You hit the messaging for our sales kick-offs on the money. Incredible job of combining purposeful stories and illustrations combined with engagement and humor.

From our initial conversation to the moment he left our event, Jon’s keynote message and interaction was unique to my attendees. Every person who sat in our audience felt as though he was speaking directly to them. I’ve never had a speaker rate so highly on our post-event survey.
— Thom, VP, Employee Engagement & Recognition
After 22 years in this industry, I have laughed harder than I have ever laughed in my life. Jon made everything so funny, and yet, poignant and relative. He brought it back. He kept us engaged the entire week. Every time you saw him, you laughed, but more importantly he kept you focused.

You are a rock star and I’m happy to pass on any words of recommendation that can testify to your amazing-ness.
— – Event Planner, Procter & Gamble Company
You clearly exceeded our expectations in so many aways – and it was the perfect way to end the Summit. I recall looking out into the audience and everyone was locked on you – nobody was checking their mobile devices, I mean nobody – you had their full attention, which is difficult to do at a firm like ours.
He had their attention from the moment he started to the second he stopped. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone looking for a motivational speaker.

He’s an amazing, amazing beginning, closer, all-day session. He is a tough act to follow. I have planned many, many events and I have never hired a keynote or motivational speaker as impactful and as ‘wow’ as Jon Petz.

Jon Petz is one of the most engaging speakers I have come across in years. His unbridled passion, enthusiasm and messaging reminds me of a young Zig Ziglar. Jon’s business message is on point and provides relevant business context in today’s complex business environment.

What impresses me most is that you deliver much more than magic or illusions… You have a unique ability to connect your gifted talents to predetermined organizational objectives and deliver them in such a unique way that one cannot help but retain… long after the event.
