Professional Background:
Shawn began his career in retail management for a large variety store chain. There, he learned the fundamentals of leading a team, customer service management, and operations.
After two years of mastering the basics, he leveraged his people skills and selling ability to work for Dart Container as a territory sales representative. In that role, he learned the ins and outs of cold calling, client management, sales effectiveness, and customer service.
He spent several years in the field before the head of that company’s training function recruited him after hearing him speak at a regional sales conference. As a senior training coordinator, he designed, developed, and delivered training on such topics as sales, leadership, and motivation.
With hundreds of hours of classroom time behind him, Shawn moved to Comcast where he was the vice president for learning and development.
There, in addition to managing the day-to-day operations of the training function, Shawn co-launched Comcast University. The University’s inaugural effort was a highly successful development program for high-potential hourly employees. That program drove retention and internal promotions. It has been the subject of several case studies.
Eager to branch out and continue his work with a wider range of people and projects, Shawn left Comcast. He partnered with Business Training Works in 2005.
Since that time, he’s developed and delivered courses and keynotes on creativity and ideation techniques, leadership development, a host of human resources topics, and sales and negotiation programs.
