They’ve worked with some of the world’s biggest brands including AFLAC, Marriott International, Porsche, Harley Davidson, Clear Channel Communications,

In 2014, Mark and Shannon launched Big Impact, Inc – a training & consulting
company that has served over 3000 women leaders in the art and science of
feminine influence and persuasion.
These women have used their newly honed skills of leadership, presentation, and
influence to shape the future having generated over $72 Million dollars in
revenue in their own businesses.
Many have continued going on to speak on some of the world’s most coveted stages, including TEDTalk, Tony Robbins, Good Morning America, and The View.
We strive to usher in a new era of social, economic & corporate responsibility by awakening the power of voice in women leaders all over the planet.
In 2009, “Prosperity Summit” Seminars marked the beginning of Shannon’s journey to empower 900 women financially. As an event promoter, Shannon has created and produced over 1100 live events, workshops and retreats. She has worked with over 200 industry leading speakers including Tony Robbins, Mark Victor Hanson (Chicken Soup for the Soul), Fredric Lehrman (Prosperity Consciousness), and Loral Langemeier (The Millionaire Maker).
For more than 12 years, Shannon has studied with women’s empowerment luminaries like Alison Armstrong, Mama Gena and Brene Brown. She’s continued to deepen her research of Feminine Leadership and Women’s Studies, helping women to increase their productivity and be more effective leaders, without leading like men.
Shannon has supported over 400 women leaders to own their authentic voice and speak on stages all across the world.
In 2014, Shannon launched Big Impact, Inc with her husband Mark, a seminar and training company that has trained over 3000 women leaders in the art and science of presentation mastery.
We exist to build an engaged community of 1000+ financially free & fully scaled women owned businesses who are considered world class speakers by the year 2035.
A prolific, entertaining and in demand public speaker, Mark has shared the stage with such luminaries as Robert Kiyosaki (“Rich Dad, Poor Dad”), Jack Canfield, Les Brown, Loral Langemeier, Marcia Weider & Gabrielle Bernstein.
A provocative storyteller, women’s advocate and Fractional CMO, Mark’s keynote presentations are content rich, truly inspiring and always well received. Women LOVE his message.
As a previous Senior Branding Strategist for Clear Channel, Inc. Mark has written and produced over 1100 radio ads and 100s of radio campaigns – using his command of language and messaging to grow businesses by an average of 144%. His study and research lead to a 18 year specialization in linguistics, rhetoric and the structure of story.
Mark delights in working with Business Women who LOVE speaking and understand the power of words and language. His “genius zone” is helping them master the nuances of influence and persuasion so they can create more wealth & impact in the world.
Mark’s path with being an advocate for women started early in life. In college, Mark volunteered for Catalyst Domestic Violence Services, a Women’s Abuse Hotline.
In addition, he helped reduce partner violence through crisis intervention, community education and the promotion of healthy relationships. His time at Catalyst was an imprint experience where he directly witnessed how brilliant and amazing women give away their power, get stuck in people pleasing, addictions and avoid setting boundaries.
In 2002, Mark’s company, Grainger Leadership Institute, LLC was launched as an incubation for women entrepreneurs to experience the benefits of “Conscious Capitalism” years before the phrase was coined. As the founder of the “Innovative Leadership Network”, Mark applied his research in advanced communication and influence to support women leaders in personal branding and culture design.
He believes that millions of women, who are experts in their field, are craving a skill-set that allows them to distinguish themselves as leaders and would love to DISRUPT THEIR INDUSTRY.
So, BigImpactHQ™ was created as a marketing, leadership & personal growth platform built exclusively for multiple 6 & 7 Figure Business Women, Investors & Activists.
