2022 Speaker Profile
Shawn Nason, Founder and CEO, MOFI
Shawn Nason, founder and CEO of MOFI, best-selling author, and former Walt Disney Imagineer, lives his life with a commitment to create radical relationships with everyone he meets. Armed with the gift of discernment, he has the uncanny ability to walk alongside people and organizations as they struggle to connect with their deepest passions and engage their most debilitating demons. He challenges the world around him to be fully present, get real, and lead with empathy.
On a mission to disrupt the status quo, Shawn dares changemakers to pour their hearts into their work while doubling down on a commitment to humanize their experience ecosystems. Unwilling to separate his heart from his work in the business world, he unapologetically challenges leaders to quit the bullsh*t and think bolder about how to actually improve people’s lives. He’s the person in the room who is undeterred by convention, unafraid to dream big, and unable to settle for mediocrity.
Prior to launching MOFI, Shawn was the chief experience & transformation officer for Healthways and served as the chief innovation officer for Xavier University. He also spent six years at The Walt Disney Company in various capacities within Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Cruise Line. He’s an in-demand speaker and coach, the author of two books, Kiss Your Dragons: Radical Relationships, Bold Heartsets, & Changing the World (2021) and The Power of YES! in Innovation (2017), and the host of The Combustion Chronicles podcast.
