Speaking

I’ve had a chance to speak at some great events, from keynote speeches, to all-day workshops, to lightning talks. I love connecting with people who are excited to learn something new, and my talks always involve audience interaction and leave people with big ideas and something they can go home and use the next day.

Testimonials

“As a follower and fan of Jason’s work, I was confident he could put together a powerful message for our PR group, despite the fact that public relations wasn’t precisely his field. I could not have predicted or been more pleased with the outstanding results. The work that Jason put into preparing his presentation, into researching our experiences and expectations, was far beyond that of our “typical” presenters. Rather than delivering a canned speech pulled from an existing repertoire, Jason went out of his way to customize a message that was germane, engaging, and fresh. I could not have predicted or been more pleased with the outstanding results.”

Robyn Bridges, Public Relations Council of Alabama

“Less than a minute into the presentation any hesitation I’d felt was gone. Jason commands the room – he’s a fantastic storyteller and immediately gets everyone engaged. He outlined 12 different types of pitches, going into detail on what makes each pitch effective. He then had our startups pick a pitch that resonated with them and present on the spot. He gave insightful, actionable feedback after each.

We refer to his deck and presentation constantly and he was the highest rated speaker in our program. Hiring Jason is a no brainer.”

Brian Scortado, Tacklebox Accelerator

“Jason’s workshop on blog writing was one of the most productive we have ever held. He packed a startling amount of practical advice (and humor) into two hours, and his advice reflected extensive preparation and understanding of our business and our audience.”

Paul R. Constance, Inter-American Development Bank

“It was terrific having Jason in to speak to our enterprise community at our Work-Bench Workshop. Jason did a fantastic job of not only sharing the tactical secret sauce behind Percolate’s marketing success – but also the greater story and vision, which is just as critical (if not most important of all) to the success of anyone building out a marketing engine.”

Jessica Lin, work-bench
