Shelley Laslett is a dynamic and engaging keynote speaker. We were delighted to collaborate with her at our industry-wide training event, Verizon Media’s Brand Love Academy.

Shelley brought a scientific yet practical lens to the day through her brain-based coaching techniques helping our delegates with brain hacks to build a high performing life.

We are thrilled with the positive feedback we received from her session.
— Anny Havercroft, Verizon, Director - Brand and Marketing

"It was critical to work with a coach who had a startup/tech background and who knew the brain. As Shelley has experience as a startup; investor, advisor, founder and mentor it was an easy choice. She not only coached me to learn how to take myself out of founder detail, she also helped give me the major ‘aha moment’ that by helping myself, I was helping my business. Working together, I found I was way more productive, had way more insights by having the space to think strategically rather than emotionally. "

Shelley Presenting the Neuroscience of Leadership

Vitae’s Neuroscience of Confidence session was fascinating, but more importantly made us think differently about how we pitch and present ourselves.

Because Shelley explains her recommendations from a scientific/data-led perspective, she takes even busy and sceptical audiences with her. I’d recommend to any founder.

Our team were lucky enough to have some follow up individual sessions, which received great feedback. I hope we’ll keep working closely with Shelley and team.

Speaking to Deloitte Australia on the Neuroscience of Communication and Influence


Vitae’s session on Leadership was one of the most popular training events.

We heard lots of positive feedback, including one Director, who was; ‘completely blown away by the strength of the training, its messages and how easy it was to apply.’

All of Vitae’s sessions were expertly crafted, skillfully facilitated and very well received. Shelley truly embodies her teachings, authentically delivering relevant, applicable and unique training that receives glowing feedback.

Having worked with Shelley and the team at Vitae on a number of initiatives, I could not recommend them more highly to any organisation looking to lead with a neurological and economical advantage.
— Anna Lindberg, Innovation Manager, Deloitte Australia

Shelley helped us scale quickly by finding and on-boarding the right talent for our next level of growth. Shelley hit the ground running, quickly producing results and setting up scalable people processes.

Shelley’s background working with startups meant she easily adapted to the continually changing nature of our business. She slotted right into our culture, made an impact, and helped us grow as we transitioned through some complex growth changes.

Shelley also has a natural way with people, which sets them at ease. She coached a number of our team through challenging situations to help them find solutions. I would recommend Shelley and the team at Vitae to any business, but particularly those looking to grow quickly and effectively.

It was an absolute pleasure work with Vitae around their Neuroscience of Influence: Managing Your Career module for NASDAQ in Sydney. Shelley has such a great wealth of knowledge in neuroscience and how to apply that to managing your career.

She is also a very skillful speaker and facilitator, making something as difficult as managing your career, very fun and interactive. Shelley taught us how to be more effective communicators, especially when it comes to the managing up conversation.

We enjoyed Shelley’s work so much that at the end we were already asking her to come back. Thank you Shelley. It was so wonderful to have you!
— Phoebe Zhang, NASDAQ Ambassador, Entrepreneurial Centre & Senior Service Manager

Absolutely loved Shelley’s talk on the neuroscience behind confidence, and how you can use this confidence to more effectively communicate with others, and influence decision making in your favour.

Shelley is a completely engaging speaker – super smart and witty.

I left the room with some clever new tools to boost my confidence – queue POWER POSE!!”
— Michelle Kaplan, Marketing Manager, marie claire Australia

Shelley and the team at Vitae are absolute professionals and fantastic to work with. Having a diverse background, I was at a bit of crossroads as to what my next role should be. They provided me with the tools and means necessary to sharpen my thinking and give me the clarity I needed to progress in my career. My CV and UVP (as an employee) was transformed into something amazing and much better than I could have done on my own. Could not recommend more highly.
— Matt, Melbourne
The first thing that struck me about Shelley was her passion for her work and the way she talked about it. Shelley is undeniably on your side when helping you through sticky situations. Her wealth of knowledge surrounding the brain and the way it works helped to shape my day to day approach to my business practices. I couldn’t recommend Shelley enough - if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have had the courage I needed to continue through the difficult moments of Entrepreneurship. Look no further for a dose of inspiration, understanding and clarity. Thank you for all your help Shelley!

