About Shelley

I have over 20 years of experience in corporate communications and public relations focused on B2B in sectors from financial services, fintech, business consultancy, technology products and services to media and telecoms. I've worked in large, global agencies such as H+K Strategies and Fleishman to smaller and mid-size agencies where I’ve driven UK and international campaigns for Motorola, Nortel, Sage ERP, Marconi, Fiserv, TBG Digital (now part of Sprinklr), Strato (Deutsche Telekom), and Wipro Digital.

I have also supported NGOs and charities in the learning & development sector and internet safety for children.

I founded my own business in 2009 which I successfully grew for nearly six years. I have recently set up a new company, Stuart Consulting, aimed at advising board-level professionals in communications and PR and taking on NED and board advisory roles for scale-ups and mid-market companies.

I was a Non-Executive Director for Exlabs, a Polish-based software development firm, during 2016-2017.
