Hello! I’m Liz Tucker.

It wasn’t until my life fell apart following Dennis’ death that I really understood the power of self-confidence. You can’t come through a major life change and continue to be your old self, but you can be a more confident version of you.  Every cloud has a silver lining if you look for it!

What can I do to help you? Probably quite a lot actually, but as we haven’t met I thought you might like to know a bit about me first.

Shepherd Creative Learning and The Self-confidence Academy are a personal tribute to Dennis Shepherd; the man who squared my circle (personally and professionally). My tribute to Dennis is to ‘pay it forward’. Everyone needs self-confidence, and the more confident you are the more you will achieve.

I live in a village in the heart of the Cotswolds. My home is a place where friends and clients can step off the treadmill for a while, recharge their batteries, and discover greater self-confidence.

I had a long and rewarding corporate career – involving training, mentoring, quality process auditing, and key account management. Then in 2003 opportunity knocked on my door in the form of voluntary redundancy. I confidently stepped into the unknown, and so began a new career.

2003 – the year Dynamic Customer Solutions Ltd was born. This was a boutique consultancy specialising in personal development and improving the customer experience (a win/win for everyone). Without confidence I would never have had the courage to launch my own business.

Fast forward to 2012; it was time for a new and personal adventure. Dennis and I took very early retirement to embrace all that life had to offer. This idyllic phase ended suddenly at the end of 2012 with Dennis’ unexpected death.

What followed was a deeply challenging experience that took me to the edge at times. My life changing experience involved dealing with professional negligence, challenging the law, and winning against all the odds.

Although I wouldn’t want to have an experience like this again it did a great deal for my self-confidence. I hope to inspire you to make friends with self-confidence, so you can embrace all that life has to offer. I’ve created a series of short self-confidence programmes to give you a helping hand on your self-confidence journey. I will use my personal and career experience to help you be a more confident and fulfilled version of you.

Since 2003 I’ve worked with thousands of people from a wide range of backgrounds. I’ve worked with personal clients, start-ups, Solopreneurs, the British Army, Chartered Institute of Housing, WH Smith and many of the UK’s social housing providers.
