Speaking Engagements


Jason speaks regularly to groups large and small. They range from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and from large conventions to small conferences.

He most popular presentations are listed here for your convenience, but he’s always happy to speak around a conference theme or on a prearranged topic.

Giving a Lift
Jason is the creator of “Giving a Lift” — a web series in which he gives car rides to strangers. For this presentation, Jason brings several short clips and helps audiences discover just how much we have in common with the lonely, the wanderers, the homeless and the hitchhikers. Jason can also film a ride exclusive for your speaking engagement with your CEO, president, event lead or conference chair, etc. Audiences will enjoy riding along as new friends learn lessons for life and just what it means to give a lift.

The Miracle of Opening Doors
Through inspiring and humorous personal stories, Jason describes his journey from a selfish teen to the guy who opens doors. But audiences discover the real lesson isn’t about the door, it’s about looking over your shoulder.

The Joy of Failure
One of Jason’s greatest achievements is how often he’s failed. Speaking with candor and surprising transparency, Jason details how failure can strengthen emotional and mental muscles.

The Origin of the Christmas Jar
Since 2015, the novel nearly no one wanted to publish has sold nearly a million copies and fuels one of the most unique holiday giving movements in America. In his moving presentation, Jason tells the deeply personal behind-the-scenes story of the book and the tradition it spawned.

The Long Lost Art of the Handwritten Letter
Every year Jason writes hundreds of handwritten letters to friends, family and fans around the world. Using personal stories and a bit of history, Jason inspires audiences to remember the magic of opening their mailbox and pulling out a small envelope adorned with a cancelled stamp.

The Miracle on Bus 6
Based on his popular school assembly, Jason describes how a childhood experience on a school bus changed the trajectory of his life. While the memory is anchored to his youth, the lessons are valuable to anyone at any age who’s ever struggled to find their place.
