Shawn and Maria present keynotes on


“You blew people out of the water… I have never seen a standing ovation during our assembly like that one – people were mesmerized.”

Denese Odegaard, President [2016-18], National Association for Music Education (Washington, DC)

We all have something to say.  Some of us know what that is; some don’t.  Some of us know our mission on earth; some of us are still searching.  Either way, to achieve your true potential, your ideas need to be communicated and understood by those around you.  Yet, every day, these messages fail to take flight or fall on deaf ears.  That stops now.

Shawn & Maria are grand masters of FEARLESS COMMUNICATION, and there’s nothing they want more than to inspire you to powerfully connect with the people in your life.  They’ve dedicated the past decade – engaging over 100,000 audience members across 40+ North American states and provinces – to perfecting their fearless formula for the stage: be authentic, be vulnerable, be audacious.  The results are so euphoric that Maria & Shawn want to equip YOU with the life-changing tools of FEARLESS COMMUNICATION.

Expect to be dazzled, energized and transformed as Shawn & Maria take you on a rollicking journey in bold living.  Stories, soaring melodies and interactive segments will have you smiling on your feet; you’ll come away shocked that the party you just experienced laid the groundwork for courageous connection in work and in life.

FEARLESS COMMUNICATION is about more than just performing, more than charisma: it’s about combining your unique skills and talents to authentically connect with others when it matters most.

Aidan Connolly, Executive Director, The Irish Arts Center (New York, NY)
