"DO IT AGAIN!" - The Power of Creating Intentional Moments to Drive Sales, Service & Culture. / “DO IT AGAIN !” Creating Magical Moments with Your Customers

When was the last time you watched a movie that took a shocking plot twist that had you mesmerized? Witnessed a wedding toast that made you laugh, cry, and get goosebumps all at once? Or watched a magician perform an illusion and you gasped in surprise and delight and said, “HOW did you do that!? Do It Again!”

We start a task, a job, or a career usually hoping for recognition -- a little appreciation -- and a sense of accomplishment. For most people? There’s no sizzle. No surprise and delight reaction. No applause.

So, how do other people do it? Spark accolades and lead lives that feel elevated and extraordinary? The not-so-magical secret lies in between the Method . . . and the Effect. Magic tricks and illusions -- or effects -- all come down method. It’s the same thing with life. And business. And relationships. And connection. Once you pull back the curtain on the method and mindset you need to elicit the response you want -- you can begin to create your own significant magical moments. Once you do? The people in your life will want you to do it again and again!

In this impactful message, professional keynote speaker and business magician Jon Petz reveals a fascinating and entertaining look at how the world’s leading performers captivate attention and create wow-worth moments and how YOU and YOUR AUDIENCE can learn to do the same both personally and professionally.

Hashtag Worthy Leadership

If a member of your team were to describe you and your leadership in a hashtag -- what would that look like? What qualities and characteristics rise to the top of hashtag-worthiness? That's a difference-making question for many.

There has never been a more important time for leaders to step up and lead with passion and purpose. With compassion and creativity. With equity and empathy. In a world of constant change, disruption, and distraction -- people want to feel seen, heard, and appreciated. While that can feel like a tall order for leaders -- it all starts by identifying and delivering unique and memorable moments for your team members.

In this empowering message, leadership keynote speaker Jon Petz shares the kind of magic you can create for individuals and entire teams by adding simple moments of significance. By doing things a little differently. By cultivating an extraordinary human connection.

With impactful stories and engaging examples, Jon entertains and delights leadership audiences while delivering the ideas, insights, and how-to's to ensure their leadership is hashtag-worthy.

Significance In Simple Moments

Success and relationships in today's world? Are not finish lines, something we conquer or even single accomplishments. Mutually beneficial relationships are in fact a series of simple moments that matter to those we serve. They are what connect us as leaders and team members and service professionals and partners and human beings. It's how we re-engage the lost art of human connection.

Just showing up or meeting expectations -- even in a world filled to the brim with distractions -- isn't going to cut it. Not if what you want is to be remembered, appreciated, validated, and heard. Not if you want a powerful return on your relationships. Not if what you want is a life that has some spark -- some sizzle -- some magic.

In this timely and important message, motivational keynote speaker and author Jon Petz shares the extraordinary value in turning mundane moments into SIGNIFICANT, memorable – even MAGNIFICENT chances to positively impact not only your customers and colleagues -- but every little corner of your world and the people in it!

Ready to help your next audience have a little fun, feel engaged, entertained, and walk away with the simple shifts and changes necessary to get rock solid results and create a life that feels lighter, brighter, and more empowered?

Boring Meetings Suck!

Right? How do you get people to pay ATTENTION in a world that is nose-deep in distractions? How do you spin sales training that's going to move the needle on outperforming the competition? What's it going to take to get your leadership to innovate and communicate in difference-making ways?

First, you've got to upend the game board. Look at your meeting models with fresh new eyes and a willingness to reinvent to meet the way people listen, learn, collaborate, and engage.

Based on the best-selling book of the same name which has been featured on CNBC, The Wall Street Journal, ABC and CBS News, and USA Today, business keynote speaker and author Jon Petz shares how this hot topic is changing the way companies do business – and generating real world results.

Don't settle for boring. Or basic. Or the dreaded "same way it's always been done" ever again. Instead help your team fire on all cylinders, jet-propel your productivity and save all the time, effort, and energy you'd lose in dull discussions to set lofty, achievable new goals, take on tough competitors and nurture greatness within every member of your team. Your company is worth it – and so are they.

It's SHOWTIME! Perform To Be Remembered

It’s time to get unstuck from the “I’m just…” narrative. From the limited belief system that tells you that good enough is good enough. From the back-seat approach to life and career. It’s time to make every day an opportunity to shine like it’s showtime!

Entertainers and artists know that when the spotlight hits, it’s time to bring their best to the moment. Show up with all they have. “Leave it all on the stage.” When they do -- they create magical opportunities to impact the lives of every audience member. The cool thing is -- you can do the same!

In this perspective-changing message, motivational keynote speaker and author Jon Petz shares how every single one of us has the ability to add a little more magic and a lot more positive results to work, life, leadership, and relationships. How one simple shift can lead to improved human connection, peak performance productivity, a powerful sense of purpose, and days you can’t wait to get out of bed to show up for!

Enduringly entertaining, and filled with fun, your audience will walk away feeling ready to step into their own spotlight and show up in ways that will profoundly and positively impact their work performance and their lives.
