John Hall

Keynote Speaker | Author | CEO at Influence & Co.

Thanks for considering me for your event. Although this page is as full of accolades as you might expect of a speaking page, I’d consider the most important thing about my speaking to be my love of interacting with and relating to audiences. Above all, it’s important to me that an audience leaves a speech not only inspired, but also connected to me enough that they could come up and say hi afterward. I typically stick around a lot longer after my speech so I can really serve as a resource for my audience, and I’m always up for anything -- so even if something’s not listed here, don’t hesitate to ask.

Additional Speaking Topics

These topics are general because with each speech I work with the event organizer to decide on the best content for their audience. 

That prevents "canned" speeches and delivers more authentic content customized to each audience.
