Teams with grit persevere through anything. This is critical in business today.

Problem solvers, full of original ideas, collectively tuned into a shared purpose.

Resilient teams are vision-led, yet granular focused. On beliefs, habits, and controllables. Dreamers and doers.

Who do the work and compete everyday against themselves, not others. Each day, you get a better version of your employees.

Employee mastery, easier said than done.

Transforming your people into assets isn’t achieved through vanity perks. Doughnut days, summer Fridays or a WFH set-up. 


What they deeply desire are the teachings and tools to thrive in their role, make an impact, and grow as people. Unlock your Competitive Edge with a keynote speaking event by Jake Thompson. 

Transform comparison into competition.

Embrace a new type of competition. Beyond the labyrinth of comparison to others, into productively competing against themselves


Self-competition pushes your employees to their limits… to show up every day, battle-test their limits, and realize their true potential. 


This is how you build a culture of performance.

We recently had Jake come and speak to many of our leaders at an event focused on the pursuit of excellence and working through change and adversity. From our first initial conversation Jake was fully engaged in learning about who we were and how we operated. The presentation the evening of our event couldn’t have been better. He touched on specific points that applied to our teams. He’s prep and execution was flawless. The feedback was nothing but top notch. Jake is authentic and has a special set of skills that can take a message and relate it to a person or team. As a team we’ve already talked about other ways we can engage Jake to help develop our high achievers. We look forward to a continued partnership with Jake!

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!

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!

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!

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.
