“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’.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

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.
