The Mark of a man is not found in his past, but how he overcomes adversity and builds his future.
Quitting is not an option. – Jason Redman
COMPANY / ORGANIZATION FEEDBACK
Jason translated his personal experiences and challenges as a Navy SEAL into tenets applicable to anyone seeking professional and personal excellence. His story and message—and the way he delivered it—captured the attention of the room and kept it. I feel privileged to have had LT Jason Redman as our keynote speaker. If you’re looking for a speaker who will rivet the attention of your audience, bring them to their feet in a standing ovation, and keep them talking about your event long afterward—you want LT Jason Redman.
As the local community newspaper our goal was to bring in a speaker whose message would resonate with everyone. Jason nailed it. Whether they were business leaders, athletes, or students, Jason gave them all something to improve their performance. Everyone left fired up and proud to be an American. For me the most important message was: NEVER quit!
Jason’s message is moving and powerful. He kept the audience fully engaged during the entire program. Jason took time to talk with me prior to our event to get to know our membership’s wants and needs. He couldn’t have been easier to work with. A true professional, gentleman and hero.
Lt. Redman is a remarkable man, hero, and as a school, it was an honor to host him for the day. Our students will forever remember Lt. Redman
Thank you so much for giving our company the pleasure of meeting, listening and being inspired by such a great man, Jason Redman. He had an amazing message that I took to heart: Never give up and we can Overcome anything.
LT Jason Redman exceeded our high expectations for a closing keynote speaker at our recent IT conference. Many attendees actually delayed their departure plans to hear him speak, especially after he took the extra step of attending our networking reception on the previous evening. He delivered an inspirational message that got people thinking, brought them to their feet, and had them leaning forward in their chairs from beginning to end. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a speaker.
We have received rave reviews on your presentation and the opportunity for people to meet you afterwards via your book signing. Your inspirational speech was exactly what we needed and wanted for our event.
Jason Redman far surpassed our expectations.
In twenty minutes, he blended an amazing number of emotions with antidotes that left us laughing, left us with great pride, left us with sadness and finally left us with tears as he concluded his speech. I have listened to many great leadership and motivational speakers and Jay is simply awesome. He has a natural leadership ability and a stage presence that commands instant respect, he has a humble self deprecating sense of humor, he has a naturally good communication ability, and an incredible personal journey to share. I find that great speeches force people to think and Jay did that extremely well.
We actually had clients say his speech “changed their lives.”
As a SEAL operator, I had the honor of serving with some of the best warriors and leaders in the United States military. Jay Redman’s humble and direct account of his journey growing up in the SEAL Teams, overcoming much personal adversity, and coming to understand what it is to be an effective combat leader and officer is remarkable. His life is the epitome of the Never Quit spirit that I stand for. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for inspiration to become a better leader or overcome adversity.
