Lorna’s career path has been exciting, rewarding and challenging. Her early career saw her taking over and running a family business in crisis, taking it from the brink of closing down to a successful company.
A new direction took Lorna into the training and development world. For the last 30 years she has been training and coaching people all over the world, enhancing communication on a global scale to create world class communicators, presenters and public speakers in all sectors of business and education.
Lorna has trained/coached the who’s who of companies and is the premier trainer in her field of expertise. The mere fact that all of Lorna’s business has come via word of mouth from 29 countries says all it needs to about the quality and expertise she offers her delegates.

What our clients say about us
“Lorna is probably the best trainer and coach of public speaking and effective communication in the world.”
Jim Croxton – CEO – BIGGA
I thought I knew everything. During 7 hrs of training there was only 1 thing I already knew, the other 6 hrs 45 mins were extremely new and exciting to learn.
Jeremy Lee – Sales Director – Evestment-Nasdaq
"Lorna D Sheldon was highly recommended to me by a trusted professional, so I had high expectations for the Day 1 Training. The two groups of participants were Bulgarian and had a wide range of ability. The improvement in their performance, by the end of the day was astonishing. To say this training is: effective, good value for money or worth the time investment, are inadequate understatements. Lorna's mastery of communication gives participants the opportunity to learn through observation of excellence. This programme is full emersion in experiential learning. Progress is fast, and lasting. Deep suppression of self-expression was overcome, seemingly effortlessly. Lorna knows how to get maximum progress from each individual, with compassionate directness and understanding. One leaves with tools to improve communication, which can be applied in all situations: from daily life, to formal presentations. This is a powerful group or individual experience that can be life-changing."
Sian Lewis – CEO – AquaSource Group
Don’t worry I’m not going to send you all my work from now on, but I did feel the need to show you that I really agreed with what you said on Friday, and I have simplified my ppt right down and created a hand-out to accompany it! I’ll let you know how this is received after I deliver it on Wednesday. I thoroughly enjoyed our session on Friday. It was hard work, but intensely useful and interesting throughout. I had great confidence in your experience and insight, and your own delivery of the material was so arresting that it was hard not to want to emulate that level of engagement with my own audiences. I can’t recall another development session that has felt so immediately useful and impactful. I will continue to practice the methods you have taught us.
Louise Pidgen – University of Derby – Deputy Dean, College of Engineering and Technology
Dear Lorna, On behalf of the Redrow Board and the whole sales team I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for your excellent contribution at our sales conference. Everyone found your session very informative and relevant and it will help us to establish a truly Redrow way of selling. Please keep in contact and there may be opportunities to incorporate some of your work into our sales consultant training programme.
Dave Bexton – Group Sales & Marketing Director – Redrow Homes Limited
If you never speak to customers or suppliers, or never conduct meetings or presentations - then you don’t need Lorna. If you do however - you need to speak to her! She is superb at teaching you how to present face to face and online; what to do & more importantly, what not to do. Superb value for money. Highly recommended.
