“I first heard Shawn Hennessy speak six or seven years ago after an invitation accompanied with quite a bit of hype. Shawn lived up to every bit of it. With a rare combination of authority and authenticity, it’s almost as though he tricks you into digging (and understanding) deeper into a topic while you’re distracted by his wit, transparency and accessibility. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve heard Shawn speak now, but I can tell you I’ve been on the edge of my seat – and pushed to the limits of my understanding – every single time.”
