Dr. Shawne Duperon
Before giving the official introduction to Shawne, let me tell you how we first met. It was our convergence that led to me meeting Teresa.It was just after she launched her Project Forgive. I had a project by the same name (Project:Forgive) at that time sparked by my father’s death and our unresolved issues. She had gotten some media coverage that mistakenly included my website link in her article. It just so happened that this occurred while I was away celebrating our wedding anniversary so I wasn’t really checking messages. But something made me check in and I got hers.I did a quick summary blog post about her project and included a link back to her site. For me that was an easy call because after learning about it I felt hopeful and inspired. She and her team were very grateful and I heard from several people thanking me. Shawne and Teresa actually wanted to speak and connect with me. (That’s when I was first invited to an EBC event.) We connected on LinkedIn and Facebook but it wasn’t until the August (2016) EBC Retreat that I really understood how much we have in common. She became even more of an inspiration.Watching her coach people on stage during the retreat was awesome because was a profound mix of tough love and genuine compassion. She is truly a force for good.
