Shaun does great work. These people agree:
“Shaun Dakin is one of the most effective social media practitioners and strategists out there, motivated not only by the sheer “coolness” of digital communications and their power, but also a deep personal commitment to using those tools for social progress. He is my go-to person for what the latest tools are and how to use and adapt them, as well as my most acute sounding board for thinking about how they fit into a overall communications strategy that maximizes connections between social and traditional media as well as to real-world grassroots movement building. That is how Shaun, through his own non-profit, Stop Political Robocalls, single-handedly put political robocalls on the map as an important voter privacy issue.
As a colleague, I’ve witnessed Shaun’s ability to expeditiously engage and build Facebook and Twitter communities, delivering numbers that other “social media strategists” are always quick to promise but very few are actually able to achieve. This is partly because of an historical depth that enables him to design and convey strategy and ideas to multi-generational management teams in order to move an entire organization forward. As a friend and ally, I know him to be a true team player who always brings his full range of creativity and willingness to a project which is almost always becomes a cause, because what he does it not just a job but an ongoing effort to fulfill the promise of democracy that’s for the people and by the people as opposed to deep-pocketed special interests.”
“Shaun has been a vital part of the Mom’s Clean Air Force digital team almost from the launch. Shaun is one of the leading experts at Digital and Social media and has led Moms to great success. He has taken our Facebook page from just under 3k to 50k and has attracted the attention of websites such as UpWorthy! I look to Shaun and his team to make certain that Moms is on the leading edge of communication with our members where they live. Most importantly, Shaun measures not just the “likes” on Facebook but the number of Facebook members that sign up on our website and take actions on our petitions to the President and Congress. I highly recommend Shaun.”
“What Shaun does extremely well: translate complicated issues related to emerging tech, social media and privacy into concepts that anyone can understand. This is incredibly important as we send him to discuss tech and social strategy with our C-level clients, who want to get up to speed quickly without being made to feel as if they’re so far behind the eight ball they’ll never catch up. Shaun is easy to work with, highly professional and extremely well-informed. He’s a valuable asset to our team!”
“I found Shaun to be one of the best all-around team players I’ve worked with in a long time. He focuses on all the right aspects of building and marketing profitable products that solve real customer problems. He has great product management skills.
His focus on improving the product management process meant he was always working at improving the overall business. He is very adept at keeping up on industry news and trends, while also offering constructive insight to help the whole team improve.
I would highly recommend Shaun to any company seeking a process-oriented product manager who can bring team-oriented leadership to any development effort.”
“Gun violence prevention is a tough issue on which to engage, but success comes more easily to those who truly care about the work they’re doing. Shaun was an integral part of our ‘No More Names’ effort and he has selflessly devoted his time off-the-clock and after hours to help raise awareness about Gun Violence Prevention. I’ve been grateful for his efforts.”
“Shaun is a digital marketing thought leader who Turner4d brought in to manage the digital marketing and technology for a large client who held an event at the Newseum in Washington, DC. He was able to quickly ensure that the event was live streamed and promoted around the world. At the time, it was the largest internet live streamed event that the Newseum had held with over 1000 viewers from around the globe. Shaun collaborates extremely well with diverse teams and was able to deliver and ensure that the event went off without a hitch. I highly recommend Shaun”
