FAO Learning and Performance Branch of the United Nations contracted Dr. Shawn Andrews to deliver a Zoom in on Learning session on the topic of “How to Leverage Emotional Intelligence During COVID”. We targeted the entire Organization and reached a total number of 324 participants. This was the most refreshing and positive virtual session that I have had in a long time. The session was very well prepared, and although we do not ask participants to fill out a formal evaluation, the verbal feedback received after the session was excellent. Dr. Shawn Andrews proved to be authentic in her way of delivery and in approaching the subject. She came across as knowledgeable, highly professional and committed to her work. Her session was engaging, innovative and thought-provoking. I would highly recommend her.

Cristina Pelazza, FAO Human Resources Officer, Learning and Performance Branch, United Nations

Great find on the speaker – I must be honest, out of all the speakers thus far, including Condoleezza Rice and Amy Cuddy, Dr. Shawn Andrews gave the most concrete action items for us to work on. I love her addition of the “Emotional Intelligence Team Effectiveness Questionnaire” at the end. Really well, thought-out!

Michael Delmage, Director, Organizational Development, Meda Pharmaceuticals

“Dr. Andrews, I met you when you spoke at Biogen a couple years ago, and ever since then I've had friends ask about my role as a leader in the industry and how I navigate my career living in a male dominated work force. Time and time again I've referred to your talk about EQ and the Gender Divide. Brava to your research and thank you for your work and continued advocacy towards compressing the gender gap.”

Nora E. Bruno, Principal Consultant at NEB Pharmaceutical Consulting

“I had the opportunity to hear Shawn speak at SHRM Talent last year. Her talk was thought-provoking and highly engaging. I will definitely pick up her book, The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide!”

Regina Corley, Talent Marketing, McLane Company, Inc.

Our company is committed to DEI and as a woman of color, I am personally dedicated to ensuring me, and my leadership team, are aware of our biases and how they may impact the bottom line for our business. Shawn's dynamic, interactive and well-researched workshop kept us engaged, and challenged us to be more aware and accountable to building diverse and inclusive teams whose perspectives are valued and lead to better decisions. We look forward to partnering with her again soon, as we continue our journey as leaders, committed to doing better.

Terri Phillips, MD, Chief Medical Affairs Officer, Merz Aesthetics
