Gift your audience with a dynamic and interactive experience they will never forget!

My presentations are dynamic, with lots of energy and interactive writing exercises, in which participants are actively testing out new techniques, finding their own voices through writing, and sharing their successes and hardships with one another and me. Participants come alive once we get started, and they say that it is absolutely wonderful to interact with others in such an energetic environment.

Hey event planners! You’re in for a real treat!

What are the Differences Between Workshops, Trainings, and Retreats?

  • Workshops are 2-4 hours in length and are suitable for community and women’s groups, and entrepreneurs.
  • Trainings are offered in half-day or full-day sessions, involve complete immersion into a particular topic, and are offered to groups of employees or volunteers as a form of professional development.
  • Retreats combine any of the two formats from above, but take place in a “get-away” location, affording participants the opportunity to focus completely on their writing for the duration of the retreat. Morning, afternoon, and evening writing sessions are created based on the topics of interest, and there is plenty of time allotted for individual writing. It all begins with you envisioning the perfect retreat location and theme for your organization or company!

Ideal Audience

I am comfortable working with audiences of any size, and I have worked with a variety of audiences including business owners, women and community groups, independent professionals, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. In-house training, customized immersion days, and writing retreats remain some of my favorite styles for working with writers of all varieties and levels.

Shannon was on board with my event vision from the start which is a must for me when I select my speakers. She not only was easy to work with and provided all her materials promptly, she was highly supportive of the event itself. Her passion for marketing to your Content Personality™ and creating the lifestyle you want made her talk fun and powerful, and participants really related with her story. I’ve had nothing but positive reviews from participants about Shannon’s talk and what they’ve learned from her to support them on their entrepreneurial journey! As a coach and event producer, it’s refreshing to have a highly competent and collaborative professional in your line-up, and Shannon fully delivers!

It was a no-brainer to have Shannon speak at my 3-day event for entrepreneurs and wow, did she deliver value! Feedback from the event places Shannon as one of the highlights for attendees. Not only is she an amazing speaker to work with behind-the-scenes, she is committed to serving the audience with stellar content. She’s a dynamic, authentic, and inspiring speaker with solid content that empowers your audience to learn something tangible, not just be inspired for a short time.

I’ve also hosted Shannon on virtual talks for my community and the energy, passion, and value she brings in person also transfers beautifully online.

If you are looking for a no-fluff, authentic, value-driven speaker who over-delivers and is amazing to work with, have Shannon be a part of your event. It’s been an absolute pleasure to have Shannon be a part of my events. My audience loves her and so do I!

Angella Johnson

The Bed & Breakfast Association of Virginia was looking for a new speaker in our industry who could help small business owners understand the importance of blogging in their overall marketing strategy. Shannon came to the conference early, spent time with our B&B owners and really took the time to understand their unique struggles, wants, and needs. So, when it was time to present, our Innkeepers trusted her. We knew that Shannon would be a great presenter, but we were blown away when she spoke the “innkeeper” talk during her presentation! Shannon takes the time to learn what attendees want and need, and she is a huge “value add” to any conference.

It was simply fabulous having M. Shannon Hernandez as a guest speaker for the NYC Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association. The content she provided was invaluable and she thoughtfully engaged members and guests throughout her presentation. We walked away with more aha moments than I can count on my hands – lessons we could immediately implement to increase visibility of our businesses, our chapter, or of other things that are important to us. Also a bonus for us – she provided impeccable copy to promote the event. We can’t wait to have her back.
