Keynote speaker Jeff Havens is easily the most unique corporate presenter in America. He helps people succeed in various aspects of business, delivering training solutions and strategies under the motto that “improving your business doesn’t have to be boring!”

Why you should book speaker Jeff Havens

  • Jeff makes learning easy. With his entertaining keynotes, you are guaranteed to learn effectively and be inspired to improve.
  • He can work with all kinds of audiences: for example, clients from government, academia, small businesses or Fortune 50 companies frequently re-hire Jeff to speak at their arrangements.

Over the past decade, Jeff Havens has become one of the most in-demand presenters in North America. His truly unprecedented ability to deliver high-quality, extensively-researched education in an undeniably entertaining way has earned him dozens of repeat clients, all of whom appreciate Jeff’s insistence that we’ll all improve better and faster if we actually enjoy the learning process.

Jeff firmly believes that making learning fun is the quickest, cheapest, and most effective way to create a culture where people are eager to continually improve. Whether you want to improve your leadership or inspire more innovation, communicate more effectively or eliminate generational tensions – if it’s important to you, Jeff will make it fun.

Decoding Your Customers! – Perfecting the Customer Experience In Four Simple Steps

Key Takeaways:

  • How the drive for convenience has changed in the past 30 years, and what that
    means for how you design and sell new products and services
  •  The effect of constant connection on customer behavior, and how smart businesses have learned to think smaller in order to grow
  • How most businesses vastly underestimate the importance of marketing their products, services, and ideas, along with two essential types of marketing every
    business should engage in
  • How the universal desire for meaning can inform your interactions with customers and drive greater sales
  • Absolutely no buzzwords. That’s right, you will not hear ‘advocate,’ ‘tribe,’ ‘brand ambassador,’ or ‘rabid fan’ once in this keynote. How’s that for a refreshing change
    of pace?

Interview with Jeff Havens

Who or what inspires you most?

Paul Newman. He made enough money to satisfy himself, but decided he wasn’t done working. So he dedicated the rest of his time and energy toward charitable endeavors. His is a path I would like to emulate.

How are your keynote presentations unique?

Every one of my presentations combines the takeaways of a ‘traditional’ keynote with the entertainment value of a comedy show. I had a background in both education and stand-up comedy, which isn’t common. So my audiences end up laughing as much as they learn.

What is the most unique experience you have had as a result of your job?

The thing I enjoy the most is getting to talk to people from all different backgrounds and industries – white collar, blue collar, Republican, Democrat, urban, rural, and everything in between. It’s helped me realize that we’re all a lot more alike than we are different.

However, the most unique experience would be when I delivered my keynote dressed like a medieval pageboy in order to help with the Renaissance theme of the conference I was keynoting. That was different.  I’ve also presented in a giant blue mohawk (different conference). So if you need me to help promote your theme, I can do that.

What types of results do clients experiences after attending your keynotes?

The most common comment I receive is people really appreciating that I can weave entertainment and education together in a way that gets points across without it feeling like a lecture. The second most common would be that people appreciate that I simplify complicated issues in ways that make action seem not only possible but easy.

Can you give three tips for creating a more innovative company culture?

Good question! This is actually going to be the subject of my next keynote, and I’ve just gotten started on it.  But I can only give you two tips, because there are only two things anyone needs to do in order to innovate. Step one is to phrase an existing problem or a potential opportunity in the form of a question. (“How can we entice customers away from our competitors?” or “What would make airline travel more enjoyable?” or “How can we save on our electricity costs?”) Questions like these are the first step of innovation.

The second (and final) step is to allow yourself time to think. We don’t do enough of that, and innovative solutions ONLY occur by way of thoughtful reflection. So an innovative culture requires people to ask questions, then set aside time to devote toward thinking up solutions to them. That’s really all there is. I realize this wasn’t a funny answer, but I promise the keynote will have plenty of laughter.
