David Shelton

David Shelton is an entrepreneurial strategic thinker with over 30 years experience as advisor, executive, owner and investor across a wide range of industries. He brings an ability to analyse market situations and assess business opportunity.

He understands what is needed for business success, and the difficulties (both internal and external) that business owners and managers face in the pursuit of profitable growth.

He holds an MBA from the University of San Francisco, a B.Comm from Curtin University and is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company.

He is currently Executive Director of Community First International Ltd, a mid-tier NFP in Perth WA. As a consequence he has limited capacity for new projects and is selective about client representation.


“I have worked with David on a wide range of projects for over 30 years starting when he was a new and very bright young consultant at the Marketing Centre in Perth. I have had the pleasure to watch him mature and hone his skills over the last years and consider him to be one of Perth’s most experienced strategic consultants.
If you plan to use his help on a project you will soon appreciate his meticulous analysis, quick thinking and straightforward, no bullshit approach to setting out clear directions for positive action.” Burditt Krost, Strategic Planning Institute

“Within my company my senior partners are all overseas and our company was lacking the experience and planning required to guide us towards our goals and objectives.
Once David became involved he was very direct in his approach and was able to quickly assertain our current position, complete the ground work required and present a detailed strategic plan that has boosted my confidence and provides me the big picture direction required for success.
There are many consultants out there that talk a good game but David delivers, more importantly he cares about the company and the vision moving forward. His integrity is beyond question and his mentoring is not only on the money I feel that he is someone I can reply on for expert advise in all facets of the business. He is without doubt in my corner and that means alot.
If you are looking for someone who will provide you honest and real advice, even if it might not be what you want to hear, someone who understands the capital markets and how to go to market then look no further than Transition Capital with David at the helm.” Rhett Thurston, Managing Director, Mail Boxes Etc.
