Shane came in to speak to the company about his personal experiences and the tools he used to overcome the extreme challenges he faced. His story was one of true triumph and gave us all food for thought in how to get ahead, and Glide to Soar. I would recommend Shane if you want to be inspired, reconsider facing some of those challenges you thought were too hard, and to learn about a mental tool that could enrich your life.

I thoroughly enjoyed Shane’s keynote, Glide to Soar.It was such an amazing experience, I felt apart of the story. It felt like he was speaking to each of us and we were assessing our own life. Shane is absolutely the right person to help conscious companies supercharge their performance! As a professional speaker myself on Conscious Leadership I can see the sky is his only limit.

I recently saw Shane speak at a conference and his message Glide to Soar is such an inspiration. I believe that if this message was to get embodied by people all over the world, we would really start to see a shift in the changes that we want to see in the world. I would like to see Shane on every stage possible or throughout the world sharing this message.

I had the privilege of being on the Gold Coast when Shane presented at a global Conference. Glide to Soar is a truly remarkable presentation.There was so many takeaways for the audience. The number one message that resonated with me was that every day is a gift. The way that Shane’s shared that message, along with his inspirational story had a massive impact on me. I think if more people live life understanding everyday is a gift they will be a lot happier and as a result have a much bigger positive impact on the people around them

That’s how you tell a story!! You could hear a pin drop in here. Everyone was one the edge of their seats!

Wasn’t it amazing how Shane crafted that story… You thought he was just going to glide through the air, when BANG. Take that message away, do something with it. That is the power of the message in every presentation.

I am mesmerized by your passion, your spunk and ability to tackle the problem head-on.Your talk vicariously transported me and made me experience the bone-crunching impact….. You were “in the money” and doing some wonderfully impassioned speaking, carefully picking up your pieces and then resurrection to your current self, like a Phoenix. I am grateful that you accepted our invite to speak at the India Summit. I am looking forward to recommending you to my network when they look for a ‘Motivational Speaker of a High Order’. Glad to know you. Good luck and look forward to hearing more you, Shane

It was a pleasure to listen to Shane’s life story. The way he faced life after his deadly accident was very inspirational. His interactive way of speaking ensures that your own life experiences are reflected based on his thoughts. You experience these life situations from a different perspective which is very valuable. Thanks for speaking and keep on the good work!
