“Our organization, like many others, is going through significant internal change, as well as grappling with a generationally diverse workforce and a rapidly changing technological platform. Workload pressure and stress are at an all time high. Shawn created an environment, far removed from the workplace and workplace roles, that allowed us to reconnect as human beings and to recognize the value of our colleagues as well as the impact our own behavior patterns can have on maximizing our potential as a team. He led the team through this process through fun, active and energizing exercises that brought everyone together and generated plenty of laughs and smiles along the way. I would highly recommend Shawn to any team looking to maximize their potential.”
“Shawn’s dynamic, inspirational presentation on teamwork was fantastic. Shawn’s simple techniques to motivate and recognize the members of our organization were simple, practical and relevant. His stories and use of multi-media captivated and engaged the audience. His presentation was an excellent reminder of the contribution volunteers to our organization. They go above and beyond…And Then Some!
On behalf of the TEDxStJohns Executive Planning committee, I would like congratulate you on delivering an outstanding presentation. We’ve received a great deal of positive feedback from the audience. “ Exciting, funny, breathtaking images & powerful story” were all words used to describe your talk.
Working with you has been easy and an absolute pleasure. We appreciate your willingness to adapt to fit with TED’s unique format and theme. Your professionalism and positive attitude are evident in everything you did, from rehearsals to the inevitable minor tech problem on our end, you rolled with the punches and delivered an outstanding lesson on team-building. We would love the opportunity to work with you again.

“This is my second time working with Shawn and once again he has been an outstanding facilitator for our team building session. He brings a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience working with teams. His messages are delivered in a style that is interactive, thought provoking and a lot of fun at the same time. Shawn created a positive learning environment where our group members felt comfortable to share insightful personal information that will help our team reach its full potential. The varied sessions took us out of our daily routines and assisted to look at ourselves from different angles. The feedback communication skills that we learned and practiced were being implemented upon returning to the office. Shawn’s inspirational presentation on The Power of Teams shared invaluable lessons that will resonate with our team.”
