"Panic is contagious but so is Leadership"
Throughout his business career, Christchurch born, Shane Spiers has survived through three major UK and global economic recessions: 1990-1992 when there were extremely high interest rates responding to inflation, the dot com recession of 2001 and the Credit Crunch recession of 2008 when the subprime mortgage crisis infiltrated the British banking sector. Shane has also had to manage through some sector or locality specific crisis including SARS (2003), London Bombings (2005) and the Syrian Refugee crisis (2013) as well as several major property fires and political disruption that affected the economy and disrupted business activities.
With the current Covid-19 pandemic we face challenging times at the moment and we could all use a little guidance and reassurance from a fellow Kiwi who has experienced similar challenging situations and can share some tips on how good leadership, planning and behaviour management can get us out into the light again.

He coaches business owners across the globe to increase their profits year-on-year, build effective teams to help them run their businesses and get time back for themselves. Shane has coached in a broad range of sectors including, amongst others, agriculture, arts, healthcare, energy, professional services, real estate, construction, technology, and manufacturing.
