Shaun Flores is a prominent influencer who has dedicated his platform towards spreading inspirational content on lifestyle, mental health, skincare, and well-being. Driven by a desire to make a positive impact and to help those going through a similar experience, Shaun candidly shares his personal experience battling with mental health after being diagnosed with OCD and opens up about the impact this has had on his life. When booked for speaking engagements, Shaun eloquently delivers speeches on mental resilience, neurodiversity, diversity and inclusion and social mobility.
Being diagnosed with OCD at 27 was a major eye-opener for Shaun. It provided him with much-needed answers and empowered him to learn more about his condition to understand how he can live his life to the fullest. In seeking knowledge, Shaun began working closely with several charities and opted to use his platform to raise awareness about the common misconceptions associated with OCD. Moreover, Shaun has written several articles on OCD in leading publications such as Kindred Magazine, Treat my OCD, The Book of Man and The Model Cloud Magazine.
Dedicated to disseminating his knowledge to the largest possible audience, Shaun has given two TEDx Talks, the first in 2018 on the education system and his most recent on male masculinity and mental health. Furthermore, there are plans for a third TEDx Talk to raise funds in aid of mental illness research. A great orator, Shaun has delivered highly impactful speeches throughout his career, starting with his master’s graduation ceremony, and then followed by a lecture at the Roehampton BAME conference in 2017. Moreover, after two outstanding campaigns for Papa John’s, Shaun was invited to host the Papa John’s global music gig which was in partnership with NME magazine.
Shaun is well known for his illustrious modelling career, having worked with some of the biggest names in the industry such as John Lewis, ASOS, UBER, Peloton and Vogue Italia. Recently, during the Covid lockdown, Shaun decided to invest his time by creating a podcast called Flower Hour, where he invites guest speakers to discuss different topics relating to society and mental health. Shaun stands out for speaking on topics close to his heart, therefore, he makes passionate and heartfelt speeches that resonate with his audience on topics such as social mobility, race, mental health and neurodiversity.
As the lead organiser for TEDxUniversityofSheffield I contacted Shaun to be a speaker curator for our event given his previous broad experience in public speaking. He did an outstanding job coaching our speakers drawing upon his experiences and own strategies, providing them with excitement and motivation. Shaun is a fantastic public speaker with experience in TEDx events and always willing to help, approachable and involved. It was a pleasure working with him.
A true role model, Shaun is an empowering soul that does his up best to be a voice in the world. I met Shaun this year as he was a guest on my online show, he was very authentic and honest with his words and has a lot of value to offer. Shaun is a gem on this planet and deserves all the opportunities that come his way, he has a great creative way of capturing the audience and sharing deep thinking knowledge and awakening techniques. Anyone who is lucky enough to meet Shaun will get inspired, he is a unique and kind person.
Shaun is one of those rare speakers capable of provoking thought and stirring emotion. Having invited him onto my BMTstories platform – and had the offer returned with an interview for his podcast series – I have witnessed first-hand his unique ability to probe complex issues and plumb the depths of his own lived experience to share invaluable gems.
I had the pleasure to see Shaun deliver an incredible talk at the TEDx Sheffield Hallam University 2022. He is a powerful speaker with an incredible presence. Shaun speaks from the heart and his message is unique and authentic. I highly recommend him as a speaker for your next event or conference. He is one of a kind!