As an entrepreneur, your emotional state and business is a rollercoaster. It’s often tough to share this with your friends, family and your team. Working with Vitae helped me share my worries and express how I was feeling. Shelley helped to uncover other elements that are contributing to the stress or emotional state so I could find clarity and stability. This allowed me to focus and move forward.”
— Holly, CMO, Beam Wallet, Sydney

It’s not very often you experience working with someone that instantly understands you and is in your corner from day one. Can safely say that’s what it’s like been with these guys. They 100% care about you and where you’re at. Working through my confidence challenges with Shelley helped me believe in my creative talents again and what I was capable of. The mind is a crazy thing, but Shelley taught me how I could master it, not be master by it. She helped me change what I thought, and it seriously changed how I thought and also how I acted. Do not hesitate to get involved. Worth every penny and ever brain busting moment.

"Vitae is like the glue that holds your shoes together. You don’t know you need them, until everything falls apart. With Vitae’s help, I’m now able to run in the right direction. And without any blisters."

Kirsty, Head of Content, Frank Body


I met Shelley at the crossroads of my career, and she was there at every step of the way to help me successfully transition from what I felt I had to be doing, to what I absolutely love to be doing (and getting paid for it, of course). Whilst your peers provide invaluable support when you make those daunting career decisions, those decisions are some of the most important in your life. As a lawyer, I would say to my clients, leave the dispute resolution to a professional. The same approach needs to be taken when reconfiguring and propelling your career to its greatest heights - see a professional, or better yet, see Shelley.

I cannot stress how professional, deeply skilled and thorough Shelley is in relation to her work and creating a journey and experience that is personal to you and you only. She will help you quiet the voice that says it’s impossible and empower you to not be a subject to the job market but controlling what offers come to you.

Shelley tells me that it was all my doing, but without her dedicated and unwavering support I couldn’t have gone from working in a job that failed to inspire me, to suddenly landing 3 job offers, each a dream job in its own right.Having ticked the biggest goal off my list, Shelley has restored my ability to trust the process, to have faith that anything is possible in this life. I am now working with Shelley to conquer my personal goals and am elated to continue working with her to achieve every single one of them.

Thank you Shelley, I can never repay you for what you have done.

"Our founders have loved working with Vitae. Shelley is that rare blend of startup expertise and coaching expertise. She has a real skill for taking the comprehensive and overwhelming experience of founding a startup and breaking it down in digestible chunks that our cohort could action.
She does the same with neuroscience, sharing just enough to make it meaningful and practical – especially around confidence. Her empathic and action orientated approach set our cohort, (many who are first time founders) at ease. Shelley has made a real impact on our cohort(s) giving them the confidence they need to tackle the startup journey."

Christie, CEO & Founder, Tech Ready Women


Love the Vitae folks! It’s strange thinking where I might be without working with Shelley and Brenton. I came to Vitae knowing the types of brands that I wanted to work with and what I was passionate about, but not knowing how to package up my non-traditional experience for the workforce. They gave me clarity and confidence, transforming my CV and ultimately helping me to landing an incredible job.
— Mike, GM, The 5th

Shelley has a warm and caring personality and is always looking for ways that she can add value. She was really able to understand, empathise and relate to what I was experiencing. Having someone who understood me and held the space for me to explore my internal dialogue and talk through my challenges has made an immense difference. I am now able to frame and see things in a totally new light. I would highly Vitae to anyone who is looking to have someone who can guide them to find what they want and how to get it. They will help you break through your mental blocks to achieve your true potential and the growth you desire.

Shelley is a great career coach. She helped me condense and refine my CV to present my strengths in a clear way. She also helped me to articulate my unique value proposition. If you are looking to take your career to the next level, I would highly recommend getting her and team at Vitae to help to get you there.
— Helen, Sydney
I’d heard great things about Shelley’s coaching skills from about 5 different people, and decided I had to experience this for myself. During the session Shelley made me feel very comfortable, we explored my values and how I wanted my life to be. She soon unearthed some interesting insights about what I actually wanted vs what I thought I wanted. I wanted to focus more on the career side to things, and shelley had some really good insights into the different types of businesses and gave me some pointers on which might be better suited based on my values. I’m now tentatively (and excitedly) researching a different career trajectory which aligns more with my values. I also have the values at the forefront of my mind when making decisions. Thank you Shelley!
