, unless she’s at home on Aotea, Great Barrier Island, not wearing pants.

Shelly is of Ngatiwai, Ngapuhi, and Ngati Porou descent, and is conversational in te Reo Maori.
