Clients including the US Air Force, IBM, T-Mobile, AT&T, Marriott, Cardinal Health, Accenture, Nationwide Insurance, Walmart, ABC, Deloitte, Aflac and JP Morgan Chase, Honda, FOX and Goodyear absolutely RAVE about the energy and engagement from their attendees and the success of their programs when working with Jon and the Bore No More!™ team.

Engagement Expert

Clients hire Jon as an engagement expert because he delivers unmatchable energy along with his unique ability to creatively combine a business or inspirational message with an entertaining twist, keeping your audience directly in touch with the content while they’re enjoying the process.


Jon is an expert at communicating, entertaining, running effective meetings and engaging an audience, keeping them actively involved in the event. Quite simply, he has mastered the ability to inspire, inform and entertain while skillfully relating to every audience.


Jon believes in creating moments of “SHOWTIME.” This is the moment we need to create IMPACT in our work, our life and the lives of others instead of merely meeting expectations. We need to rekindle the passion in who we are and what we do and look for ways to add value to our relationships without necessarily spending more money.


Jon is the author of Boring Meetings Suck: Get More Out of Your Meetings or Get Out of More Meetings; The Best of the Best, and Unlocking the Secrets: Learn Powerful Magic (DVD).


In 2008, Jon was named one of the top 40 business professionals under the age of 40 by Business Journals newspaper. He also was awarded the “CV Perry Advocate for Children Award” in 2008 for his ongoing efforts and fundraising for children with life threatening illnesses through his “Miracles & Magic” program.

Keynote Speaker

When Jon is the keynote speaker, he speaks from the heart. He’s not a comedy magician who decided to turn “speaker.” He’s a father, a husband and a guy who’s worked in the warehouse, flipped burgers, driven a forklift, sat in the cubicle for years, made cold calls, dealt with corporate America, made more cold calls, grew a highly successful sales career, managed a national sales team across 52 offices, flew in private jets with billionaires and even had the stereotypical corner office with the company Mercedes and country club membership. He “gets it” and “it” relates well to both the event planners and audience members.

Master of Ceremony

As a Master of Ceremony and live event and engagement expert, Jon is often asked to host, script and produce events and shows. This has opened doors for multiple television appearances (National: ESPN, The Food Network, Outdoor Channel, Lifetime. Regional: NBC, ABC, FOX, CBS), as well as being the spokesperson for several corporations. As a comedy magician he has been the opening act or appeared with artists such as The American Idol Tour 2007 & 2008, Rascal Flatts and many others while performing in Sydney, New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, London, Las Vegas and many more.

Boring Meetings Suck!

Meetings, the cornerstones of collaboration, inspiration, and progress, have suffered excruciating humiliation at the hands of every day meeting organizers and attendees. Gone are most agendas, participation, focus, and follow-up that are the lifeblood of great meetings. Instead, too many meetings drone on like some sort of soul-crushing, walking-dead zombie robbing workplaces of joy, productivity, and time. But there is good news: meetings can be saved…by you! Based on the top selling book, this high energy and entertaining session delivers many “Suckification Reduction Devices” to make your next meeting more efficient and effective whether you are the host or merely an attendee.

It’s SHOWTIME... and Life Isn’t a Dress Rehearsal

Let author, speaker and entertainer, Jon Petz, be the first to tell you to STOP meeting expectations! At this moment, it’s time to create impact in your life, at work and in the lives of others—instead of merely meeting an expectation. These moments of impact (SHOWTIME moments) can present themselves at any time and when you’re least expecting it. This entertaining and thought-provoking keynote speech allows your attendees to see and experience the importance of every aspect of what they do and how they can identify ways and methods to further the impact they create. This comes in many forms from service-oriented experiences and interactions to every day phone calls, meetings or daily activities. If you’ve heard the signature 7 of Hearts story, this is the program that features it and inspired the newest book.

Passion, Pride and Innovation

Having passion and pride in what you do starts with yourself. Passion in your daily activities originates with doing your best work while having the most fun. For exponential results, it’s about going the extra mile, even when no one is watching. Are you willing to make a commitment to constantly improve who you are and what you do? What can be the results if you do? As the keynote speaker, Jon delivers just this. The attendees walk away with a new feeling of passion for what means the most to them and how they can apply that to both their personal and professional lives.
