Jake is fantastic to work with! He led 2 sessions at our national meeting & they were the best attended & highest rated of 12 offerings for over 1200 attendees.

Jake is the consummate professional. His preparation and attention to detail are clearly hallmarks of his and his focus on our goals came through in all he did. Our team was incredibly impressed with his seemingly innate ability to listen & learn to create & customize presentations that spoke to our organization. Jake’s a winner and he can help others get there too!

Scott Sugerman

Director of Training, Genentech

I have been following Jake’s blog for a number of years and always appreciate his endless energy and no-nonsense approach to overcoming challenges. We had Jake speak at our 2022 sales conference and he provided an even better in-person and motivational experience for our team. His willingness to engage on a personal basis and to take time to understand how we’re building our business made him a crowd favorite.

John Mina

CEO, Risk Strategies

“So glad we utilized Jake for our sales team. I found the messages to be relevant to both life and career, simple to embrace and easy to implement.

Jake delivered the principles in a very relatable, upbeat and positive style and really helped the group to appreciate more how they are accountable for their own success and personal growth. The lessons acted not only great reminders but also highlighted new tactics on evaluating personal effectiveness and efficiency that will go right into action with our team.

Enlightening, impactful and applicable. We definitely got better as individuals and sales professionals as a result.”

Todd Green

VP, Titleist

After attending Jake Thompson’s two sessions at the Michigan Realtors Achieve Conference, especially “Focus Like a Champion”, I have made improvements immediately.

His Competitor Scorecard has helped me so much, I had to share it with my office, and my whole board. I’m confident this one tool, will dramatically change your daily focus, and help you accomplish more and be more productive during your day.

Whether you are bringing your people together in person for the first time in a while or simply trying to get a jump start on 2022, if you are looking for an inspiring, motivating speaker that will deliver an impactful and meaningful message to your team Jake is your person!

He worked hand in hand with us to understand our business and tailor his content, and engaged with numerous members of our team outside the main session. He was authentic, professional, and gave us a system we could take with us to improve every aspect of our lives – as people and professionals. THANKS Jake!!!

Jake was an absolute pleasure to work with! He has infectious energy, great talking points and provide incredible value in his presentations!

I will definitely be working with Jake again in the near future!

Jared Black

President, Florida Staffing Association
Jake was fully engaged, entertaining, and committed to presenting a unique approach to being successful in a competitive industry! He provided several action items for each of us to take away with and help focus on the daily grind. Jake exceeded expectations. He did not shy away from answering questions and making sure each individual left the room feeling better than when they entered. We would highly recommend Jake Thompson for any event needing a motivational speaker!

Bailey Garrison

Rhino Medical Services
Shortly after our firm celebrated a strong first year in business, Jake encouraged me to keep the momentum going! He supported me in establishing and rolling out our 3 Core Values in our annual Kick-Off Meeting. Jake was the perfect opener as he took the time to craft and deliver a message that was not only motivating but unique and relatable to our business and team! He was extremely effective in engaging the audience and leaving everyone energized and ready to tackle the new year. I would highly recommend Jake if you and/or your team are needing some extra fuel and fire!”

We recently wrapped up a workshop with Jake Thompson and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had our full development team join in – these are the individuals who are tasked with generating revenue for our important mission. Jake worked with us on balancing priorities, tasks and habits to ensure we exceed goals through our talent and hard work. We learned a lot and we laughed a lot!

It was an incredible learning experience that we would recommend to anyone.

Mandy Hamilton

Senior VP, National Breast Cancer Foundation
What a motivating week! We hosted Jake to speak with our soldiers, NCOs, and Officers to invest some Leadership and Motivation into us to Compete Every Day! He was so passionate about his message one NCO told me today ‘After hearing Jake speak, I wanted to run out of the doors to counsel my soldiers! He made me want to re-enlist (in the Army) for another 6 years!’ Definitely worth the investment! If you’re in the market for someone to spark a light with your team, I could not endorse Jake more – you won’t regret it!

Rebecca Knox

US Army

We had Jake speak at our annual company meeting this year to our entire leadership team! The team loved his message, passion, and action items! His stories throughout his presentation made the entire session very relatable. It was a great experience and we are looking forward to working with Jake and his team in the future!!

Jason Markowicz

Managing Partner, Fitness Premier
If you are like me and want to invest in the growth of your team, Jake is your guy! He presented a 2 hour, onsite workshop talking all things growth mindset and how we could each be better leaders and teammates. In the following weeks, I have seen positive changes in the attitudes and actions of my team, both professionally and personally. I 100% recommend Jake to inspire, motivate and teach why it is so important to compete everyday!

Angie McGilvrey

Owner, APEX
Jake was just what the doctor ordered for our annual team meeting this year. His message was clear and energizing! Our team is still Competing Every Day thanks to Jake and his time with us. If you want your team to get the mindset needed to elevate their game, then I would highly recommend having Jake come talk to them. Money well spent!

Travis Dillon

The Marketing Arm
I hired Jake to capstone an all-day business event with a small live audience but a livestream audience of thousands. We added him to the agenda late in the process, but working with Jake proved to be one of the easiest parts of the project. He was available and responsive in the lead-up to the event, and he was right on time and ready to work on the big day. His presentation was creative and directly on point with our audience, and the feedback we received has been very positive. I look forward to working with Jake again if and when the opportunity presents itself.

Jake is an awesome speaker. He kept the athletes, parents, and coaches engaged throughout it. These young ladies took a lot from the talk about being a better teammate and wanting to be remembered for that. He helped us realize that we are competing daily with the person in the mirror and wake up ready to be better than the day before. He is a great motivational speaker, came early, and stayed late and talked with some of the athletes individually who had some questions. It is a no brainer to have him come speak with your team.

Jamie Siegel

Head Volleyball Coach, Flower Mound HS (TX)
Pre-COVID19, Jake was originally scheduled to give an in-person presentation to our staff of 110 in late March. He quickly pivoted to provide a thorough, engaging and tailored virtual presentation. He was readily available before and after the presentation and provided tools to our team to apply the “Compete Every Day” mindset to our professional careers as well as personal lives. We look forward to the day where we can have him deliver another presentation but in-person!

Maragaret McGraw

I first learned about Jake and the “Compete Every Day” philosophy when I read his book.  I’ve been listening to his podcast ever since, and I knew he would deliver a highly motivational message to our faculty and staff to kick off the new school year.  Jake took time to meet with me and get a feel for what the staff needed and what our focus for the year would be.  His message was spot on, and the staff found it inspiring and uplifting.  Having Jake speak at our convocation was a great way to kick off our year!

Dr. Melinda Domain

Assistant Superintendent, Ennis ISD (TX)
We brought Jake in this Fall to speak to our athletes at the University of Central Arkansas & he was awesome! He talked to them about how to ‘Compete Every Day.’ His topics were relevant & he really related to the athletes! I would highly recommend Jake if you are looking for someone to motivate your athletes or motivate your office workers!

Natalie Shock

University of Central Arkansas
Jake kicked off our 2019-2020 basketball season speaking to our basketball team, coaches, athletic directors, and administrators. I spoke with Jake ahead of time about the background of our team, and the high expectations we have for them. He absolutely nailed it! His message spoke volumes to our players, coaches, and administration. He challenged our kids and taught them about competing in school, life, and sports. All of the information Jake shared is content we can continue to build upon throughout the season. I highly recommend you invite Jake to come motivate your team!

Our leadership students were inspired by the goal-setting workshop. Many of the students have referred to the goals they have set and are determined to achieve them.

David Norton
