CUPS OF COFFEE
Shamis led an interactive conversation and keynote presentation on the importance of community and belonging at our annual user conference for RubyApps clients and marketing technology professionals. She prepared extensively, collaborated thoroughly with our team, and facilitated a highly engaging and meaningful session. I would recommend Shamis for any of the variety of services she offers.

Shamis was a featured guest in my graduate level course on leadership and management and was simply exceptional! Her ability to be in the moment created a safe space for the students—a group of mid to senior level public health professions—to openly challenge beliefs about themselves as leaders and take ownership of their personal/professional well-being. Shamis’ ability to draw on knowledge learned, to include lived experiences, while simultaneously reading the room made for a dynamic and engaging learning experience.
Shamis Pitts was an incredible keynote speaker at our MiTek Women Employee Resource Group’s conference held the week of International Women’s Day. We pursued her services because of the research and practices she shared on empathy, mental health and wellness, and the ways we can feel seen within our professional and personal lives. She equipped us with a toolbox of tips on how we check in with ourselves and with our teams. She reminded us that compassion is not just intended for others, but to remember ourselves for the purpose of being our best in our work, in our lives, and for our families.
