Jacob is one of the world’s most sought-after speakers on leadership, the future of work, and employee experience... and for good reason!
He doesn’t deliver keynotes; he creates powerful experiences designed to create better leaders, transform organizations, and positively impact the lives of your audience. Jacob’s talks are customized, filled with both research and stories, and most importantly, they are actionable.
Coming from an immigrant family (The Republic of Georgia) Jacob was taught the values of hard work, fighting for what you believe in, and having a vision. He took a job after college working for a company that promised to treat him well and help him grow, but instead he was stuck doing cold- calling and PowerPoint presentations. Jacob quit shortly after the CEO made him fetch coffee. That was one of the last jobs he ever had.
Today, Jacob is an international best-selling author, acclaimed keynote speaker, professionally trained futurist, and entrepreneur with a global audience. Using his own proprietary research which includes surveying tens of thousands of employees and working with hundreds of CEOs around the world, Jacob designs each speech to be impactful, filled with stories, and backed by data.
His speaking topics focus on leadership, the future of work, and employee experience. His goal with every presentation is to show your audience the art of the possible, to inspire people to take action, and provide actionable tools to allow your people turn the possible into reality.
Jacob works collaboratively with your team to make the keynote align with your vision for a successful event, whether that’s for a group of ten CEOs or a packed house of thousands of team members.
