Shelly who is a Chartered Psychologist, received the award in recognition of her outstanding and sustained contribution professionally in the field of Occupational Psychology. This is through work which has had a significant impact on the public, in developing our understanding of psychology in work contexts and her substantial contribution to the British Psychological Society.

On receiving the award Shelly addressed the conference:

“I feel humbled to be honoured by my peers and I pay tribute to all my colleagues, clients and collaborators who have made this possible. I want us to continue creating opportunities for people to achieve their potential and to be kind to people every day.”

Shelly won the award due her commitment to the profession and the impact of her work on society and across government in her 30-year career. She has worked with over 250 organisations and hundreds of coaching clients, including MPs and Ministers. She has been a Non-Executive Director for an NHS Trust and served as Chair of North West in Business. Shelly has worked on several high-profile NHS governance cases as an expert witness and has made a number of TV and radio appearances, recently contributing her thoughts about the #MeToo campaign on the national news.

Working with the Director General of Equality and Diversity, in The Department of Health, she designed a range of interventions implemented nationally to increase the presence of BAME managers at senior levels. Shelly has done extensive pro bono work in the charity sector and inter-faith work and she was influential in driving the policy change for post-mortems of individuals in Muslim and Jewish communities which require rapid burial.

As Chief Executive of Impact, which she founded over 25 years ago, Shelly has demonstrated commitment to developing new members into the profession by recruiting over 20 postgraduate interns.
