Jeremy Park is a corporate executive and philanthropist, an author of two books and a weekly newspaper column, a contributor to Forbes, producer and host of television, radio shows and a podcast, along with a sought after speaker for transforming organizations and individuals into catalysts for their community.

Park is the original architect who transformed cityCURRENT, formerly known as the Lipscomb Pitts Breakfast Club, from a small, simple inward-focused business networking group, hosting only a handful of events, into a powerful team of businesses now outward-focused on making a difference and recognized internationally as an innovator in corporate philanthropy, social entrepreneurialism, and collective impact.

Park is the author of the "Giving Back" column, which he launched in 2010 and is published each Sunday in The Commercial Appeal.

Proceeds from both books benefit youth literacy programs in the Mid-South.

Park executive produces and hosts the cityCURRENT Radio Show, which airs each Sunday from 7-8 AM across the four radio stations on the Cumulus Media Memphis network (Kix 106, 98.1 The Max, 98.9 The Bridge, and 103.5 WRBO), and also executive produces and hosts the monthly television series, The SPARK, which can be seen the third Friday of each month at 7:30 PM on PBS's WKNO/Channel 10. He also hosts the TV series, "A Conversation With," and executive produces and hosts the annual televised awards show, The SPARK Awards, as well as the ChangeMakers Podcast.

As a guest speaker, Park regularly keynotes events, leads panel discussions, and talks to groups about our model, shifts in corporate philanthropy, how giving leads to growth, cause marketing, and personal branding. Park is also a Member of the LLC with Lipscomb & Pitts Insurance, LLC.  He was recognized as a Top 40 Under 40 in 2010 and has been profiled in Inside Memphis Business Magazine's Power Players, which spotlights the top 400 business and community leaders in various industries, each year since its inception in 2010.  Park has been featured in a number of national publications, such as Forbes Magazine, Fortune Magazine, Huffington Post, and Leader's Edge, and author Bruce Weinstein, The Ethics Guy, featured Park in his 2015 national release, The Good Ones: Ten Crucial Qualities of High Character Employees.  

He and his wife, Meredith, have two sons, Cooper and Cayson. Park is heavily engaged in the community, serving on a number of nonprofit boards and committees, including an appointed position on the Germantown Economic Development Commission and Regional Board Chair for New Leaders. 

Jeremy graduated in 1999 from the University of North Texas and was distinguished as the University's Top Marketing Student. He was raised in Weatherford, TX, spent eight years in Los Angeles, CA, and now lives with his wife, Meredith, and two boys, in the Memphis, TN area.

Corporate Giving for Growth: leveraging GIVING to differentiate your business, engage employees, and attract customers for GROWTH

As stated in Forbes Magazine, “Companies without social impact culture will soon be obsolete.” Consumers today want to see companies physically engaged and making a difference in their community; and they’re making purchasing decisions based on it. High performing employees, likewise, are choosing where they want to work based on community engagement and development opportunities. So, as a company, how do you use corporate giving and charitable efforts to differentiate your business, attract and retain top talent, and engage customers for growth? Jeremy C. Park will show you how by sharing The Three Truths, Trends in Corporate Philanthropy, and proven strategies and tactics that will give you a competitive advantage by defining your purpose and leveraging corporate GIVING to transform your business into both a catalyst for your community and an engine for organizational Growth.

Giving for Employee Growth: how to empower a culture of GIVING to attract, develop, and retain top talent for organizational GROWTH

Top talent and high performing employees, especially those of the Millennial generation, are now choosing where they want to work based on community engagement and development opportunities.  Their expectations are changing, demanding things like the flexibility to use company time for their volunteer service.  So, is your company on the cutting edge and taking advantage of the opportunity to both become a catalyst in the community and a magnet for top talent?  Jeremy C. Park will share trends and changing employee expectations, and will provide proven strategies and tactics for empowering a culture of GIVING and service at the office that will allow you to attract, develop, and retain high performing employees. You’ll find that weaving purpose and philanthropy into your normal business routine can be easy, fun, and productive; and learn how things like Community Calling Cards can become engines for organizational GROWTH.

Giving for Personal Growth: how to achieve success in career and life through giving back

Are individuals in your audience looking for greater purpose in life? Seeking new ways to further their careers? They key to achieving success and happiness can be found in the service of others.  When someone’s purpose is clearly defined and they understand how to GIVE in order to build relationships that will allow them to GROW, their life and the lives of many others around them can be transformed. Jeremy C. Park will inspire and help individuals in your audience define their purpose, then equip them with strategies and tactics that will transform them into catalysts for your community, allowing them to stand out, build influential relationships, make an impact, and realize their dreams through meaningful involvement that benefits others and leaves a lasting legacy. 

Increasing Corporate Giving for Nonprofit Growth: how nonprofits can better leverage their current resources to increase corporate fundraising and volunteer recruitment efforts

Nonprofits today face myriad challenges, including increasing need for programs and services coupled with higher levels of competition, decreased financial support, and shrinking volunteer bases.  It’s becoming harder each year to raise money and awareness for nonprofits, to draw large crowds at fundraising events, and to recruit and engage the needed volunteers to assist in the efforts.  The good news is that Jeremy C. Park fully understands these dynamics and works on both sides of corporate giving and securing funds for community projects.  Park will share how nonprofits can be creative and better leverage current resources to stack the deck with individuals and businesses, in order to engage key stakeholders and funders, recruit volunteers and ambassadors, and take advantage of social media and free opportunities to raise visibility for a cause or effort.  Park’s strategies and tactics will empower nonprofits to focus on relationships to increase corporate sponsorships and fundraising efforts, to raise the number of volunteers and attendance at events, and to grow the overall audience and market potential for the future.
