Jon Petz, Author, speaker and corporate entertainer is the Chief Engagement Officer of Bore No More.™ Jon engages his audiences into his events, but also re-engages them into their own lives, careers, organizations, goals and into the lives of others. He helps them create SHOWTIME moments in which you learn how to create IMPACT instead of simply meeting expectations…because it’s SHOWTIME, and life isn’t a dress rehearsal.

Jon is former corporate executive and named one of the top 40 business professionals under the age of 40 by Business Journals Newspapers.

Keynote Speaker: As an opening or closing keynote speaker, Jon has presented his signature and custom keynote presentations filled with energy, entertainment & inspiration for organizations across the globe. Jon is an engagement expert who has mastered the ability to relate to his audience and capture them through the humor, energy and content of his presentation. He re-engages their passion and pride into who they are and what they do.

Author: It had to be said, and finally, someone was willing to say it - Boring Meetings Suck!™ ABC News, CBS News, The Wall Street Journal, Success Magazine and CNBC amongst many others, have covered the success of his “take no prisoners” approach to effective, engaging and results driven meetings. The response? A best seller for Jon and a breath of fresh air to everyday office meetings & all who need to Get MORE from them or Get OUT of them. His breakout session, based on the book, is frequently the top rated overall session of conventions and conferences.

Entertainer: Performing since a child, Jon’s performed his unique blend of interactive and comedy magic in the Sydney Opera House in Australia to a pasture in Sidney, Ohio. He’s been the opening entertainment for groups such as the American Idol Tour and Rascal Flatts, and created custom themed shows for corporate groups, trade shows and associations around the world.

Combine this, and you have only one person. That person is Jon Petz…Because No One Remembers Boring!

"It’s SHOWTIME... and Life Isn’t a Dress Rehearsal”
Let author, speaker and entertainer, Jon Petz, be the first to tell you to STOP meeting expectations! At this moment, it’s time to create impact in your life, at work and in the lives of others—instead of merely meeting an expectation. These moments of impact (SHOWTIME moments) can present themselves at any time and when you’re least expecting it. 

This entertaining and thought-provoking keynote speech allows your attendees to see and experience the importance of every aspect of what they do and how they can identify ways and methods to further the impact they create. This comes in many forms from service-oriented experiences and interactions to every day phone calls, meetings or daily activities. If you’ve heard the signature 7 of Hearts story, this is the program that features it and inspired the newest book.

Attendees will be empowered to:

  • Take action NOW
  • Deliver an experience instead of merely meeting an expectation
  • NOT be a “just-ah” employee, father, mother, spouse or “just-ah” anything. Be the best at you.
  • Re-engage them into the passion in who they are and what they do

Are you ready for the spotlight? You better be because it’s SHOWTIME, and life isn’t a dress rehearsal.  

“Passion, Pride and Innovation”
Having passion and pride in what you do starts with yourself.  Passion in your daily activities originates with doing your best work while having the most fun.  For exponential results, it’s about going the extra mile, even when no one is watching.  
Are you willing to make a commitment to constantly improve who you are and what you do?  What can be the results if you do?  As the keynote speaker, Jon delivers just this.  The attendees walk away with a new feeling of passion for what means the most to them and how they can apply that to both their personal and professional lives.

“Boring Meetings Suck!”

Meetings, the cornerstones of collaboration, inspiration, and progress, have suffered excruciating humiliation at the hands of every day meeting organizers and attendees. Gone are most agendas, participation, focus, and follow-up that are the lifeblood of great meetings. Instead, too many meetings drone on like some sort of soul-crushing, walking-dead zombie robbing workplaces of joy, productivity, and time. But there is good news: meetings can be saved…by you! 

Based on the top selling book, this high energy and entertaining session delivers many “Suckification Reduction Devices” to make your next meeting more efficient and effective whether you are the host or merely an attendee. Stop wasting productive time be learning:

  • Send the meeting invite with a simple and effective sentence that enables participants to come prepared.
  • New techniques that will help run “get in, get it done, and get out” meetings.
  • Tips to make your presentation powerful instead of pointless
  • How to be a meeting hero, and get people to show up on time, participate, and return to their desks happy and with extra time in their pockets

When done right, meetings can rock. They can be vehicles for innovation, motivation, and decision-making. They can spark revolutions. They can save the world! This session will show you how.
