A country boy by birth, Shane was lucky in that he had the opportunity to witness life in all parts of the world as both a child and adult having lived, studied and worked in the UK, USA, France, Italy, Germany, Ireland, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Philippines, and South Africa, to name a few.
Over the years Shane has been an avid student undertaking studies in theology, philosophy, psychology, business, finance and specialised areas of medicine and law. Therefore, Shane has had a career in many roles; including trainer, business manager, youth worker, writer, coach, social researcher, political adviser and consultant.
He is currently the Asia-Pac Convenor for the Association for Coaching (UK) and recently resigned as the Founding Co-Chair of the Asia Pacific Ethical Board of Review (Singapore).
