Shonette Bason-Wood

Creator of Spreading the happiness

Shonette Bason-Wood is Guinness World Record Holder, mother of four, International Speaker and award-winning author. Shonette is different in style and content, from her look to her ability to lift an audience to a whole new level of thinking. She has created a positive global community within education in which educators put their own happiness first to impact on the children they work with. Famous for  her fine muscle exercise Dough Disco, Shonette works Internationally with over 26 countries with Spread the Happiness Educators.

At a recent Head teachers conference Paul Smith (Head of Quality and Control) said, ‘Shonette, is not outstanding, but sensationally “standing-out”

Her message, performance, political satire and precision timed delivery, smattered with eye watering humour and unrivalled passion truly empower the audience to take hold of their life now and live it.

Her work spans all ages encouraging people to take control of current trends and agendas by focusing on happiness, humour, reality, risk taking, and positivity.

Shonette is not a motivational speaker but an experience. The audience will leave the room, but she will leave a Permission To legacy that                                            every person will benefit from and ripple that has the potential to impact on 1000’s of people.
