“Shawn is a really inspirational man. I think it would be great for Shawn to speak in high schools. I think too many individuals who do not fit into traditional educational systems struggle to fit into “mainstream” careers, and Shawn’s finding something that fits so perfectly for him would be a nice thing to show high schoolers. It may get them thinking outside the box about career. Thank you so much for presenting to our AAHP recognition celebration audience. The presentation left me with a really positive feeling.”
“On behalf of AMEC Earth and Environmental, I wish to express our sincere appreciation for the impact your Leadership Retreat has had on our local operation. Each and every one of the participants has commented on how useful it was both from a personal and professional growth perspective. Although the retreat was held only a few weeks ago, I have noticed a renewed interest and energy in all our management staff. The teamwork recipe we developed is on the wall of our office and serves as a constant reminder of the commitment we have made to each other. This is so vital to our operations. I would recommend your curriculum to any business who values teamwork and sees benefit in developing leadership skills in its line managers.”
“Shawn Stratton’s, Team Building training session for the North East Avalon YMCA’s senior leadership team was fantastic! Our non-profit organization is dealing with growth and motivational challenges and out hope was to offer supervisory staff some additional strategies. Shawn’s presentation, “Motivation at Work” offered valuable insight into the varying perspectives encountered at work. We appreciated the time he took both before the conference and during to talk with our planners to deepen his understanding of our group. Throughout the interactive session Shawn provided solutions that were relevant and usable, as well as valuable takeaways. We were all talking about ‘the amazing display of team work’ in the story (and images) that Shawn shared from his expedition in the Himalayas. It was a pleasure working with Shawn.”
