Shawn works to improve clients’ lives and, through the ripple effect, change the world.  Drawing from a 35+ year background as a business owner, sales leader, executive recruiter, public speaker, and as someone that never got out of the day to day activities that grow business, he remains very focused on helping clients gain clarity in their situation and become more effective and efficient. Clients experience tremendous growth both personally and professionally leading to a better culture for their employees, family, friends, associates… and yes, the world.

Shawn is a Certified Business Coach and Sales Trainer. As a Distinguished Toastmaster, Shawn speaks regularly on subjects of interest to small business.

“I get great satisfaction from watching people and their companies grow. When I see their sales climbing, when I see them becoming more successful as a result, when I see managers transform into leaders and grow their teams, then I know why I get up every morning.  And nothing compares to the feeling of having people come back to me years later to say I changed their lives. It’s gratifying to be able to provide cutting edge sales and sales leadership learning programmes, diagnostics and business advice that helps individuals grow personally and professionally- and that sees clients reach and exceed their sales goals.”

Shawn is a husband, a father of three beautiful girls, a business geek, and driven to find improvement in just about everything.  He was raised in Houston, Texas mostly by a single mom who taught him to give 100% or don’t do it at all. He brings that work ethic to every client, every day.
