Unlearning is the first step to getting out of our own way and thriving.

I develop training programs facilitating unlearning, helping people and teams find their own ways to success in a world overrun with distractions.

My workshops and customized talks are ideal for companies and teams experiencing challenges in productivity and creativity or events and conferences looking for inspiration and new ideas on the future of work.

If you’re interested in having me speak at your event or develop a workshop for your team, let’s talk.

“Jake came in and hosted a workshop… it was a transformative experience for me and our team. The takeaways we got from this experience will forever shift our workplace culture for the better.”

-Carolyn Rush, VP Strategy, Worn

Talks & Workshops

I regularly run short engagements with companies all over the world. If your team is looking for inspiration, focus, or help overcoming distractions and bad habits, we should talk.

Keynote presentations and talks are customized for each client, and are typically either 20 or 60 minutes.

Workshops can be tailored, customized and developed to fit any creative or cultural challenge and are best between 60 minutes to a 3-hour session.

I’ve Been Hired to Speak By

“Thank you so much for such an inspiring and fun
lecture; it was the best I’ve heard. I really appreciated how you
shared your real experience with us.”

-Aurora Kaye, Student at University of Oregon

Courses, Retreats, & Offsites

Long engagements are ideal for individual and team transformations. If your team is looking for facilitated change and coaching, or your company’s offsite or conference needs some meat on its bones, let’s talk.

I’ve lead retreats that have lasted an entire day or a three day weekend intensive, and also lead sessions as part of team off-sites.

Every year since 2010, I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses, so I’m comfortable building out 15 week curricula as well as week-long courses.

I’ve Taught Courses At

“I enjoyed your class a lot more than any other this semester. The course was genuinely fun and I remember laughing on quite a few occasions. You learn *and* you feel good simultaneously — this is rare. Thanks for cultivating that atmosphere; I don’t think I would have survived this semester without it.”

–George N., Student at City College of NY

“The Great Adventure” Retreat

I created “The Great Adventure,” an annual retreat in 2016.  The 3 day retreat was designed for people who are in transition; for people who feel like they need help or guidance in areas of relationships, careers, and risk-taking to live a more fulfilled life.

“One of the most remarkable, useful, and fun weekends I’ve had. It was expertly curated with enough openness to explore and make unexpected discoveries.”

-Dev Aujla, Retreat Participant

“It was such a magical experience, and definitely a highlight of my time in NY. Gigantic kudos to you, Jake, for setting the foundation for such deep connections.”

-Jenni Dawes, Retreat Participant
