It’s Showtime!

The most hysterical, inspiring and jaw-dropping meeting you will ever have!

This original and most popular program appeals to all types of events as it’s designed for executive leaders, to business owners as well as the “It’s my first day” participants.

It’s not enough to ‘just’ show up, be ‘just’ an employee, or to stick with the status quo. In today’s world, merely meeting an expectation can be like doing nothing at all. Organizations need every team member and leader to show up strong and perform every day. And don’t we all want to be appreciated, respected and recognized for how we surprise and delight our customers, our team or our boss? Of course, we do! However, we struggle with mindsets, the unknown and the fact that we’re so busy JUST trying to make it through the day. To solve this, Jon will prove peak performance is simpler than you think. That you can perform at your best when the spotlight may suddenly shine and create a true SHOWTIME moment to be remembered. By combining the power of NOW, with the power of WOW you will leave this keynote experience and never be “JUST” anything ever again.

– Power of NOW

– Power of WOW

– Realize your impact in an organization, family or community

At any given time – it might be YOUR time to fully engage, achieve greatness – and rise above the rest. You might not be expecting the spotlight, but when it hits – we must perform at our best. That’s SHOWTIME! Jon will share how your team or attendees can be ready, willing, and excited to take the spotlight and make a difference in their role, this conference and in life.

If you are looking for the engagement and WOW to open your conference or event – this is it! This high energy and entertaining keynote is perfect for the opening keynote presentation, all associate meetings and personal development.

He shares the value in turning mundane moments into SIGNIFICANT, memorable – even MAGNIFICENT chances to impact your customers and even the little corners of our world in positive, empowering ways.

Keynote presentation is structured for a sales or customer experience focus, or a combination of both.


Deliver Significance – In Simple Moments

Ever wanted to stand-out in your career? Build a personal brand that leads and inspires others? Or asked yourself about leaving a legacy?

Organizations today want teams who are engaged, passionate, and purposeful in their work. They’re hungry for the how-to’s that can help everyone from the person answering the phone to the one in the corner office, understand their significance and treat every day for the main event that it is rather than the dress rehearsal it is not.

Based on Jon’s third book, he will inspire mindsets and strategies to help your team identify, appreciate and deliver simple moments.

– Define their own significance and it what it means to them

– Identify opportunities to engage in unique ways

– Deliver moments of magic that make a difference

Learn to appreciate the simple moments to balance our lives for maximum impact, happiness and efficiency

This inspirational and motivational keynote speech is perfect for a closing, or mid conference keynote presentation. It will be adapted for your association, Service, Sales, front line or Leadership event.


Boring Meetings Suck!

Right? It’s a different world we live in today. Rhetoric and routine won’t fuel your organization to outperform the competition. It won’t inspire your sales staff to set new records. Or help your leadership team create innovative solutions for guiding your company to exponential growth. What will? Jon’s take-no-prisoners approach to crafting communication meetings that blow the doors off the old way of doing things.   Based on Jon’s best-selling book of the same name which has taken the business world by storm and been featured on CNBC, The Wall Street Journal, ABC and CBS News, USA Today and many more – it’s changing the way companies do business – and they are loving the results.
