“Dynamic speaker with a genuinely fresh & creative approach”

I’m often referred to as an excitable presenter who approaches her speaking from a position of value and content first, which is exactly what I’m all about. Since launching as a business coaching and consulting company in 2006, I’ve had the opportunity to present to a diverse range of audiences both as a guest speaker and educator and as the event organiser, both online and in person.

Shannon Dunn | Professional Speaker | Women in business | Ultimate Girls Week Away Fiji February 2020

As a business speaker there are many things I could talk about but only a handful that I love to talk about (see the list below!).

When I’m not working with clients one on one or leading a mastermind or training program you’ll find me creating, writing, designing, dreaming or imagining the possibilities that exist for entrepreneurial women in today’s world.

Get me into a conversation and I’ll likely unravel your marketing mysteries, help you uncover your Thrive Factor Archetypes to tap into personal leadership and marketing persona and definitely leave you with lots to think about….. but in a good way!

Liesel Albrecht Testimonial Speaking Business Coaching Shannon Dunn

Shannon’s creative perspective to business and life made her a perfect choice for being a keynote speaker at the inaugural Ultimate Girls Week Away in Fiji in February of 2020. Considering Author Liz Gilbert was the headlining speaker for the event, positioning Shannon as opening keynote speaker is testament to her caliber as a speaker and her ability to hold space and captivate an audience. Her professionalism in every aspect of her speaking is commended and one of many reasons why she is top of my list for future national and international events

“Shannon Dunn is an exciting and engaging speaker. It is clear that her knowledge and wisdom comes from years of actual experience. She talks about complex business topics such as mindset, success, planning and marketing in a way that makes them suddenly fun and approachable. She finds ways to connect her message directly to the audience she speaks to, empowering the room with actionable steps as well as inspiring case studies. I am already looking forward to the next event I can include Shannon in, having featured her in our national conferences, online summits and business retreats multiple times already”

“We reached out to Shannon Dunn of Thrive Factor Co to present to our women in banking and finance member community.
We were looking for a presenter with expertise in a topic that would support our members in their personal and professional development and help them achieve success!
Shannon delivered a well-paced, professional and engaging presentation that provided our members with a new exciting concept – the Thrive Factor Framework® and Archetypes!
Shannon introduced the common Archetypes found in women who work with money. It gave our members a chance to reflect, relate and think about how they can activate their own effortless success zone! Her presentation was well-received with over 140 registering to join the event. Thank you from team WiBF.
We highly recommend engaging with Shannon if you are looking for a speaker/presenter for your next event, presentation or workshop. Shannon can bring something new to your community or team and provide a learning opportunity that you have not seen before through the Thrive Factor Factor® experience.”
