RESILIENCE KEYNOTE SPEAKER Shawn Ellis’ one-of-a-kind journey began when he moved to Nashville at the age of 17 to pursue a career in music. Although his dreams of being on stage with a band didn’t quite go according to plan, Shawn soon discovered his true passion at the intersection of life and work. Writing a college paper on the power of intrinsic motivation in the workplace led him to change course and ignited a lifelong commitment to helping organizations create better environments for their employees while fostering more fulfilling work experiences.
Today, Shawn is an internationally recognized expert, advisor, and top-rated resilience keynote speaker on change management, cultivating resilience, leadership, and overcoming adversity. Known for his authenticity, humor, engaging storytelling, and unique perspectives on leadership and personal development, he often jokes about how he now tours with PowerPoint rather than a band—yet he still has the same goal as a speaker that he did as a musician: to leave audience members feeling better than they did when they arrived.
As a resilience keynote speaker, Shawn’s research, case studies, and thought leadership focus on inspiring audiences while providing actionable strategies to drive meaningful outcomes for individuals and their organizations. Shawn also coaches high-performing leaders with practical, life-tested ideas, concepts, and frameworks to elevate their impact and create lasting legacies as they define the future of leadership and resilience in their organizations.
Over more than a decade as a keynote speaker, Shawn has shared his insights with thousands of business leaders around the globe, for leading organizations including CMT, Bridgestone, Freddie Mac, Cayman Islands Civil Service College, and Dippin’ Dots, among others.
