We invited Jacob to our military hospital to speak about resiliency. Jacob's visit occurred just as COVID-19 concerns were starting to become mainstream and we are glad he spoke with our healthcare team before the epidemic hit locally. He did a great job connecting with our healthcare workers as he shared his story and life lessons. I saw some people become misty-eyed as he made an emotional connection, and I heard other people referring to their "sunglasses" and "superpowers" long after he left. I would definitely have Jacob speak again in the future. He is a gifted speaker and he was very professional from pre-booking through the day of the event.
After interrupting an attempted robbery in college, Jacob was injured and sustained serious injuries and numerous medical complications. He had to drop out of college and journey through over two years of full-time rehabilitation. Ultimately, Jacob went on to earn a Bachelors and Masters Degree, and work his way up from an entry level position to a top executive in a $50 million-dollar organization.
His personal story and the stories of many others who have overcome seemingly impossible challenges form the basis for his toolbox presented to audiences throughout the country with an energizing, engaging, and inspirational approach.

Jacob's TEDx talk given entitled "Why sunglasses help me work...and how I got myself to wear them" highlighted Jacob's journey and the many techniques he used to reach personal and professional success.
Jacob shows up early, stays as long as requested by the meeting planner, and loves building long partnerships with his clients.
Here is what his clients are saying:
"Jacob did a fabulous job presenting his story at our offsite...genuine, passionate, authentic. He made a powerful impression on so many from the Barbie team...myself included."

"Let me just start by saying that Jacob Green didn't have an easy task. Far from it. He was expected to inspire 150 people from 8 different functions and levels that work in one of the most iconic brands of all times: Barbie. Oh, and he had to do that in the Ace Theater Downtown, a venue in which generations of artists such as Charlie Chaplin and Katy Perry have left their mark. Jacob, once again, overcame every obstacle and challenge and WOWed the audience by delivering a great message, in a really enthusiastic and relatable way and the best part, completely tailored to the event`s goal and theme. He was acclaimed by many as the best part of the event and is now an extremely valuable Mattel partner."

"Jacob Green has been given the gift of adversity, experiencing a devastating head injury and a debilitating disease at an early age. Most people would have folded, but Jacob has only become stronger and better. His message is one of HOPE, meaning, and purpose. I have worked with some of the most celebrated and inspirational speakers in the business, including Ken Blanchard, Dennis Waitley, Mike Vance, Meg Wheatley, and Steven Covey. None have had more impact than Jacob Green and no one does a better job of connecting with his audience. Jacob provides a wonderful combination of message and messenger. His story is simply unforgettable."
