What Clients Are Saying
"Thanks so much. Jason was wonderful! Loved by everyone! We’ve received comments that 'I needed that' and there's a lot of excitement about what he covered."
-Katie Adams and Julie Brown, RAMS Conference, McDonald's USA, LLC
“Jason was truly fantastic! One of the best, if not the best, presenter/program/topic we've ever had! With the complexities of the healthcare industry presently this is a timely and much needed reminder about how we look at things, to remember that we don't always need to do them that way just 'because we've always done them that way!’ Book him now… he's worth the investment!
-Justin Garry, President, South Dakota Medical Group Management Association
“Jason was a rockstar, which made me look like a rockstar. He was awesome! The ‘organic’ feedback was that he was everything a keynote should be – engaging, interesting and thought-provoking. There was an abundance of laughter, a few bittersweet tears, and many heads nodding in understanding. People left with practical key takeaways to apply to their everyday lives and the way they live them.”
-Suzanne Jones, COO, Association of Energy Services Professionals
“AMAZING! Jason's strength is his content. It is truth displayed in a simple, emotionally engaging format that speaks to the heart versus the mind. Again, I reiterate: AMAZING. He is real and present. His message puts your priorities in perspective.”
-Nick Kuzera, Program Director, MAHAP, MPAA and HFMA Conference, Michigan

-Don Hagberg, Sales Leader, State Farm Insurance Companies, AZ
“The program was amazing! It is just what the administrators in our area needed. It has been a difficult year and I think this presentation allowed them to put things into perspective. I have heard motivational speakers in the past and Jason is the best! He is humorous and uplifting and really helps deliver a message about remembering what is truly important in life. Jason’s stories are so funny and we can relate to them. He is very entertaining. Thank you!”
-Allison Pierson, Winnebago County Special Education Cooperative
“Enjoyable, fun, engaging, and inspiring! That's what I wanted. That's what I expected. That's what I got. Very professional. Clear message delivered in a fun way. Very thorough throughout the process with great follow up and follow through by Kim at every turn. Jason has an approachable style that is easy to listen to and doesn't weigh heavily upon the audience. His message also fit our day perfectly and staff noticed and appreciated when he tailored his message to us.”
-Ben Wright, VP Training Manager, University of Iowa Community Credit Union
“Never pass up the opportunity to see one of Jason’s presentations – it’s transformative! Jason was perfect for our audience. It was fresh, fun and the perfect combination of empowerment and entertainment. Based on the survey feedback from our attendees, they would agree. I liked the fun, DO-try-this-at-home examples sprinkled throughout his program. Rather than a theoretical how-to list to fighting Adultitis, these time-tested, successful ideas were just what I (and several attendees) needed to get our creative juices flowing again. I wouldn’t change a thing. The combination of Jason’s delivery, supporting visuals, sense of humor and audience involvement techniques made for an incredible experience. It’s been a pleasure working with you and from all that I’ve seen and heard, Jason’s session definitely exceeded all expectations.”
-Kristin Zurovitch, Director of Marketing, Sonic Foundry
