Introduction: From NFL locker rooms to corporate board rooms around the United States and Europe, Shawn Harper is applying the secrets he has learned about winning in business, in sports, and in life and sharing them with the world! With over 20 years of public speaking experience, he has become a renowned and beloved motivational/inspirational speaker who has touched hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life. Shawn Harper rose out of the ashes of difficult circumstances and chose not to let these things define his destiny! "I failed the first grade. I stuttered my entire childhood, and kids called me names. I was even voted most likely to fail by my high school peers. I was marked. People would say, " 'Shawn, you're a failure... you're dumb… you're a loser.' " It was cruel, but I CHOSE to use it as fuel because winners exist internally. I CHOSE to listen to my inner voice. I CHOSE to focus on winning. You have to CHOOSE your true identity. You have to CHOOSE to focus on your dream. You were born to WIN––– IF you CHOOSE it. I bring everything I know about winning to my game on stage. Never a dull moment. I'll take you out of your seat and onto the playing field with me. Everything I learned in the NFL locker room is fair game in the boardroom and in life. Winning is about pouring yourself into your hopes and dreams and being able to share it with other people: corporations, organizations, individuals, youth, families. It's about legacy. It's about changing the world." ~Shawn Harper Shawn is regarded as one of the top, up and coming motivational/inspirational speakers in the country. A former college and seven-year professional football player, Shawn uses wit, humor, feats of strength, and his NFL experiences to draw and captivate his audience. Shawn presents on hot topics such as leadership, creating capacity, vision, mission, teamwork, hard work, wise choices, and determination; or he can provide a powerful dose of encouragement and motivation to move your group from a status quo existence to enjoying outrageous success, increased team and individual productivity, and the know-how to develop and maintain a winning attitude in all of your endeavors. He has the "WOW-factor" that mesmerizes his audiences. He is personable, believable, and humorous, and his messages are profound and life-changing. One of Shawn's best quotes is "You are not born winners or losers; you are born choosers!"
