Please tell us about your organization

Shawn is not only a genuine person. He communicates with pure, unadulterated honesty, for good or for worse. That is what you want from anyone standing on stage, leveraging the spotlight. Combining his transparency with 1st hand perspective and knowledge as a Neuro-diverse Entrepreneur, Shawn can scale many subjects from Neurodiversity, business basics, marketing, social media strategy and even family therapy. As a guest speaker for both The Trailblazing2016 & 2017 Conference, Shawn hit a nerve and lit a fire within the entire audience. We have collaborated with Shawn via The Picasso Einstein #JobCreators Movement as both a friend and trusted colleague. We recommend you welcome him to your stage, at your event. We do, & we will, each year!

Meeting Trailblazer Shawn Smith was such an exhilarating experience for me. The passion and genuineness he brings to the neurodiversity movement is so deeply inspiring. I found myself hanging on his every thoughtful word and his many deeply personal insights with a level of intensity and interest that is quite unusual for me after all these years. He’s a very special guy who I’m sure will be in my life for many years to come.
