If you’ve seen Jeff speak before, then you know that his rapid-fire combination of high caliber education and world class entertainment is wonderfully effective.  But maybe you’re not the only decision maker – and unfortunately, experience has taught a lot of people to think that educational sessions can’t be funny and entertaining sessions can’t be informative.  You know it doesn’t have to be that way, but how are you supposed to get other people on board?

Here’s how.  We’ve been asked each of the following questions before, and here’s how we like to answer.  It’s worked for us, so we’re pretty sure it will work for you too!

Who is this guy and what are his credentials?

Jeff’s spoken to more than 1,000 companies and associations across North America and Asia for the past 20 years.  He’s been featured on Fox Business, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Business Week, and more.  Those people can’t all be wrong, can they?

This is a serious event.  Are we going to get enough education out of this?

Absolutely. Just because it’s entertaining doesn’t mean it’s not educational.  Jeff interweaves plenty of humor with his educational content so that people are laughing and learning all at the same time.  Also, all attendees will receive a downloadable PDF with the major takeaways from Jeff’s presentation, along with statistics and strategies they can use immediately

Does Jeff’s delivery style take away from the message?

Actually, it does the opposite.  The entertainment puts people at ease, keeps them engaged, and builds trust, making everyone actually more receptive to the key takeaways than they would be otherwise.  That’s actually been proven. Click here.

He talks really fast and moves around a lot. Is that normal? Do I need to hide the coffee?

Jeff doesn’t even like coffee.  But Jeff’s energy is what makes people focus so they don’t miss a key takeaway.  If you watch the faces of audience members during one of Jeff’s presentations you’ll notice them smiling, laughing, and paying close attention. You’ll also notice that they aren’t staring at their phones.  When was the last time you listened to a keynote where nobody was looking at their phones?

What else can I expect from Jeff Havens as a keynote speaker?

First and foremost, an excellent presentation to an attentive and receptive audience.  You can also count on him making the entire process as easy and stress-free as possible.  He’ll help promote the event both before and afterwards, which will help increase attendance this year and plant the seeds for an even bigger event next year.  Everyone in the audience will get supplemental educational materials for continued learning – and they’re also going to have more fun than they have ever had listening to a keynote.


Hopefully this will help you convince your fellow decision-makers to try something new at your next conference or training event.  And if we didn’t provide enough information, contact us and we can arrange a conference call with your group!  We firmly believe that you can indeed provide serious solutions in a seriously funny way.  We know you do, too.  Now let’s get everyone else on board with us!
