WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
Fear and guilt close down our heart…when we let go fear and guilt we can hear our heart whisper…when we can hear the whisper, we believe in ourselves…we can make our dreams come true and the key to that is gratitude for what you have…trusting your heart is the right thing to do, no matter what.” (Shannon Skinner – Key Note Speaker @ DD International Women’s Day 2016). Powerful and inspiring speech by Shannon touched everyone’s heart. It was my pleasure to have Shannon at our event and would confidently recommend her.

Shannon spoke to the audience on the topic of Unleash Your Creativity. During her presentation she covered the topics What is creativity? What is a block in Creativity? How Can we move past a creative block? And What is the #1 key to bringing out what’s in your heart to create in this world? Shannon’s presentation was from her heart. She is a passionate speaker on the topic of Creativity. She kept the audience engaged sharing her personal stories and photographs.

Shannon exhibits a natural maturity and leadership, and her participation in our event speaks volume about how passionate she is to share and uncover the stories of extraordinary women making this world a better place to live in.

Shannon’s talk was very applicable to the women and encouraged them to use their innate strengths to be more authentic in their personal and business lives. She is an engaging storyteller who knows how to weave her message in an entertaining way. We recommend Shannon if you are looking for a speaker to connect with your group in a meaningful way.

Marsh had the pleasure of featuring Shannon Skinner as our keynote speaker at an event hosted for our clients and business partners in November 2014. This event was hosted by Marsh’s Women’s Exchange, one of our Colleague Resource Groups designed to encourage diversity and inclusion in the workforce. Shannon’s keynote address focused on the power of unleashing your creativity to inspire and draw the best out of your team and ultimately inspire leadership. The feedback from our attendees was very positive as the subject matter was a welcome change from what they would normally see at insurance industry functions. Shannon is an engaging speaker and a truly inspiring individual that I am thrilled to have met. Shannon’s insights have left a lasting impression on me, and surely on all of those that were in attendance.

It was truly a privilege to have Shannon Skinner speak at our April ‘Lean In’ Toronto event. As the founder of Extraordinary Women TV, Shannon embodies the Lean In Toronto values of connecting, inspiring and advocating for women. Her talk on Unleashing Your Creativity was a great success and we loved the mantra that she shared with us – “Outside my comfort zone is where my dreams come true.” Our audience of professional women, seeking creative inspiration, thoroughly enjoyed the words of wisdom that Shannon had to impart.
