I have enjoyed public speaking since my first presentation in grade school. The opportunity it provides me to meet so many people from all walks of life is very gratifying. My experience ranges from small intimate gatherings, key note speaker forums to emcee at galas and banquets.
My special interest is goal setting and team work and how it applies to every day life not just on the field. I strongly believe in youth mentor ship and literacy programs for all. I am currently working on a seminar that will focus on facing adversity. The roadblocks that life throws at you on a daily basis can either stop you in your pursuit of your goals or inspire you. I prefer to inspire whether it is speaking to a group of athletes prior to a big game or business executives at their annual conference.

"Jesse is a warm and articulate speaker who enjoys engaging his audience with humour and humility. As an Olympian and professional athlete he brings a context and life experience that captures the hearts of his audience. Listening to Jesse is truly engaging, and entertaining. Jesse would be a welcome speaker at any event."

“I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to listen to Jesse speak during the ASDC Annual Awards celebration with the young men that I coach in the sport of football. Jesse was a fantastic motivational speaker who controlled the room with his inspirational perspective on sport in general. Jesse being a world class athlete was able to make goal setting connections from the sports world and make them applicable to life. I feel that he would be an asset to have at any forum that is concentrating on goal setting and trying to motivate change in their association. I have used his speech to instill perspective in setting attainable goals for my young athletes.”

“From initial communication to event end; Jesse was an administrator’s dream to work with. He was easy going, genuine and sincere through all interactions. Jesse’s keynote address left everyone wanting more! His heartfelt story had intricately woven morals and insight into athlete determination. Well thought out, excellent execution and an inspiration to all!”
Miranda Sallis, Director- Alberta Sport Development Centre NW
Just wanted to say thanks again. Jesse's talk on goal setting and facing adversity was outstanding. You could have heard a pin drop while he was speaking. Several parents and student/athletes got their picture taken with Jesse, who stayed for the entire event.
I can't think of a better ambassador for your sport, you should be very proud. I have attached a picture.

A recent engagement was the Dance For Life Kidney Foundation of Canada gala dinner in Edmonton, Alberta.
“Your emcee style combined with wit and humor was exceptional and really stood out in everyone's mind. We have heard nothing but positive comments about the entire evening. We hope that you will be able to participate in next year's gala.”
