Rave Reviews for Shannon Bahrke’s Keynote Speeches

The 100 type- A hot shot real estate investors stood for 45 minutes entrenched in what they were hearing from Shannon – not a single one left.   She passed her Olympic medals around during her speech without a care as to if she would ever see them again.   That is a trusting person.    There were high fives, nodding of heads and even some tears from the audience during her speech.  The line to introduce themselves to her after the speech took almost as long as her speech to get through.   Everyone just wanted to speak to her for a moment, thank her for her wonderful words, and just have a ‘moment’ with her.

Thank you for making our SKO special and now we have our messaging for this year – “One More!” We are going to have another Championship, Gold Medal Year for sure!!
— Dan Sytsma. President, Melillo Consulting
Shannon’s session was right on point with our theme. She was inspirational, engaging and unbelievably energizing. Her entire presentation was all about “daring” to achieve and dream big.
I first met Shannon back in the summer of 2017 by chance. Within 30 seconds of meeting her, I just knew she had to come and talk to our group. I knew they would feel her inspirational energy the way I did on that hot summer day. 
We received so much positive feedback from our attendees. Most saying, Shannon’s story and energy were truly inspiring them to dare to take a chance. They continued talking about the session for the rest of our time together and they are still talking back in their home office locations around the world.
Shannon, thank you for helping us to “ignite the light and let it shine”!

With Shannon Bahrke at your event you get the best of two worlds - the prestige of an athlete with multiple Olympic medals and the warmth of a wonderful woman who is as friendly and outgoing as she is easy to work with.  Oh yeah, and Shannon is a lot of fun too!
