Soft skills happen at the personal level

Technology is advancing faster than ever, and it can be difficult to understand how to think about the rapid changes in our virtual & real lives. The impacts of new developments are far-reaching, and it’s important to know how to navigate the shifting landscape of change. Jonathan is a professional development mentor at the world’s #1 technology incubator, 1871 in Chicago. He sees bleeding edge technology, and works with entrepreneurs to communicate their incredible advancements. Jonathan brings those experiences to the stage, and helps your audience see farther into the future than ever before.


As a Mentalist, Jonathan has to instantly create rapport with audiences and make them feel comfortable in unfamiliar situations. At the heart of this skill is influence & persuasion techniques that Mentalists have used for thousands of years to create instant trust. They also use these techniques to influence behavior, decisions, and the opinions of strangers; a handy skill to have! Learn how to protect yourself from those who would use it for wrong, and learn how to use it for good in your own life.


Mentalists & Magicians have been using misdirection to make sure their secrets stay. . . secret! Dive deep into the science of attention, focus, and leading interest with implications in networking, marketing, and beyond. Reclaim your sanity from all the digital distractions in your life!


This is Jonathan’s favorite term for “showmanship.” Every single interaction is an opportunity to present your best self to the world. If you understand the essentials of communicating great ideas, the money will follow. Jonathan will demonstrate incredible feats of mental performance, and then show your team how its done (and how to do the same in their sales, marketing, R&D, etc). Learn how to present ideas in a way that gets attention. Investor pitches, sales meetings, and beyond.


When designing a show, the first thing the performer asks is, “What effect do I want to have on the audience? What idea, feeling, or emotion do I want them to walk away with?” From that answer, the rest follows. The same goes for business. Entrepreneurs & leaders absolutely set their goals before they can reach them. With this presentation, be ready to believe that even the seemingly inconsequential can be a part of the greater plan.


With the smallest line and a little emphasis, you can turn the impossible into a mantra for success. Mentalism is the art of doing the impossible (and making it look easy). To the audience there’s no possible explanation, but to the Mentalist it’s just another day in the office. Jonathan will show the audience how to accomplish something that would normally take weeks, and a member of the audience will do it in moments.
