What is a Vegan Film Festival and Why Start the Plant-Based Profits Show Podcast


Shawn Stratton is the director of the International Vegan Film Festival and World Tour. He started the festival in 2018 to inspire, educate, and entertain audiences with vegan-themed films from around the world. Shawn is also an international leadership consultant, professional speaker, bestselling author, Ironman, and Ultramarathon competitor.

Shawn has a bachelor’s degree in Experiential Education and a Master’s in Leadership. He devoted 15 years to leading teams on wilderness expeditions around the world into some of the harshest environments, and, most recently, eight years consulting with corporations on leadership and team development. His first book, Teams on the Edge: Stories & Lessons from Wilderness Expeditions, was an instant bestseller.

Shawn came to veganism for health concerns after watching several influential documentaries. He and his family, including 3 young daughters, live in Ottawa and have been eating a plant-based diet since 2015.
