What People Are Saying

I REALLY can’t express how AMAZING Shawn was! His timing, delivery, message – all powerful and perfect! The students were very
engaged. The administration couldn’t believe how connected they were to him as he spoke and it seemed he never lost his audience.

When he was finished, the staff rushed me to say, “Wow! That was amazing!” “He’s the best we’ve ever had here!” “How in the world did you find him?” “You need to be sure he returns every 3 years so that every student hears his message!”

One of the best moments in his speech was when he put a 6th grade girl on his back, then an 8th grade boy, then he pointed to the principal and the crowd went wild. Shawn didn’t know this was the principal, but it was absolutely serendipity! My son said kids came up to him all day and asked “Was that your mom who brought him here? He was so awesome!”

So, needless to say – everyone loved him. His message was just what I was hoping for, passionate and inspiring! Thank you for helping me execute this presentation so effortlessly! I’ll definitely spread the word here about what a great experience we had with him!
