I've had a long and passionate affair with technology--the kind that promises to change the world and sometimes does. Half my professional time has been working with tech clients and the other half writing books and articles about disruptive tech.

For the past 20 years, I've mostly partnered with others in writing, consulting, speaking and advising. Now, I am in the home stretch of my career and have decided to fly solo.  Welcome to ShelIsrael.com, a company of one. I plan to work hard, have fun, and make some money.

I've been around the block so many times, that it is now an oval. I was the PR guy who launched Sun Microsystems. I was on the team that named PowerPoint, and was backstage at the Macintosh launch. I played a role in popularizing the term social media. I started and ran a Silicon Valley PR firm where we specialized in first launches. I am best known as a writer and a speaker.


I offer three services:

  1. Writer.  I write speeches, presentations, white papers and books. (Read More).
  2. Advisor. Everyone who talks with a CEO has their own agenda. Mine is to serve their best interests. (Read More)
  3. Speaker. I've been well-received as a keynoter on all continents not covered by ice. (Read More)
