6 Degrees to Boost Your Speaking Business



Shannyn Downey - Biography

Being involved with the impact a speaker can have on an audience is one of the reasons I was drawn to the industry. Another is because of the incredible speakers I represent and the personal relationship we share. In guiding and supporting the few select speakers on my roster on how to expand their message and reach, I’m dedicated to their growth and success. And because I am managing the operational and technical aspects, it allows them to focus on sharing their powerful presentations.

The numerous connections I’ve developed over many years with clients - be it bureaus, conference planners or corporate executives - drive me to be committed to delivering exceptional service. For me, this is more than a business, it’s a partnership built on integrity, communication and professionalism.

When not in front of a computer or on the phone, I get out in nature and enjoy a gallop through the countryside on my horse Soleil...or walking with my favorite co-worker, Ryddyk - a Rottweiler who can often be found napping on the job or helping me type.

What Our Speakers Say
