Award-Winning Global Resilience and Burnout Coach and Motivational Speaker.

There’s no shortage of mental health experts out there, so what makes Shona different to them?

Shona believes it’s her lived experience!

She is often asked, how can one person experience so much trauma and adversity, but still keep going?

To be honest, it wasn’t always easy for Shona and 10 years ago, she was probably the most negative person around, yet she had what some would say was a successful career, nice house, nice car, gorgeous daughter and a wonderful husband, but she was so unhappy. Much of this was because of the things Shona exposed herself to, like the news, the wrong people and negative self-talk. She didn’t have healthy boundaries and had no balance in her life.

What a mini-stroke, heart surgery, burnout, a life-changing accident and cancer has taught Shona, is that we can give up or get up. It has given her the opportunity to slow down and reflect on her why and what’s important.

When Shona was recovering from her accident in 2017, she realised that if that had been her last day on earth, would she have been happy with what she has achieved? Her answer was absolutely not and it was time to take back control of her life.

Shona believes that tough times make tougher people and that’s a choice.

Following her accident, Shona was told there were certain things she would never be able to do again, but she refused to believe that and became very goal-orientated.

Once you start believing in yourself amazing things start to happen and Shona has achieved things she didn’t think were possible.

Despite what she has been through, Shona is more positive and excited about her future than ever and believes she is still here to share her story and inspire others to be their best.

Instead of just sleeping with your dreams, wake up and chase them and see the impossible become possible.

Quick quote Shona Hirons

Shona Hirons partnered with Velocity Global as Resilience Coach over the past year. Shona first delivered her signature speech to our employees which truly resonated with so many of our people and we then asked Shona back to support our employees navigating through remote work in an international context (we have employees across 55+ countries across six continents). Shona talks with passion and from her own experience, and she has an amazing ability to apply a practical tool box enabling everyone she worked with to take ownership of their own boundaries, managing their time and responses more effectively and becoming an all around Resilience Coach. Thank you Shona!

In 2021, The Jordan Legacy CIC was blessed to have several inspiring speakers at our very first Hope for Life (UK) Conference and your story Shona was truly inspirational and powerful. I remember thinking at the time, how can one person experience so much trauma and still keep going and actually thrive, not just exist.

If you’re looking to book an inspirational story about triumph over adversity, I can’t recommend Shona highly enough!!
