Jason Hewlett Introduction

Our next speaker, Jason Hewlett, will address two questions:

1. Why set a goal when we can make a promise?
2.  And what promises are we keeping?

He’s delivered thousands of presentations around the world – ​performed in every major casino in Las Vegas – and is the author of the Facebook post entitled,​”I Saw My Wife at Target Today”​, which has been seen ​by more than ​100 million people.​ ​His talk will touch both our minds and our hearts today.

Ladies and Gentlemen…Jason Hewlett!
