Testimonials 


As an experienced speaker, my team and I want to guarantee to provide two key things for your next event…


1. A great experience on stage —I’ve presented to audiences both large and small in a variety of different settings and contexts. As a presenter, I will use stories, comedy and humor to not only make a point but to keep your audience engaged and listening. They will leave with practical, applicable next steps to take with them beyond that session.

2. A great experience off stage —We know as a conference planner, there are a lot of details you have to manage and fire you have to put out. The speaker should be the last of your concerns, right? We’ve worked with event planners and colleges across the country and are frequently told that we were the easiest/most low maintenance speaker they’ve ever worked with.


What Others Are Saying 

"Jonathan's presentation, which focuses on key strategies including how to market yourself, lead movements and build important social relationships, gives student-athletes the resources they need to begin planning for success as college graduates.

Jonathan was a speaker at a summit we hosted on athlete mental health. It was a pleasure to have him as a part of our line up. He led a fireside chat with another speaker on the topic of destigmatizing mental health in sports. The conversation was insightful, open and honest. I was thrilled to have him involved, and thought he did a great job leading an intentional conversation on the topic. I hope he can be a part of events we hold in the future!

" After introducing himself and digging deeper into the needs of our student-athletes, he created an interactive and captivating program that helped inspire our student-athletes to strive for success not only in athletics, but also in future professions. By using personal examples and being vulnerable with our student-athletes, he was able to connect with us on a deeper level, allowing student-athletes to truly feel safe to ask questions and bring up concerns during the program. I would definitely recommend Jonathon if you are looking for an outgoing, impactful speaker who is able to connect to a diverse group of student-athletes."

"Howard U. SAAC just hosted him as a panelist at our Guys Talk event. Jones was able to provide helpful advice and share his own experiences, of how he deals with the societal pressures that are put on black men, especially in this climate of high racial injustice and police brutality. Our young men were able to connect and find a safe space to discuss various vulnerable topics. If you're looking for a motivational speaker, who is able to communicate on various levels, speak eloquently, and show their passion for helping young people, Mr. Jones is your guy. "

Jack Colquhoun

"Podcasting for Players allows institutions to provide their scholar athletes the ability to learn a new skill while having a tangible product to carry with them beyond their collegiate careers. Podcasting for Players outlines all you need to know to start and monetize a podcast. It also provides student-athletes the ability to take ownership of their NIL opportunities."
