In addition to speaking engagements, here are some other ways you can work with me:
- Wine educator, wine tastings
I’ve had the privilege to be part of the “Live an Inspired Life” seminar presented by Shannon Skinner. If you want to get inspired, get out of your comfort zone, and challenge yourself, I highly recommend you find a way to attend Shannon’s seminars and read her book. This seminar gave me tips and exercises on how to be more creative, plan my dreams and follow my heart.
As a entrepreneur with online shopping sites such as OnlineShoppingMallCanada.ca, we needed someone to help us out with our social presence. We knew the basics, but fortunately found Shannon Skinner who know how to create more of a following with the RIGHT people. We continue to gain followers through our social media although we only hired Shannon for our Christmas holiday season. Shannon produced short-term results that had long-term longevity. I would highly recommend her for her expertise.
Web Stores Canada
Shannon gave a media-skills training workshop where I learned a lot about publicizing my ideas. Her advice was particularly helpful as I was facing a multi-hour interview by a magazine journalist. It was good to hear from an experienced person who is positive yet grounded in reality.
Management Consultant & Visual Artist
Shannon’s media training was extremely helpful to me. I knew practically nothing about how to respond to the media before taking her program. She provided me with training to help fill my knowledge gap. And then she interviewed me asking questions that the media might ask and provided me with feedback for me so I could become more comfortable with being “on camera.” It was exactly what I needed to gain the confidence to no longer be uncomfortable with the idea of being interviewed. Thanks to Shannon’s skillful coaching, I also got clarity on my key messages and on my hooks. Thank you Shannon.

Author, A New World
Not only did Shannon use her skill and contacts to secure lots of print and broadcast exposure for our brand, but the type of exposure we received was unlike anything I’d ever experienced before; in one instance, CityTV (in Toronto) actually sent a reporter and camera crew into a number of our Partner locations to go shopping, demonstrate how easy it would be for consumers to benefit from our program, and interview participating merchants, soliciting their very positive opinions of the program. Needless to say, you can’t buy that sort of publicity; that sort of thing can really only be orchestrated by an experienced PR person like Shannon – who becomes an extension of the brand and imparts her knowledge and enthusiasm to the media, helping to drive the type of “warm & fuzzy”, “did you see that thing on CityTV yesterday” results that paid media often can’t.

Whether aimed at news media or a target audience, her creative communications strategies and detailed execution get results.

Vice President, Industry & Member Relations
Canadian Association for Pharmacy Distribution Management (CAPDM)
Shannon Skinner has been of invaluable assistance to us in not only opening our minds to the PR possibilities available and necessary for organizational growth, but has also done her level best to take us by the hand and prepare us for dealing with the press at conference time. It has been a steep learning curve for our executive group to participate in television interviews arranged by Shannon, and deal with reporters and journalists at the conference. Shannon has broadened our horizons and introduced us to use the power of Public Relations in meeting the mandate and goals of our organization.

Shannon has provided creative, reliable and consistent PR strategy and execution for several years.
Consultant, Author, Speaker
I’ve worked with Shannon in the past and found her to have many of the qualities I respect most in our business….talent, integrity and enthusiasm for what she does. There are plenty of talented people out there, but Shannon separates herself from the pack with the energy and insight she brings to the party. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
