Growing a business amidst trying seasons can be a daunting challenge that requires a strong dose of motivation and strategy. One without the other usually doesn’t result in much. Hence, companies and their teams continue to clamor for programs that uplift both the strategic inclination of organizations while boosting company morale. And there are very few speakers and trainers that masterfully blend the motivational and strategic aspects of business development as well as the leadership speaker and minister Anthony D Shannon.
Anthony is one of the nation’s most thought-provoking speakers and leaders in the corporate sphere. His motivational speaking and training have been pivotal to growing B2B sales, business development, and coaching strategies in various organizations and companies. Shannon is also an author and pastor who has written two books and produced four manuals around leadership. His most recent book, Live Generously: Responding to God’s Call to Give to Him As We Trust in His Provision for Us, has quickly become a hot pick on digital channels.
Born in Pontiac, Michigan, Anthony found a relationship with Christ at an early age and inspired the professing believer and disciple of Jesus to pursue a life in ministry. He finished a bachelor’s degree at Southern Christian University and a Master of Divinity degree from the same institution. Shannon currently has over twenty-five years of sales training and served in multiple corporate leadership positions, including becoming the district vice president and vice president of companies like ADP, Ceridian, Marriott, Walt Disney and Home Depot. Accordingly, he would be responsible for overseeing training and development for up to 3,000 employees in total, delivering training programs and presentations that would help upgrade company performance and results across the United States, Canada, and other countries.
Early on, Anthony actually carried a speaking and learning disorder that put him behind most of his peers, but he persevered and pushed his limits. Eventually, with hard work and dedication, he would overcome and turn his fate around. Today, he uses his experience to bring people purpose and guidance, especially when overcoming insurmountable challenges in work, business, and life.
On top of his work for the Lord, Anthony D Shannon would also serve the marketplace by providing leadership consulting and motivational speaking on corporate leadership, vision casting, time management, consultative B2B sales, business, and many other subjects. He has changed the lives of many individuals and corporations in the United States through his masterful keynote presentations.
Shannon holds various certifications and affiliations that link him with some of the best in the training and speaking field. He is a certified trainer and leadership coach with the John Maxwell Group and the Sam Chad Leadership Academy. Anthony has also recently started working alongside the Fair Consulting Group and the House of Creativity Live on the social media platform Clubhouse.
Anthony D Shannon has spoken before churches and organizations such as Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, Church of God in Christ, National Agents Alliance NAA Leadership Conference, NAACP Regional Conference in Ohio, ADP National Conference, Christian Business Network, The Detroit Pistons Camp, Detroit Police Department Training Center, and the Wayne County Sheriff Department to name a few.
