Shaker Consulting provided me with a level of clarity, detail and depth concerning the workings of my own business that went well beyond my expectations. Their services created measurable and far-reaching improvements both on the value of my professional activities and in my ability to refine my options and make choices for the future. I strongly recommend them to anyone with an interest in professional and commercial success.

I had difficulties securing a reliable supply chain for products in both overseas and local market, within acceptable price range.As a result of the feedback received from Shaker Consulting, I approached a retail chain for a trade account with them. I am now trading with them on a cash account, and have the possibility moving to credit. I have not lost any money. I improved customer delivery process (the next business day for most items). Have increased product range by more than 1,200 items. Have had repeat business as a result of all the above with sales increasing by more than 1500% in 2 months.I am relieved that business has started to make measurable progress, have been forced to become more organised, have implemented new systems, people are genuinely interested in my products and service, locally recognised as an expert.I definitely recommend Shaker Consulting as they have helped my business grow.
Steve, Founder Strauss House, Australia
It was a pleasure to work with Shaker Consulting over the last 5 months. We worked on business and career planning. It was a journey which involved self analysis. Shekib provided a structure and process which enabled the necessary thought progression to decide on my future direction. With many options available it took time to really evaluate all aspects of my life that mattered. We covered the key areas of work and life balance, what was important and what I wanted to achieve over the next 12 months to 2 years. As a result of the time spent with Shekib I was able to set goals, breaking them into smaller bites, making the goals more achievable. The meetings were relaxed but productive. Shekib’s style really worked well for me. It was a step through process and I learnt some great pieces of business know-how from Shekib, a delightful bonus along the way.It is easy to get caught up in the here and now, list things, yet still feel like your not achieving anything. It requires time to take care of the things that affect you in the long term. Meeting regularly ensured progress was made. After 5 months it was a great reward to reflect on the decisions made and a relief knowing a plan was in place to move ahead. Thanks so much for your time and your clarity!
Bernadette, Director, BDR & Associates
Shekib balances professionalism & personality perfectly. He is a pleasure to work with – he is warm, knowledgeable, intelligent & honest with an eye for detail and I would certainly recommend him if you are looking for a consultant because he really cares about people.

Mr. Shekib Shaker from Shaker Consulting is a passionate and enthusiastic speaker. In the past 3 years giving lectures for my Engineering Design 3 course at RMIT University, he continues to share his personal and professional (as an engineer) experiences with my students. He has very good story-telling skills and takes a listener throughout his life journey. Shekib’s history with RMIT University graduate has a particular impact on my students and paints a picture on how ones engineering career can be fulfilling and exciting if we step out of our comfort zone.
Dr. Dean, School of Engineering,RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia
Students are impressed by your talk. I think a major characteristic of your talk is that your ability to visualise the content with graphs, which I find a very effective skill in the talk. Additionally, you are very flexible in the talk in the sense that you can shape information based on students’ interest, which can effectively engage students. Simply based on the fact that you still had students’ attention after 3 hours of teaching, I can know this is a successful talk.
Dr. Shea, Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Melbourne, Australia
Thanks a lot for the very nice and engaging talk. I myself have learned many points from your experiences. In fact your words have made me think maybe this is a time to set up my own business 🙂 Please do give us the opportunity to have you at Berjaya UCH for more talks/workshops.
Dr. Shaheen, Associate Professor School of Business, BERJAYA University College of Hospitality, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Thank you for the inspiring talk you gave my students. It was from the heart and students were indeed very fortunate to have met you and hear your personal experiences. I look forward to working with you to further inspire our students to become principled and employable graduates.
Mr. Dhanesh, Dean, Faculty of University Foundation Studies, HELP University, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
It was indeed a pleasure to hear of your experiences and the wonderful lessons we can learn from them. Your youthful charm and coherent delivery has definitely attracted the attention of the audience.

The focus of Shekib’s talk was around students creating a vision and goals for their future and to overcome adversity to achieve these. He shared his journey and how he overcame adversity to encourage our students in never giving up on their dreams and what was required to achieve them, including perseverance, hard work, a clear focus and determination. His talk resonated with our students as many face adversity and challenges in their daily lives.Shekib left an impact on our students and staff, and it was often a topic of discussion around the school, long after Shekib had left. We would have loved to have been able to invite Shekib back to our school to run workshop with groups of our students and acting in a Mentor role to support some of our more challenging students in developing their leadership skills and choosing positive pathways.I would highly recommend Shekib in working with young people as a mentor and in running workshops to support young people in achieving their goals and dreams.
Ms. Konnie, Acting Principal, Lyndhurst Secondary College, Australia
In all my years of experience, some people stand out for their great qualities and Shekib is one of those people. He is well known for his intelligence, positive attitude, leadership, and diligence. Shekib was my project sponsor for a project at RMIT University. Shekib’s strong interpersonal skills and a unique capacity for empathy and his ability to motivate the team to care about the project and be invested in the project’s success. Shekib was an inspiring person who influenced me in many ways. His modest personality and his aspiring stories have left great impact on my life. I am positive that whoever works with Shekib will definitely be gaining a lot in many ways.
