When Jason is agrees to do a speech for a client he goes all in and in the case of Marcos Pizza that included eating in many of the US’s fastest growing (and best) 800 pizza restaurants.

    "Jason Jennings is an exceptional speaker and author, his message was so impactful to me I have to say it was the best I have ever heard in my entire career. I cannot wait to implement his 4 secrets so I can unlock the power of his message in my business."

    And, then, Bryon added,

    "They were talking about your speech for the rest of the conference! Our audience loved his style"


2017- Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain, Arizona - Hundreds of Mitsubishi’s Diamond Distributors gathered in Arizona for their annual dynamic, fast paced conference honoring their most successful customers. The theme of this year’s conference was Vision-Dedication-Success. Jason’s opening keynote speech, titled, The Five Secrets of the World’s Best Performing Leaders and Companies, was based on his research into more than 220,000 companies for his eight bestselling books.

    Here’s what the person who hired Jason had to say following his speech

    "Your message truly resonated with our audience. They were talking about facets of your speech for the remainder of the conference, and many of the five secrets worked their way into main stage/breakout presenter’s speeches.

    There was definitely loads of value in your message!

    Then, immediately following the event, the client wrote to the speaking agent and said, "Jason did an excellent job. He exceeded my expectations, which were quite high after speaking with him ahead of the conference, and our audience really enjoyed his message and presentation style."

"Even given his credentials, and his reputation as an excellent and engaging speaker, I don’t think I was prepared for how impactful Jason’s message could be. His data-driven research, combined with the pre-work he did to understand our company and an engaging conversational style, resulted in an evening that was meaningful, actionable, and enjoyable for the audience.

Jason and his staff were easy and effective to work with: from scheduling interviews of key personnel in our company to ensuring the presentation met our expectations, they were committed to success from the start. This is what a great presentation looks like – from booking to delivery! "

Each of the thousands of attendees also received an autographed copy of a special edition of, The Reinventors, with the Lowes logo on the cover.

I stated the teams body language, their engagement while he was speaking, the response to his stories and examples and the overall reaction from my team when he was done would determine how he did. Based on the reaction, engagement and response Jason Jennings knocked it out of the park. Thanks to him for a very strong message.

"HI Jason--

I left Deerhurst on Friday night and am just now back in the office after a little recovery. I had planned to reach out to you this morning but you beat me to the punch! The conference was just fantastic. Our group was engaged and reinvigorated. You were a big part of that success. Our folks absolutely loved your presentation. The straw poll shows that you were the best among our outside presenters. There were so many positive remarks. Your content was bang on. You were funny and thought-provoking. A great package. Dirk and I couldn’t be more pleased. I hope our paths cross again in the future. If you are in the Toronto area at some point in the near future and find yourself at odds for lunch or dinner, please call on me."

Best,

Susan

Update from Dotty:

Hi Jason, I'm in Palm Beach for our conference planning meeting and yesterday we reviewed the results of the surveys from the ''previous' meeting and I thought you'd like to know that you scored a perfect 5 ( scoring is 1-5) and the committee agreed that you were the best speaker we've had for the past 15 years. That's pretty high praise coming from this group because they rarely give serious kudos to anyone! Just proves that we made the right choice, not just once but 3 times! You're a tough act to follow.

I hope all is going well for you. I'm looking forward to reading your new book. I've already pre-ordered it through Amazon.

Stay in touch and don't forget to call the next time you're in New Orleans,

Dotty

"Jason did it again!

He made me look really good before another group of decision makers. The delegates were very impressed with his presentation on Reinvention. Our expectations were met and exceeded, not just because he always has such timely topics but because of the preprogram research he does on our organization.

Taking the time to talk with so many of our CEOs in advance allows him to tailor your message in a way that provides information that delegates can use in their strategic planning.

Rave reviews would be an understatement! Like the previous two AAA/CAA meetings he’s spoken at, this year’s evaluations included glowing comments about his keynote presentation. Many delegates indicated that Jason is the best keynote speaker we’ve ever engaged.

And the professionalism and efficiency of he and his team always makes my job easier. Thanks again for another great experience!".

"I wanted to thank you for your outstanding presentation at the Annual NOTIFIER by Honeywell Distributor Conference for our premier, Life Safety customers. You could literally hear a pin drop in a room full of 1000 people throughout your captivating Keynote. We’ve never seen as many participants take such copious notes as they did during your presentation.

In addition, your pre-event research to call a cross-section of customers beforehand resulted in obvious, added value. More than any other speaker prior, you demonstrated a sincere grasp of our business and its challenges, thereby allowing you to present the “5 Secrets” in a truly relevant and compelling way to this particular audience.

The final outcome? Everyone LOVED it! Customers talked for days about your speech and how personally applicable it was to them, some of our Executives incorporated what they learned into their own remarks that followed and we received dozens of requests for your presentation (including one from our President). Comments on post-Conference evaluations included such praise as; "Jason was the best keynote we ever had” and the “most valuable presentation of the event".

We look forward to seeing you at our next event, and will be honored if you can teach us even more! "

"Jason Jennings hit a "home run"! His engaging speech on the "five leadership secrets of the world's fastest growing and productive companies" was a huge hit with all the leadership teams in our Asian subsidiaries.

The feedback from our diverse participants was unanimously positive. Jason's research and first-hand experiences with the successful companies referenced in your books brought tremendous credibility to his key messages. It's often difficult to turn "theory" into "practice", but Jason made that leap easy with his adroitly sprinkled real-world examples. The acid test has been that we frequently hear people cite what they heard and internalized during Jason's
