"It takes a brave person to decide to talk about Diversity and Inclusion - but to do so within disciplined professions like the Military and Police takes a motivation beyond measure. These organisations have their own culture and hierarchy with no place for multiculturalism and no desire to understand it... yet she did it! Though small in stature Shelley captivates any audience with indisputable truths that will astound you and humble the highest rank to the point where they want to know more. Shelley is brilliant & humble, she has been one of Britain's best kept secrets... but not for much longer!"
"Shelley Collins has been an inspiration to us at Victory Gap Year: Leadership Academy. She was instrumental in helping us launch the Gap Year in 2000 with considerable donations. She has taught our students important life skills and has an amazing ability to get to the core of issues and face them head on. Not only has she presented brilliant courses to our students on leadership, but she has help us align our systems and structures to be more effective and efficient as an institution. We are forever grateful to her for her selfless service and personal investment into our progam. Thank you Shelley, we appreciate you! Wishing you all the best".
André von Mollendorff - Dean and Director, Victory Gap Year, South Africa
