Today, I’m excited to give you another glimpse into The Big Talk Academy Virtual Showcase.
These amazing speakers from my signature program each have an important message to share.


I know you will walk away fully inspired seeing how these change makers, influential voices, and thought leaders are making a difference in the world.


This week’s episode features Shannon Jeffrey Dobbs and his talk, “Why Supermarkets Are Killing America.”


Shannon has gone from Army veteran to small business owner, to nonprofit founder, to public speaker focused on sharing food security strategies with the world. Shannon leverages his experiences to paint a clear and compelling picture of how each of us can overcome environmental and personal health challenges.


In this talk, he explores:

  • Why many low-income and rural communities have been left without easy access to healthy food options

  • How a significant amount of the food produced in the U.S. ends up as waste despite huge shortages at food banks

  • The shortcomings of supermarkets and the need to rethink our food system

  • The importance of accessible and affordable healthy food for everyone
