As a recent guest speaker at the AFSA Professional Development & Education Symposium, Ms. Barnwell shared words on resiliency and a tough talk regarding bullying in the workforce that touched everyone in the room. She encouraged everyone to speak their truth and come together for true conversations to affect a change. I applaud her strength in sharing her story and encouraging others to do so as well. I highly encourage any corporation to invite Shon to speak and share her story. She displays hope, kindness, optimism, and strength in her speaking engagements, and if you have the pleasure to work with her — you won’t find a kinder person on the planet! It was a pleasure to meet Shon, and I look forward to working together again in the future! – ANDREA SANFORD
