Shelly St John is founder of Shelly St John Inspires, The Auction Divas and Co-Founder of Donate and Go Travel.
She is a keynote speaker, speaker performance coach and fundraising auctioneer working to help people build their businesses and attract new clients and donors through her programs. Having appeared as a Speaker, Emcee, and Auctioneer at over 1000 events, Shelly is no stranger to the stage.
As an entrepreneur who spent 20 years in her own marketing firm and 13 years as a fundraising auctioneer, Shelly has spent her lifetime learning how to read an audience and to influence the way they react. Her focus is train speakers to CONNECT with each audience (large or small) in order to help their listeners to make decisions and take action.
“Understanding our audiences on a core level helps us identify why each person is in front of us; why they care about what we ’re talking about; and why they don’t — these are the key factors in crushing our pitches, presentations, TED Talks, and video performances.”
