We thought we would take a moment, and on a more personal level, introduce you to the team behind the brand!
Our CEO & Innovation Evangelist, Shawn Nason believes that innovation is not work – it is a lifestyle. As an inspirational thought leader, he has garnered the confidence of all he has worked with – from key executives and stakeholders to peers and staff. Beginning with his experience in Imagineering at The Walt Disney Company early in his career, Shawn developed an empathy-driven, people-centric approach to innovation and ideation. He has taken this ideal throughout his career, and whether it is in education or healthcare, he has served as the catalyst for organizations to become the best they can be.
Shawn firmly believes that the core of innovation is about developing and curating the right experience for each and every consumer. The ideal is to meet your customer in their reality – gain empathy for their challenges and help them innovate and set strategies that make sense for their unique business.
