What to expect:

ENERGY! Seriously. I'm the guy to put on first-thing in the morning or right after lunch, when you want to jolt your audience awake. In Des Moines, the founder of CiWeek called me a "raging animal." At the Aileron Summit in Ohio, I introduced myself by riding a bicycle through the crowd as Queen's Bicycle Race blasted. My talks are fun, funny, fast-paced, and inspiring.

And what am I talking about? Change.

As editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine and host of the popular history podcast Pessimists Archive, I'm a recognized authority on change—why people resist it, and the importance of embracing it. I'll inspire audiences to make change in their own business, or inspire employees to embrace and create change in their organizations.

Below are his two most popular keynotes.

Keynote: The Most Successful People Embrace Change

What quality do all successful people share? After interviewing thousands of amazing entrepreneurs, Jason has an answer: They embrace change. It isn't easy and it isn't natural, but it's the most critical skill for succeeding in business and life. In this talk, Jason reveals the tactics and strategies for turning new challenges into opportunities—and he'll change the way you think about change. 

Keynote: Why People Resist Change, And How You Can Change Them

Why do people resist new things? It’s a question every company should consider—because in order to succeed, a company must change consumers’ habits and inspire its team to innovate. But none of that comes easy. Through Jason's work as Entrepreneur magazine editor in chief, where he’s interviewed the world’s greatest change agents, and his popular podcast Pessimists Archive, where he explores the history of resistance against great innovations, he's identified the barriers to change and the steps required to overcome them. In this funny and inspiring talk, Jason explains it all by taking his audience on a journey through time—telling riveting stories of why people resisted everything from coffee to the bicycle to recorded music, and explaining how today’s businesses and marketers can shape the future.

Keynote: How to Get Press For Your Business

Every entrepreneur wants press, but few understand how to reach out to a reporter and frame their story in a way that'll get attention. Journalists are like customers and investors: Before reaching out to them, you must understand what they want and how you can provide it. In this keynote, Entrepreneur magazine editor-in-chief Jason Feifer digs into his career — and his inbox! — to provide a useful and revealing guide to what journalists think, what they're looking for, and how to develop a press strategy that really works.
