tailored just for you.
Jason never delivers the same speech twice. We utilize a detailed pre-program questionnaire, a simple yet effective three question survey of your attendees, and a thorough phone conference to explore your specific objectives. These proactive methods of communication, mixed with Jason’s highly intuitive style, help maximize customization on many levels.
“Jason was wonderful! I was very impressed on how easily he added in things specific to our members. It’s actually rare for speakers to do that. We try to get them to but more often than not they still give their set speech with maybe just a line or two at the beginning specific to the audience. Jason really made it sound like the entire speech was written just for them, we couldn’t have asked for more.”
– Patricia Dischler, National President of NAFCC
