Shawn's Speaking Page
Thank you for visiting my speaking page, and considering hosting me at your event. (To check my speaking availability, please scroll to the bottom of this page.)
Although I'm fairly new to business conferences, I've actually spoken hundreds of times over the past 25 years for groups of 30-3000 people at national, regional and local conferences, youth events, schools, universities, and retreats hosted by the Evangelical Church of America (ELCA), Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), and many other denominations as a Keynote Speaker and Musician.
I've also hosted and led over 1,500 missionaries since 2006 in short-term missions to Guatemala, speaking nightly to mission team members and village leaders (in both English, and Spanish).
But don't take my word for it, check out the testimonials below. Also, you can watch the full-length video of one of my keynote talks on Mobile Pro Podcasting (or skip around - topics and minute marks are listed under the video).

Thanks again for considering me for your event. I hope we can work out the details, and hope to hear from you soon!
Testimonials - Keynote Speaking
Here's what some of my audience members, and event organizers have said about my keynote speaking:
"When you look for someone that lives up to his name, look no further than The Mobile Pro, Shawn Smith, who recently presented at our Podcast Florida conference. Shawn is is incredibly knowledgable and is a leading authority on Mobile Podcasting, a field which I believe will grow exponentially in the next 12-18 months. A fantastic presenter, his dynamic personalty shines through on the stage, and in his podcast.”
About Shawn's Mobile Pro Guide
"Before Shawn Smith's Mobile Prop video training, I believed I was tied to my office to do interviews for my podcast. Now, I can do on-site mobile interviews like a professional. Shawn's videos not only showed me what I need, but walked me through how to use the equipment. Mobile Pro has given me freedom."
"Podcast listening has found its strength in being available anywhere, especially on the go. With his advice, techniques, and simple set ups. Shawn has effectively made podcast recording and production just as portable. Shawn’s video lessons are top notch, easy to understand, and most importantly, the instructions are easy to replicate. Shawn Smith is The Mobile Pro, but he is also a wizard, helping you take your podcasting show on the road with his field tested set ups. Like any master, Shawn has simplified a complicated subject and made it simple for the rest of us. Don’t reinvent the wheel, let Shawn show you how you too can be a Mobile Pro."
"Everything (including podcasting) is going mobile. Shawn Smith provides excellent, clear training on how to setup a streamlined podcast rig on-the-go in this course. This will show you how to capitalize on any conference, meetup, or get-together and turn it into a podcast interview. Plus Shawn is a musician and gearhead ... the very type of person I want showing me how to use the latest tech. Highly recommend this course."

"As a facilitator of live events I have seen my fair share of presenters. Shawn Smith is one of the most gifted presenters I have witnessed. He takes a technical topic like mobile podcast production and makes it attainable for anyone that has the desire to get their message out. I recommend Shawn as a Presenter as well as his course at TheMobilePro.net to anyone thinking about either. "

Shawn totally over delivered with valuable content and is now my go to for all things mobile podcasting”

"Shawn Smith gave me THE tip of the day at the Podcast Florida Event. His presentation was clear and concise, peppered with a deep fondness for what he loves to do, and showing us how to podcast from our iPhones was worth the price of admission.”
"I wish I had found Shawn's Mobile Pro Podcast Guide and bought the videos before following all the other guides on the internet. I would have saved at least $1,000 and launched a better, easier podcast. It's an awesome resource!”
