Levy first gained international attention as the founder of The Influencers, a private community and secret dining experience committed to bringing extraordinary people together. Over more than a decade membership has grown to include thousands of TV and movie stars, Olympians, Nobel Laureates, business leaders, famed artists, and royalty, among others.
Known for rapid fire discussions that unlock creativity, reframe challenges, and generate actionable solutions, Levy is earning stellar reviews from discerning audiences. His deep understanding of the science of connection, trust and community, proven from his development of The Influencers and his trainings for Fortune 500 companies, inspires fresh approaches to employee engagement, marketing, sales, innovation, PR, events, customer relationships, building brand loyalty and virtually any business topic that involves influencing human behavior.
His in-depth study of trust, influence and belonging were the topic of his 2021 New York Times Best Seller You're Invited. In it, he explores the surprising and often counterintuitive way people develop meaningful relationships both in person and virtually. His first book, The 2 AM Principle, explored the science of adventure by utilizing the latest research on peak human performance, neuroscience and psychology to help organizations and teams maximize success.
With an insightful approach informed by asking the right questions, doing his research, and collaborative preparation with clients, Levy delivers presentations that are highly interactive and filled with fascinating content, unforgettable stories and tales from his many adventures. A natural problem solver, he frequently brainstorms with audiences about their individual or organizational challenges — empowering fresh new approaches and actionable takeaways. As one attendee raved, “We all walked away with a new sense of inspiration. We actually began looking at challenges differently.”
In his free time, Jon works on outrageous projects. Among them spending a year traveling to all 7 continents, or to the world's greatest events (Grand Prix, Art Basel, Burning Man, Running of the Bulls, etc.) and barely surviving to tell the tale. Read Less ^

In a "rapid-fire discussion" with top creative and business people, Jon provided a unique and sharply-focused perspective that ignited the imaginative side of my brain into thinking beyond process and considering first behaviors, creativity and influence."
