Your speaker needs to help your attendees reach their goals with actionable tips – not just fluff. And you need someone with the ability to empathize and understand where your listeners are coming from.

This is where Jake Thompson excels. It doesn’t matter your audience or event size: Executives, entrepreneurs, athletes, and anyone with an ambition to be better benefit from hearing Jake speak.

Key Lessons

A competitive spirit drives growth and change, even when the competition is only within yourself.

Every successful pursuit requires accountability – from your teammates and yourself. Learn why these are so powerful, how your team can implement accountability to build a Championship culture.

When you compete every day against your own previous best, your choices can create a domino effect of positive choices and outcomes.

The Focus of a Champion

Stay Locked In to What Matters Most

Discover how successful people stay focused on the right tasks that move their business and life forward. Your team will be challenged to sharpen their aim on a powerful WHY and pair it with their very own Competitor’s Scorecard, the secret weapon that winners use every single day..

Your team will learn the importance of “action over motivation” and how the right focus can enhance grit, accountability, and movement toward an individual and team goal.

Don’t get distracted by the things that don’t move your career and life forward. Stay focused on what does.

Key Lessons

Avoid the unnecessary sidetracks and stay on course to achieve your goals faster.

When you define the steps that will get you to your goals, what may seem impossible at first suddenly becomes doable.

Every successful pursuit requires accountability – from your teammates and yourself. Learn why these are so powerful, how your team can implement accountability, and how daily goals help with both.

The Game Changers

How Competitors Get The Sale

The sales industry is ultra-competitive, and it takes a lot to stand out. Fancy business cards or flashy accessories don’t make you stand out, and they certainly won’t give you that edge to close the deal and get the sale.

Being a Competitor gives you that edge because Competitors close the deal.

Jake teaches teams how to make the sale through the power of competition. Learn why the best sales teams are full of Competitors, and how harnessing that competitive energy will help you exceed your goals and grow your sales. This talk helps each member of your team discover their inner Competitor through the Compete Every Day mindset.

Throughout this 60-minute keynote, Jake reveals the key characteristics that define a Competitor. In sales, mindset is key: You have to be driven to continue knocking on doors and making calls even after hearing the word “no.” This isn’t a line of work for just anyone — but it is perfect for Competitors. In sales, Competitors can thrive.

You’ll leave this talk with a better understanding of how a Competitor thinks, how you can implement this same mindset with your team, and how this approach can elevate your company to sales growth and new heights.

Key Lessons

Learn how to think and act like a Competitor in order to win. It isn’t about doing everything perfectly, but growing and improving every day.

Grit means “strength of character” and “courage and resolve,” and it’s a major part of sales. Learn how to build grit so your team weathers the toughest storms, keeps spirits high, and continues pressing toward your company’s goals.

Competitors use every yesterday, from the bad to the good, to decide how they’ll improve today. Learn how your team should embrace the habits of successful Competitors, who focus every day on being better than yesterday’s best.

It’s not fun to win against an unmatched opponent; similarly, unbalanced sales teams aren’t healthy for a company. Competitors know how to work well with others to ensure they both continue to grow and help others grow, too.

Beat Yesterday

From “What If” to “I Did It!”

Jake reveals his step-by-step process that helps you clarify your goals, establish the routines that serve as the foundation to reach those goals, and a plan of attack to make those goals future benchmarks. Our goals, whether they’re personal or professional, sometimes take years to reach, and don’t include the easier, default milestones you can check off this week or month.

Don’t just talk about your goals: Achieve them. Jake will show you how.

Key Lessons

Avoid the unnecessary sidetracks and stay on course to achieve your goals faster.

When you define the steps that will get you to your goals, what may seem impossible at first suddenly becomes doable.

Every effort, every success, every mistake, every time you strive to be better all add up to get you closer to your goals. It’s not about a flawless ride to success, but a journey that makes you stronger along the way.
