Jon Dorenbos Speaker Biography

Jon Dorenbos played 14 seasons in the NFL, notably making the Pro Bowl twice as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, as well as being the Ed Block Courage Award recipient and the Eagles Walter Payton Man of the Year. He also holds the record for the most consecutive games played in Philadelphia Eagles franchise history. Jon competed on Season 11 of America’s Got Talent where he showcased his skills as a sleight-of-hand magician, making it to the finals and placing third overall amongst over 100,000 competitors. He then put his talent on display as a guest on Ellen, who quickly became one of his biggest fans and advocates. Jon appeared on Ellen more than any other guest in the history of the show. He also has been featured on HBO Real Sports more than any other guest in the history of that show as well. He retired from the NFL after he was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition requiring 15 hours of emergency open-heart surgery.

Known for his great sense of humor and positive outlook on life, Jon uses his skills as a magician and his incredible life story to inspire audiences around the world. He wrote a book titled Life Is Magic that draws a roadmap for how to shut that self-doubting voice up by choosing to find happiness in every situation. Producer Mike Tollin has optioned the book and is making it into a feature film. The screenplay is being written by John Gatins, who was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the drama film Flight with Denzel Washington.

Recently Jon has headlined a successful Cirque du Soleil production on the Las Vegas Stripand is frequently hired by Tony Robbins to speak to his top customers from around the world - further demonstrating that he truly is a unique, world-class blend of entertainment and motivation.

An Evening with Jon Dorenbos. Jon's inspirational life story of triumph over adversity has been retold on national television in features by NBC, HBO, FOX Sports, ESPN, E! True Hollywood Story: An American Story, ABC, and CBS. Jon tailors his presentations to fit the needs of his audience. He inspires others by sharing his life experiences and NFL stories, relating them to corporate culture. He discusses the importance of discipline, teamwork, perseverance, and the acceptance of failure in achieving a common goal. In his words, “Live in vision not in circumstance.”

As a professional keynote speaker since 2008, Jon has motivated and wowed audiences including AT&T, Nationwide Insurance, Marriott International, Kroger Foods, Boeing, SAP, Black & Decker, Lincoln Financial, Nexxus, MGM Resorts International, Jackson Hewitt, Merrill Lynch, Taco Bell, Pappa John's, DigiKey, and numerous other Fortune 500 companies.

Live In Vision, Not in Circumstance: Overcoming Life’s Obstacles. When unimaginable tragedy struck Jon Dorenbos’ life at the age of 12, he found solace in sports and pushed through the pain of the past to go on to have a 14-season NFL career. And when his NFL career came to an abrupt end following a life-threatening diagnosis, he went all in on his other passion and became a renowned magician. Dorenbos’ story is one of overcoming every obstacle he has faced and in his inspiring, often tear-jerking talks, he reveals to audiences how they can do the same. In this powerful session, he draws from his own personal journey to demonstrate the power of courage and perseverance in overcoming adversity, as well as expand on the belief that progress can only be made by moving beyond the challenges of the past and having a forward-looking mindset for a better future.

Life is Magic. As a finalist in Season 11 of America’s Got Talent, Jon entertains and stuns viewers with comedic acts and magic tricks, proving it’s possible to overcome the odds—both in magic and in life.

The Power of Teamwork. Having achieved success at the highest level of professional sports, Jon Dorenbos is uniquely positioned to share insights on the pivotal role teamwork plays in achieving any goal. Drawing from his 14-season career as a long-snapper on teams in the fast-paced, hard-hitting NFL, Dorenbos outlines the core facets that power high-performing teams to make game-changing plays and illustrates the impact each individual has on team success. His action steps for strengthening basic team dynamics, such as communication, and uniting teams around a shared objective can be applied to organizations in any field.

Embracing Change. Change is constant and often uncomfortable. It requires pivoting from what you know and adapting to factors that are often beyond your control to be successful. Letting audiences in on his own life-changing moments, magician and former NFL player Jon Dorenbos leads a mindset-shifting session that encourages audiences to embrace change in their professional and personal lives and make the most of the opportunities it presents to refocus, reinvent, and achieve remarkable goals.
