I have a proven track record. But don't take my word for it...

Paul Dupuis

CEO & Chairman Randstad Japan; Best-selling author ‘The E5 Movement - Leadership Through the Rule of Five'

“There are moments in life where we reach a fork in the road, or for some of us, the momentum slows down and we start to ask some important questions; “What’s next?” or “Is this it?”. Lowell Sheppard has been there, and he found a fresh & powerful way to trigger change along his own journey. It begins with embracing the idea that “it’s never too late”. As I move forward on my own journey, Lowell’s perspective, and the secrets he reveals in his programs, help to guide me on my mission to do well, and do ‘good’.”

Harry A. Hill

Serial Entrepreneur: Former CEO and current board member of Oak Lawn Marketing; Shop Japan President; CEO of Better-U

“For the more than twenty years I have known Lowell, he has been a mentor and role model to me and to the companies that I have run. He has helped us develop a deep sense of purpose. Personally that sense of purpose has helped guide me as I balance family, business and my place in the world. In my companies, that sense of purpose has increased the belief that what we do is meaningful and that what each one of us does makes a difference in the world. This built a greater sense of motivation that also benefited the bottom line. As an ethicist, Lowell truly has the ability to bridge the world of the profit and non-profit.”

Mike Alfant

CEO and Founder, Fusion Systems Group; President Emeritus, American Chamber of Commerce in Japan; President, Tokyo American Club

“For seventeen years Lowell has served as an informal advisor for myself and my colleagues. As an ethicist, Lowell helps us make sound decisions that are credible and have a tangible long-lasting impact. I am pleased that Lowell is now devoting a formal part of his time to help companies in this way.”

David Syrad

“If you want an example of how to follow your own guiding spirit in life and work, spend some time with Lowell Sheppard. I first met Lowell through his activities as Founder and Director Japan and Asia Pacific for Hope International, and I have been consistently impressed by his ability to combine a practical, business-like outlook with a principled, ethical approach. He is able to motivate teams and keep them focused on achieving their objectives without losing contact with their moral compass - qualities which are increasingly in demand in our rapidly changing business environment.”

Dr Joseph Haldane, B.A. Hons, Ph.D. (London), F.R.S.A., F.R.A.S.

“Lowell Sheppard is a leader of great personal integrity and vision, and through his diverse academic and professional background, has become a thought leader in applied ethics and philosophy. He is an excellent and thought-provoking keynote speaker and university lecturer who brings compassion, humor, and a great deal of international experience to speak on a wide variety of ethical issues.”

Rob Claar

CEO & Co-Founder, HekaBio K.K. and Vorpal Technologies K.K.; Board Director, Yokohama International School; Board Chair, Hope International Development Agency Japan

“Lowell has an amazing ability to challenge those around him to greater purpose and impact, without judging anyone for their current status or level of awareness. He brings sensitivity, spirituality, wisdom, and laughter to deeply complex situations, enabling those around him to discover the best solutions for themselves. I believe corporations of all sizes will benefit greatly from Lowell’s talent for identifying the impact of decisions and helping to navigate toward sustainable cultural, environmental, and societal improvements.”

Mark McBennett

Founder; CTO Never Too Late Academy

I've known Lowell for over a decade and have been inspired by him in many ways. When he told me about the idea for the Never Too Late Academy, I knew right away it was a winner. Not only because it's a great idea, but because I've seen first-hand that Lowell is someone who really knows how to turn an idea or a dream into reality.
