"Sean Tyler Foley (or STF as he's affectionately known) loves helping people find their voice so they can get their message out to the world. It is the focus of his book, "The Power to Speak Naked", and it’s what truly makes him feel alive. As a performer, speaker, and a general seeker of attention, he knows how hard it can be to get in front of an audience. Facilitating that, even in the smallest way for others, is what he was put on this earth to do.
STF is a husband, father, son, and performer, in that order. Some days he feels like he has dabbled in every industry on the planet, from oil and gas, to aviation, to film and television, but that diverse experience is what has made him so versatile!
Regardless of the industry or the titles he has held, what they all had in common was promoting and encouraging people to be heard and understood. The skills and resources he has garnered along the way have enabled him to become an entertaining professional speaker and a knowledgeable trainer, who aspires others to reach for their dreams."
