Who We Are

Powered by Shirlaws gives you freedom in a
framework; a licence to be creative

Shirlaws, the home of business transformation

It’s been our belief since the inception of Shirlaws in 1999, that most people go into business and/or a leadership position for three reasons:

  • To make more money
  • To have more time for themselves
  • To feel less stressed

Ultimately, to have greater control of their professional life. The irony is that most never achieve this.
The sole purpose of the Shirlaws IP and methodology is to help business professionals reconnect with these aspirations, enable business transformation and provide a nurturing community to support them through the process.

“I worked with Shirlaws in my own business and completely transformed the way we think, run and structure our business using the Shirlaws IP.

Moving into the real CEO space gave me a lot of time to think and after many discussions with our charity clients showed the potential for helping them to make a real difference.”
