Meet Your Keynote Speaker: Jason Hewlett

With over 2,000 presentations for Fortune 500 companies and clients, Jason Hewlett is a go-to for a highly impactful and entertaining keynote. Read more about Jason Hewlett here. Jason will be presenting "The Promise."

 The Promise is the highest level of engagement we commit to in any experience. It is stronger than a Goal, more powerful than a Commitment. Why set a goal when you can make a promise? What promises are you keeping with your patients, doctors, your team and yourself? What promises might you be breaking? Does your brand and the experience you project match the reality of the experiences.

Jason Hewlett demonstrates how to keep The Promise using "laughed till I cried" humor plus world-class music impersonations. This talk will touch your minds and hearts, while providing leadership and customer experience development.
