I started Community Ventures [now Shannon Cohen, Inc.] in 2009 to render services designed to help my clients SHINE. I love partnering with leaders to help them cast a vision, build a plan, and execute with excellence strategies that move a vision from promise to reality. I have 16+ years of experience launching, building, and scaling initiatives from good to GREAT in order to meet the needs, dreams, and mission of clients! How can I help you SHINE?

inspirational speaking
Inspirational Speaking
Many of the leaders I have the privilege of serving are anchors in their families, marketplaces, and communities. These leaders engage in battle everyday on the front lines of boardrooms, public spaces, and community organizations, but the greater battles are often waged privately behind closed doors. As a speaker, I create leadership triage spaces for emerging and existing change makers to openly discuss and heal from the battle fatigue and scars that accompany a life of service. In this process, I merge ‘head and heart’ strategies to empower front line leaders to thrive at the intersection of joy and purpose.
