Boost Employee Productivity
And resilience With jake as your St Louis Event's Speaker

Looking for a Powerful Motivational Speaker to deliver a motivating business keynote at your upcoming St Louis sales or leadership convention?


If you want this year’s event in St Louis to be your best event, look no further.


If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that gritty teams are crucial to a company’s resilience and success. It’s this commitment that helps them…

They make sure that day-to-day operations run as smoothly as possible

They keep stakeholders
satisfied, dealing with any
issues as they arise
They drive the business toward its overarching goals and wider vision

However, instilling a thriving employee-oriented company culture is easier said than done. It boils down to more than bringing doughnuts in on Tuesdays and allowing the chance to WFH twice a week.

What employees really want is to work for a team that equips them with tools to thrive, empowers them to make an impact in their role,  and ultimately helps fuel their purpose.

That’s where Jake Thompson’s corporate keynote speaker services come in for your St Louis conference or event!

Start Embracing Competition
In A New Light
“As a popular convention keynote speaker and performance coach, I like to share what happens when employees fall into the trap or labyrinth – or whatever else you want to call it – of comparison.

Someone in the audience usually responds asking what the solution is, and it’s simple: competition. Not necessarily competition with others, but competition with themselves.

Self-competition is the #1 way for your employees to put their limits to the test and realize their potential.

The result? A winning culture, gritty and productive teams, and greater company resilience.

What To Expect From Me
As Your St Louis Event Speaker

Being a corporate keynote speaker and performance coach isn’t about delivering a generic speech, shaking a hand or two, and leaving with a check in my back pocket.

It’s about fully understanding your corporate, convention, or event audience, speaking your team language and teaching actionable steps for lasting positive change so that your event in St Louis is your best one yet. Some of the topics I cover include:

Outcome #1

Making small choices that lead to incredible success.

Outcome #2

Streamlining your daily focus to revolutionize sales.

Outcome #3

Creating a powerful network with robust relationships.

Outcome #4

Unlocking your potential via a ‘me vs. me’ approach.

Outcome #5

Understanding why action doesn’t require feeling motivated.

Outcome #6

How to create sustainable habits for your overall wellbeing and life.

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.
