Virtual or In-Person Keynote Speaker on Communications Skills and Stories
A former screenwriter, news producer and winner of national and international awards for network television, Jason Reid shows his audiences how to sell their ideas and influence others through the art of magnetic presentations, and strategic storytelling.
Why settle for just a speaker when you can have a great storyteller?
Conference attendees have to take in a lot of information, and they learn best when they’re being entertained. They also need insight that’s useful, actionable, and memorable. Jason has it all covered.
Imagine a presentation that provides the right mix of energy, fun, and big ideas. A presentation that helps make your conference something attendees will recommend to others.
The Importance of Great Storytelling
Research has long shown that stories are the most powerful method of communication. They can be used to build connection, establish credibility, illustrate crucial points, and overcome objections.
However, not all stories are created equal. Some stories inadvertently send the wrong message, while other stories lack the “legs” to make them compelling, memorable, and shareable.
Jason can show your audience how to craft their story to send the right message – a message that engages people and inspires them to action. But it doesn’t stop there. They will learn simple but powerful presentation techniques that will give their stories a touch of Hollywood magic – making them memorable, funny, and immersive as well as authentic and natural.

We asked Jason to teach all our staff more about storytelling. Jason was willing to pivot to an online session that was smoothly delivered and kept our staff totally engaged! Jason worked with us to incorporate relevant examples of our work. It was a great session and we would recommend Jason for your training session.
