Jason’s storytelling strikes a note of integrity and honesty rarely seen. His story, a compelling and very personal journey, coupled with his witty self-deprecating humour fully engages his audience and leaves them with life-changing messages that resonate for years. Never lecturing, Jason simply challenges us to rethink our traditional perspectives on high-performance in business, sport and life, and asks us to explore how we can achieve personal success more effectively and with greater fulfillment and joy.

Who we ARE in the world, has more to do with our efficacy as professionals than what we do or how we do it.

CONTEXT: Having recently experienced his dad’s death; in their final moments together Jason paused to reflect that our purpose here on earth boils down to some bare essentials. What do we stand for? How do we choose to treat people? And, how will we be remembered? Essentially, old age is a thief—it can steal our mobility, our sight, our hearing, our intellect and even our dignity. But, the one thing that’s off limits, the one part of us that can’t be taken—it’s our legacy!

OPPORTUNITY: Jason’s personal coaching legacy not only includes a winning record, but the peace-of-mind that he has set his athletes up with a healthy sense of self and the tools to deal with whatever life may serve them. Building strong relationships based on trust, compassion, love and respect is just one of the ways he brought out the best in his athletes—both as competitors and citizens. Jason will inspire you to reflect on why and how you do what you do… and what you aspire to for your personal and professional legacy.


  1. Reflect on the “why—how—what” of your professional day.
  2. Learn how the legacy we aspire to is directly linked to who we ARE as professionals.
  3. This is a wonderful heartfelt presentation that will serve to deepen the purpose and resolve of your organization’s members as they move along their journey.
Professional working legacy = why you work + how you work. There’s no way around it!
