Hi there, I’m Shirley Taylor, owner of STTS Training, specialists in leadership and communication training and speaking.
I focus on giving motivational and success keynotes at corporate events, and I conduct training workshops on effective communication, business writing and heart-based leadership. I’m also author of 12 books on communication and success skills. I am blessed and proud that ‘Model Business Letters, Emails and Other Business Documents’ has established itself as the guide on clear and effective writing, with over half a million copies sold worldwide.
Originally from Sheffield, UK, my career has taken me all over the globe. With over 30 years in speaking and training, I have lived and worked in Singapore, Bahrain, Canada and UK. I’m very passionate about making a difference in the lives of others, and helping others to make a difference.
In my motivational speaking and communication training, I put a lot of passion and energy into my sessions to make sure they are entertaining, practical and informative, as well as a lot of fun. I strongly believe that it’s important to be both a high-energy and high-content speaker. It’s essential to engage quickly with audiences, and show people how the strategies I teach can easily be applied both personally and in the workplace. My aim is to educate, inspire, inform and motivate individuals and teams to make a difference in the workplace and to communicate and lead with heart.
One thing I am always passionate about sharing is:
“No matter how much we love our technology, we must never forget the importance of the human touch.”
I am proud to have earned the designation of Certified Speaking Professional (CSP). This designation is globally recognised and awarded to speakers who have met strict criteria, and it is achieved by fewer than 11% of professional speakers worldwide.
I was President of Asia Professional Speakers Singapore 2011-12, and I currently serve as President Elect of the Global Speakers Federation.
