What Others Say About Shawn


“For several years the highlight of our annual conference has been Shawn Shepheard. The audience is laughing one moment, dabbing at a tear the next and all the while being challenged and inspired. He delights all ages and backgrounds and his message is universal. At a recent conference, an octogenarian said, “Shawn teaches me something new about life each time and I am so energized now!!!” And THAT is why we have him back each year.

– Casey Truffo

“As the host of my signature event, Book Breakthrough New York City, Shawn was nothing short of amazing! His style is engaging, entertaining and inspiring – all of which made both our in-room attendees and simulcast audience feel special and right at home. If remarkable is the word you want people to use in describing your event, look no further than Shawn Shepheard.”

– Elizabeth Marshal
Co-founder of Book Breakthrough NYC

Shawn and I have worked on and on for more than a decade. And through that decade, I opened two restaurants in New York City, given two stars by The NY Times, featured in an international documentary, wrote a critically acclaimed best-selling cookbook, left a relationship that was not working, and now I’m well on my way to becoming POTUS! Well, that last part isn’t in my sights but knowing Shawn, if it were, he’d help me get there.

“Before Shawn I thought I could do it all. I realized how unproductive I was and allowed interruptions. I have since recognized the importance of closing my door and hiring staff that are way better than me. We have exploded because of Shawn.”

- Jillian Burns
Co-Owner of Burns Landscaping & Snow Management

“Before working with Shawn I didn’t have anyone to keep me focused and accountable on the growth of the business. I am much more focused now on working on the business, and not caught up in the day to day. He is genuine, diligent and has a great strategic mindset, working with Shawn has been game changing.”

– Kevin Cassidy
Founder & President of Cassidy Paving Haverhill, MA

Shawn is a rare gem in the business world. He cares deeply about others and is absolutely committed to challenging his clients to be the best version of themselves. He lives and breathes coaching and is dedicated to excellence. It's such a pleasure to work with Shawn and his network of talented genuine business stars. He calls it as he sees it and his frankness has helped me grow significantly!

- Mark Bloodworth
Behavioural Change Coach


Across the veritable sea of those in the coaching, consulting, or leadership development realm- it is my sincerest belief that Malcolm Gladwell wrote 'Outliers' because of Shawn Shepheard. Shawn reminds me of the concept of "possible" that I allowed myself to lose sight of over time, and under the easy lull and short-term promises of keeping the status quo. Shawn reminds me again and again of all the reasons why the status quo is the easiest trap to fall into. He retaught me that it is my responsibility to do the work that makes me feel alive. He reminds me of the unmatched importance of taking Immediate Action. Like a Canadian Mary Poppins, Shawn Shepheard came into my life with his brilliant energy and his medicine bag of critical questions and accountability and he completely shifted the entire landscape and trajectory of my path. He got me to polish my own mirror in ways that hurt (the good kind), even as I couldn't stop finding reasons to thank him. Simply put, Shawn Sheppheard is a GIFT. His only crime? Easily, it would be in knowing that he is unduplicatable. Any attempts to try and clone him would be spotted right away. One particularly cruel version of professional heartbreak is learning that Shawn is not taking on any new clients. And yet you ABSOLUTELY are willing to wait as long as it takes to work with him anyway. Because he really is that remarkable. But also because there is but one Shawn Shepheard.

Maybe you walk away with some excellent notes from the keynote speaker. They inspired you, they gave you some great ideas, but somehow you fall back into the same old habits and overwhelm, and nothing changes.

You’re starting to give up altogether because it’s looking like NOTHING is working. I know because I have been there. I have been reading business books and listening to speakers for years; I love them both but find it challenging to create lasting and meaningful change.


I’m Shawn Shepheard and I help business owners, and growth minded leaders, achieve bigger results, see new opportunities and enjoy more time off to enjoy what matters in life with a combination of:

Until you commit to transforming your habitual behavior and thinking, your results won’t change.

I’ve worked with business leaders worldwide for over 25 years, everything from small family-owned businesses to major global corporations; I am talking about leaders with an impressive track record of achieving outstanding results.

The truth is that we all share the same issues.

The voices in our heads say:

  • The demands on my time are overwhelming.
  • I can’t keep going like this.
  • I am tired of being on 365 days a year.
  • If I could just enjoy one weekend without looking at my phone.
  • I need help but have no idea where to even begin.
  • There must be a better way.

I hear it ALL the time, usually after the second glass of wine at dinner.

As a keynote speaker and corporate trainer, I heard the same issues repeatedly from business leaders. And the worst part of it is that they felt all alone and thought that is just the way it is being a leader and bought into that story.

I kept thinking that there must be a better way; I just didn’t know what it was.

One day I asked myself the question, “What If I put all of these amazing leaders in one room and coached them as a group?”

So, I did.

For the first group, I invited 14 business leaders from across North America from various industries. From family-owned businesses to large nonprofits, major international corporations, bestselling authors, television executives, and put them in the same room.

It was magical.

They were NOT the only ones going through this. It was commonplace for high performers like them.

I provided the framework and coaching, and they learned from each other while having a great time.

They left the sessions feeling recharged, came away with new thinking and ideas that they could immediately apply but in their organizations.

They had a detailed action plan and a coach and team of colleagues to support them and hold them accountable.


Their colleagues wanted to know what they were doing differently.

The magic behind having real, no BS or hiding conversations, being coached on activating their vision while being supported by a group of other business leaders was powerful.

It changed their lives, and they brought the results of that newfound knowledge and expertise back to their teams and changed them.

No course, book, one-time speaking, or training event will give you the measurable results you will get with me in your corner…..

    • Executive coach with long success with leaders
    • The best content with follow up and measurement
    • World-class community
    • Ongoing support, no one and done
    • Accountability to keep you on track
    • Measurable progress

For Business Leaders Who Want to Get to The Next Level without Being Overwhelmed and Always On

  • Keynote speaker $5000 – $25000
  • Corporate Trainer – $3000 – $5000 per session

And what happens after the session? Nothing! Your team goes back to regularly scheduled programming. Nothing gets implemented.

And a month later, when I ask the question, “How is your team acting differently since the keynote speaker?”


How’s that for your ROI?

You and your team deserve better.


Helping business owners, and people that act like owners, get to the next level without being overwhelmed and always on.

It’s time to change the learning equation!

Learning + Behavior Change = Business Outcomes.

Learning Alone doesn’t Create Change. Ideas are Only Valuable when Applied.

Go from Overwhelm to laser focus that will get you to the next level.

And much more…..
