For Shawn Reid (he/his/him), nothing is more satisfying than the lightbulb moment – witnessing concepts click into comprehension. Though he started his career in sports journalism, once he was introduced to the Learning and Development world, he was hooked.

After more than a decade in the L&D sphere in a variety of roles, Shawn is currently a Learning Content Designer at Husch Blackwell; this allows him to experience both his L&D loves – facilitating training, and creating informative, creative learning products.

Despite leaving behind his sports-writing career, watching, reading about, and chatting about sports – especially the Chiefs and Royals – remains a favorite pastime for Shawn. And as a parent of kids aging from six to seven, he has acquired a new love – good coffee with an extra shot of espresso!
