About Shaun as a Speaker

Shaun King is one of the most experienced, accomplished, skilled speakers in the nation. He has been the keynote speaker in every venue with every type of audience imaginable over 1,000 times since he was just 17 years old. He has been a full-time speaker his entire adult life. 

His ability to weave humor, compassion, meticulous research, and grave seriousness into one presentation is unmatched. 

In his new events, he integrates photos, charts, graphs, and videos to help make his most essential points stick. A master of his content, Shaun shocks event organizers by not using any notes or guides.

Typically, when Shaun travels to speak, he also schedules private time to engage local leaders, students, and staff so that they can dig deeper behind the scenes.
