We wanted this session to set the tone for the year, re-charging and inspiring our managers, and challenging them to work in new, creative ways – and you delivered and then some! Feedback from attendees has been incredibly positive, with comments not only about how valuable your advice was, but also that your tips seemed practical and actionable.

We hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.” – Ronald A. Redmon, Jr., Capital One

Your passion and purpose really inspired our people to understand the importance of focusing on their well-being. One of the goals we set forth for this meeting was to ensure our people understand that well-being is a priority in our organization and you were a vital part of helping us do that.

“Jonathan came to Charlotte and filled the hearts and minds of our community with perspective-shifting, soul-searching wisdom and insights. The room teemed with hundreds of eager souls (you should have seen our wait list), all there to hear him speak. And each and every one of them went along for the exhilarating ride, because they knew they were in the hands of a master—someone who delivers deep value while being at once authentic, vulnerable, disarming, engaging, challenging, and damn hilarious. Let me put it this way…and I mean this literally: lives were changed that morning.” – Matt Olin, Host, CreativeMornings/Charlotte
“If you are thinking of hiring Jonathan as a speaker, I have just two words for you. DO IT. Jonathan spoke at our FreedymFest event. And even though the multi-day event had almost 30 speakers, his session was, by far, given the highest rating. It wasn’t even close. In fact, 2 years later, I still get emails from attendees saying how Jonathan’s talk changed their lives. And it’s not just the “content”… it’s the WAY he delivers it. His passion. His humor. And his ability to speak with authority, and yet, with such humility is quite rare.” – Ryan Lee, FREEDYM
“In six years of producing the World Domination Summit (WDS), Jonathan Fields is the only speaker to address our entire community twice. He first served as our closing keynote speaker during year one, and last year we were thrilled when he accepted an invitation to return as the opening keynote speaker. In other years he has also led Academies (half-day workshops) that quickly became the highest attended throughout the history of the event. Jonathan has a genuinely unique way of communicating with groups of people from a stage that make them feel as if they were talking one-on-one. If you get the chance to bring him to your event, don’t hesitate!” – Chris Guillebeau, Word Domination Summit
“Jonathan was granted one of the four coveted speaking slots at the Invitational Consumer Health Summit, a private gathering attended by leading founders and personalities. He used the occasion to debut new marketing theory which held the room spellbound, and also prompted fundamental alterations to many of the attending businesses in the days following. With hindsight of several years, Jonathan’s presentation has proved both memorable and prophetic.” – Michael Fishman, Consumer Health Summit
“Thanks to you for a fantastic presentation. It was informative, inspiring and entertaining. The perfect kick off for our career development event. And thank you for being so accessible and flexible along the way. The simulcast was important to reach all of our staff and you pulled it off beautifully.” -Barbara Fitzsimmons, Razorfish
“This guy came in as a favor, at the last minute, and still knocked it out of the park! Jonathan knows how to connect and engage with an audience, and better yet, inspire them to action. Nobody left the room when Jonathan spoke; he drew them in immediately with great storytelling and his passion for the topic” – Terry Starbucker, SOBEvents co-founder
“Jonathan Fields spoke to a room of mostly accountants. His experience and charismatic personality kept the audience interested. He talk was relevant and compelling. I would love to hear him speak again.” -Kerri Stern, Hospitality and Technical Professionals Meeting
