If you’re looking to create not just an event, but an experience people won’t be able to stop talking about, look no further.
A New York City dad, husband, award-winning author, serial entrepreneur and expert in practical personal development and human potential, Jonathan has founded a number of game-changing wellness-companies, taught thousands of students and led workshops, events and retreats around the world. His new book, How to Live a Good Life: Soulful Stories, Surprising Science and Practical Wisdom, serves as an operating manual for a life well-lived. And, his last one, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel For Brilliance, was named #1 Personal Development Book of the year by 800-CEO-READ.
In addition to writing and teaching, Jonathan currently leads mission-driven media and education venture, Good Life Project®, produces a top-rated podcast and video-series with millions of downloads and facilitates courses and events at the intersection of business and life. He is also the founder of The 108 Conscious Business Collective.
Jonathan has been featured widely in the media, including The New York Times, USA Today, People, O Magazine, Vogue, Elle, Yoga Journal, SELF, Allure, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, FastCompany, Inc., Entrepreneur and thousands of other places that sound cool, but don’t impress his daughter all that much.
Jonathan in Action:
Personal Agility: How to lead and thrive in a fast & fluid environment.
In a rapidly-shifting economic environment, organizations must be fiercely agile. They need to anticipate and respond to a near-constant level of change, disruption, uncertainty and opportunity. At times, they even need to create that uncertainty in the name of fueling innovation and creating new possibilities for growth.
But, there’s a problem. No organization can be truly agile if the individuals within it are destroyed by the pace and demands of rapid change. And, that is exactly what is happening on an increasing level. Eventually this mismatch in environment, goals and capabilities not only grind growth to a standstill, it also leads organizations to be labeled as inhumane places to be and makes it near impossible to attract and keep top-level talent. What is the answer? We need to not only cultivate agile companies and cultures, we also must teach the “humans in the system” how to thrive in the fierce, fast and fluid environments that drive innovation and growth.
In this keynote presentation, Jonathan offers five critical capabilities, designed to equip employees and leaders with the skills need to flourish in an environment of rapid change and uncertainty. In fact, Fields has literally “written the book” on cultivating the mindset and leadership skills that turn uncertainty, exposure and vulnerability into possibility, purpose and potential, Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel for Brilliance (#1 Personal Development book of the year by 800-CEO-READ).
UNBUSY: The Power of Intention in an Autopilot World
We live in a world where pace without purpose has taken over our lives. Every day is spent breathlessly and mindlessly reacting to a series of tasks, agendas and stories on a near autopilot basis. Forget getting ahead, we’re just doing everything we can not to fall too far behind. At work, in relationships, with our health and our lives. And, it’s killing us.
This moving keynote presentation, drawing from Jonathan’s bestselling book, How to Live a Good Life, is your intervention. It is an inciting incident that calls us to break out of the autopilot, reactive busyness matrix and reconnect with intention, agency and mindful action. It reveals the deeper “invisible pathology” that drives reactive busyness, exposes the true impact, then offers a set of real-world, practical steps to reclaim a fierce sense of agency, purpose and focus in all that we do.
The 5 Be’s: Hidden Drivers that Fuel Purpose and Possibility
What are the hidden drivers that exist across nearly every successful person? Not just in business, but in relationships, health, spirituality, and life? Jonathan Fields has been on a quest spanning more than a decade to learn at the feet of many of the world’s “embodied masters.” This, in fact, has become his mission, and sharing what he’s learned has become his vocation. In this powerful story-meet-science presentation, he draws from the lessons of his studies and travels and his most recent book, How to Live a Good Life, to share five common patterns that serve as powerful unlock keys for purpose and possibility in all parts of life.
The Innovation Biome™
Innovation is an ecosystem or “biome. Like any natural biome, it can never fully thrive unless three critical elements are not just present, but embodied: Ideation Methodology, Innovation Culture and Individual Optimization. The first has been getting a lot of attention. The second is given lip-service, but rarely cultivated. The third isn’t even on most company’s radars. Without all three, innovation cannot sustain beyond a momentary flicker that is quickly snuffer out. When all elements are embraced, though, the Innovation Biome™ becomes complete and genius begins to blossom on an entirely different level.

What event organizers say:
“We were so pleased when you agreed to speak to our associates, but it wasn’t until we heard your presentation that we realized how fortunate we were to have you kick off our 2017 Strategy Session. 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. Thank you for taking the time to understand our goals for this session and crafting a presentation that so perfectly achieved our desired results. We hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.” – Ronald A. Redmon, Jr., Capital One
“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
