Why connect The Promise Topics through music, comedy, and showmanship? Easy. SCIENCE. Studies have shown that when we’re laughing or listening to music, our retention levels go up by 65%! Without them – we’re looking at a lowly 12%. (Yikes!) But when your audience is laughing, engaging, singing and (yes) sometimes even dancing – they FORGET to check their phones, they let calls go to voicemail, they absorb and adopt what they are learning – and oh yes – they even come back for more. That’s conference gold.

The Promise: The Engagement Experience

Work/Life Balance

Motivational Keynote Speaker Jason Hewlett’s unique ability to bring to life the legendary performers of stage with incredible musical impressions (Michael Jackson, The Temptations, Diana Ross, Louie Armstrong), helps audiences make the connection to their own “performances” as they impact those in their world. With relatability and insight, he poses powerful questions to every person in the room:

  • What is your Signature Move? 
  • Are you keeping The Promise to your ‘audience’ - those customers who count on you to deliver mission, vision, and value – every time?
  • Do you embrace the amazing talents of each member of your team, filling your workplace with a culture of encouragement and trust?

Filled to the brim with smart business strategies and solutions for gaining and retaining clients, Jason’s message also integrates tools and techniques to take Work Teams to entirely new levels. When that happens, employee engagement soars, job fulfillment catapults, overall health improves as stress levels plummet, and then? The work team transforms into a Work Family.

Through hilarious and touching stories, analogies, music, artistry, and corporate-appropriate comedy, Jason expertly takes your audience on a journey unlike any presenter in the world.  This message empowers listeners to take stock of their relationships with customers, teammates, family and friends -- and take a second look at the promises we all make, keep, or break with ourselves.

The Promise moves audiences equally between tears of laughter and those of joyous resolution. With humor, heart, and tremendous connectivity, Jason inspires audience members to step into the positive shifts necessary to empower their lives both at work and at home.

The Promise of Innovation Meets Reinvention

Creating Rock Concert Worthy Expansion

Here’s what Jason Hewlett knows from experience - when we’re laughing, we’re learning. When we are smiling, and music is making a connection, our retention levels go through the roof - people feel empowered with tools to innovate, share ideas, break out of broken ‘norms’, blast through ruts that keep teams rooted in what was, and allow them to set new standards for success!

In a hilariously engaging and dynamic way, Jason Hewlett ignites the spirit of innovation amongst audience attendees by infusing his message with an inventive and entertaining showcase of music artists that will not only have them learning – but have them on their feet.

For millennials? Lady Gaga, to Bruno Mars to Cee-Lo Green and Justin Timberlake.  Gen-X and Y? No problem -- Journey, Guns n’ Roses, Michael Jackson, and Ricky Martin.

Rock concert stuff? Absolutely! Energy? Off the hook! Strategic thinking? Empowered solutions? High-flying expanded thinking tools? Yes – all of those and more.  

Audience members will learn to:

  1. Have the courage to step into the void
  2. Embrace the power of association
  3. Adopt the wisdom in thinking like an artist

Your audience will laugh until it hurts, enjoy music they love, and gain the profound insights they need to best innovate and reinvent.  This message is a game-changer for any conference. Ready to step into reinvention?

Seventeen Years in the Making

How One Speaker Kept the Faith, and Delivered on The Promise

Fresh off his recent closing keynote at The Million Dollar Roundtable (MDRT) Annual Conference, Keynote Speaker Jason Hewlett, received a standing ovation from the more than 15,300 audience members and realized the cumulation of a vision and goal set in 2001 when he embarked on his speaking career:  To speak on the mainstage at MDRT.

“During my entire youth there were MDRT plaques lining the hallways of our home,” shared Jason. “My Dad, John Hewlett, being in the upper echelon of the most successful in the world in life insurance and financial planning fields, his lifetime membership in MDRT made it my goal as well. When I began my career in 2001 looking for big stages to perform on, asking my Dad where I should begin, he recommended MDRT because they had the best speakers at their conferences he’d ever seen. I made my first call to them, and I’ve submitted to be on their stage as a speaker every year since.”

For Jason, it was a home run, Olympic medal, life-changing moment. “Well-earned, well-deserved, and we are quite sure just the tip of the iceberg for what is next for this show-stopping entertainer and keynote speaker” shared Karen Harris, CEO of cmi speaker management. “He lights up the stage with humor, impressions, and an animated presentation that is just out of this world. More than that, however, he CONNECTS with messaging that is relatable, heart-warming, and exactly what audiences are looking for today.”

The topic he took the stage with was his signature, “The Promise” which compels audiences to take a long look at the impact their own “promises” make on the lives around them. While fun, engaging, and completely entertaining – the keynote has poignant moments that leave audience members feeling transformed, inspired, and motivated to take positive action in their lives.

“There is so much heart and humanity that just pours out of every speech Jason delivers,” shared Julie Escobar, industry consultant. “He is loved by audiences, adored and respected by his colleagues and peers, and a dream for meeting planners to work with. High entertainment, low ego, and a double-watt personality – all make him a speaker companies want to hire again and again.”

In a world that can certainly use a lot more fulfilled promises and big dreams coming to fruition, Jason’s journey to keynote for one of the most prestigious events hosted by the world-class organization of MDRT sends a resounding message to all of us. Keep your promises. Keep the faith. Stay focused and driven. Extraordinary things can happen when you do.

Great work, Jason. We can’t wait to see what event you’ll headline next.
