Our 2023 Keynote Speaker

Jon Gordon’s best-selling books and talks have inspired readers and audiences around the world, and his principles have been put to the test by numerous Fortune 500 companies, professional and college sports teams, school districts, hospitals and nonprofits. 
While Jon is most commonly known for his leadership trainings and positivity work, his most recent book focuses on stress, anxiety and prioritizing mental health as an important part of overall wellness. 

The Kim Foundation continues to see a staggering number of suicide deaths in our community of working-age adults. Employers are the prime connection to this demographic by prioritizing mental health in the workplace and providing suicide prevention resources and information. Jon Gordon will speak to the role employers can play in their employees’ overall well-being with a message of hope and positivity that will resonate with anyone from the corporate world to the general community.

Jon’s other works include “The Energy Bus,” which has sold over 2 million copies, “The Carpenter,” a top 5 business book of the year, “Training Camp,” “The Power of Positive Leadership,” “The Power of a Positive Team,” “The Coffee Bean,” “Stay Positive,” “The Garden,” “Relationship Grit” and “The Sale.” Jon and his tips have been featured on The Today Show, CNN, CNBC, The Golf Channel, Fox and Friends and in numerous magazines and newspapers. His clients include The Los Angeles Dodgers, The Atlanta Falcons, Campbell Soup, Dell, Publix, Southwest Airlines, LA Clippers, Miami Heat, Pittsburgh Pirates, Truist Bank, Clemson Football, Northwestern Mutual, Bayer, West Point Academy and more.
Jon is a graduate of Cornell University and holds a Masters in Teaching from Emory University. He and his training/consulting company are passionate about developing positive leaders, organizations and teams.
