"Shawn Harper was the speaker at two events for us and he did an outstanding job at each event. He was humurous, engaging, and had something very meaningful to say at both events. It became clear that he does not view himself as just the hired "entertainment" but he was interested in what we were doing, too. I would highly recommend Shawn as a speaker for any other event."

Director of Marketing - Cliffstar Corporation

"Shawn Harper was the perfect speaker for our meeting. He tailored his speech to fit the audience and theme of our event. He conducted research prior to the speech that became critical points within his message. I could not have asked for a better keynote address to kick start our event. Shawn's ability to tie his life experiences within the NFL, life lessons he has learned and his current and future outlook were incredibly uplifting, encouraging and motivational to the entire group, including senior management. I am already making plans to use him again at our next event. Incredible Speaker!!!"
