WESTMONT COLLEGE, MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA
From making friends, to choosing a major, to thinking about careers and life after college, it’s no wonder many students struggle with stress, anxiety, and fear. Our evening with Shaun Tomson and his Code Method tied in stories from life and surfing and provided a great framework for students to give voice and clarity to the things they value – – and in the process give them tools to better face their fears. Shaun connects with students and he moves hearts and minds. It was a fantastic event!

You will see they a very complimentary and importantly express clearly the impact of your presentation and facilitation of the CODE for them.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work at some of the world’s great universities and also had a corporate career, so I thought I had seen some really outstanding speakers, until I met Shaun Tomson. I can’t think of any other word to describe Shaun’s presentation as spell binding – it was fun, insightful, rigorous, enlightening, raw and engaging, but most importantly, it was full of purpose. We all want to live a life of purpose, and Shaun’s simple but powerful message in that we all have the ability to do that, he’s just trying to help us get started.
