Out•Think Keynotes

“Shawn pulls his audience into an exciting and compelling story about this new era of leadership. His model of "Actionable Leadership" weaves together a variety of new and emerging perspectives, studies and personal observations from his years interviewing business leaders, thought leaders and academicians. Shawn brings truly infectious passion, energy and humor to this topic! Don't miss an opportunity to learn from Shawn's work!” Kathy Doiron, Global Talent Lab, Starbucks

Out•Think is a wakeup call to any leader to embrace their team and create an environment that drives innovation. Many times we look outside for innovation when it really lies within our own organization, right under our nose. We had the pleasure to have Shawn speak, and work with a group of our leaders for a half-day at our global annual meeting. His engaging style is refreshing and feels as if you are having a conversation with a neighbor. He is not a "talking head" but an captivating and practical speaker who grabs the audience and keeps them hooked. We look forward to having Shawn join us again at future management meetings.” Jim Hackbarth, President & CEO, Assurex Global
