Who are The Essentialists?
Shannah Kennedy is a qualified and accredited life strategist, sought after business advisor, keynote speaker, facilitator and best-selling author. She has more than 10 years’ experience working in senior strategic sports marketing roles working on major events and projects with leading sports brands, Olympians and other elite athletes. She saw first hand case after case of corporate/high performance burn out and she herself succumbed to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. After this experience, Shannah established a new coaching business pioneering the application of wellness principles, working with a range of senior executives, elite athletes, entrepreneurs, organisations, teams and individuals wanting to find real balance and purpose in work and life. Shannah’s coaching process and insights challenge conventional values around what it means to be successful, what drives sustained high performance and find true balance. Shannah lives by the ethos: “Stop being a passenger in life, jump into the driver’s seat and take control with calm confidence.”
