What’s it like to work with Jack and his team?


You can expect communication to be prompt, clear, and cheerful. The speaker is low-ego and low-maintenance. We will have an initial conversation or two to ensure that the goals for the event are clear and that Jack has a valuable message to bring to the audience.

If Jack speaks at your event, he will invest time getting to know your audience and your goals, and will tailor his message for the maximum impact. We will set up a dedicated web page for your attendees with materials and slides, and Jack will help you promote the event (if you like).

How much does it cost to get Jack to speak?


The range for a speaking engagement is $9,000 – $15,000. Some of the factors that determine the fee are schedule, location, audience, length, and topic.

What’s the first step?


If you are hosting an event that might be a good fit, the first step is an email to check schedules, and then a conversation to discuss your objectives.
