    Shane was our first ever “guest speaker” at our annual Graduation dinner dances for our 12 to 18 year old school group. It was fantastic to meet Shane prior, to discuss the event and audience, and upon hearing his thoughts I was very confident he had the right motivation, empathy and insight into his audience. He did not disappoint!

    Shane was funny, honest, touching and wise in presenting his personal journey, learned experiences and words of wisdom. Parents, staff, and students of all ages and backgrounds were all entertained and moved by his words, and I feel like he connected with every one of us, who each took something unique away. Thank you Shane, he will be a hard act to follow!

    Is 5 stars all I can give!?
