I hired Jason to deliver his "Changing the World 101" education program to our students at Plymouth State University. I hired him after a mutual friend introduced us, and we met briefly to talk about what he does and what we need.
I get dozens of cold-calls a semester from so-called leadership and motivational speakers. They are all well-spoken, have shiny brochures and cool websites, but not one has demonstrated any real experience doing anything other than motivating people (to do what, I still don't know).
Jason is the anti-thesis to the run-of-the-mill speaker. For such a young man, he has an incredible amount of practical experience, and he has made all of it available for others. He does this, because he is for real. He is changing the world, and he is seeking others to join him, in their own way.
In addition, Jason has maintained relationships with several of our students. He has inspired our students to do real international service work, and he continues to be a mentor well after his program is over and he has left campus. He does't charge consulting fees for this. He doesn't send me this as reasons for why I should bring him back. I hear it from my students. That's why I have hired him again, and why I will continue to do so.
Jason is the real deal: He's a twenty-something changing the world. Quite inspiring for this late thirty-something.
