Speaker Detail

Shawn Shepheard

Keynote Speaker, Author, Coach and Consultant

The Leadership Advantage

Shawn Shepheard is an executive coach, business strategist and keynote speaker. Shawn helps great leaders become exceptional, on their terms. Shawn has a long track record of being the secret weapon for executives and business owners. He has worked with entrepreneurs across North America, and for global companies including LinkedIn, Verizon, Johnson & Johnson, Javelin, Allstate, Kaloutas, Tim Hortons, Kraft Foods, Cassidy Paving, and the YMCA. Many of his clients think of him as their private Sherpa—in their corner and helping them reach new heights.

His extraordinary ability is using his raw honesty combined with a sense of humor and adventure to help people reignite their dream vision of what they’ve always wanted, and provide clarity that gets them excited and moves them into immediate positive action that makes them become even bigger stars than they already are.

After graduating university Shawn had no idea what he wanted to do.  He wound up working in a restaurant that he describes as ‘the best business school for me’.  He’s struggled financially, and personally; living with a family history of Huntington’s disease (his Mom passed away at 71 and brother at age 59).  He was diagnosed with type one diabetes at age thirty.

And, through it all, he’s been a keynote speaker, author, coach and consultant for some of the most courageous people in business.  Shawn has been privileged to coach people that have dramatically changed their lives (not his words, but theirs). 

He is relentlessly curious, loves learning, reading, hanging out with interesting people; believes in real conversations, big dreams, having fun, loves watching and playing hockey and relaxing on the beach with his wonderful wife.

As Shawn says; ‘I LOVE coaching people that have BIG dreams and the courage to go after them.  I learned there are lots of unknowns in life, but one thing I know for sure, at the end of this dance I want to be able to look myself in the mirror and say I lived a life true to myself and had a lasting impact on others’.
