His presentations are entertaining, energetic, and loaded with actionable information. Combining music and video with his engaging stories from the legends of rock, Steve creates an experience that is much a concert as a keynote.

"What can I say about Steve Jones? … well to give you an indication of his connection with the audience, after he closed his presentation to vibrant applause, he was approached by new 'groupies' lined up twenty to thirty deep, waiting for book autographs! Some people even took selfies with him! Steve was engaging, entertaining and knowledgeable. His content was universally relevant to customer-facing work and he further customized the presentation just for our group. His upbeat energy, sense of humour and humble demeanor endeared him to everyone, and the substance of his message really hit the mark – if we do something special to differentiate our service and delightfully surprise our clients, they will become loyal fans… it was the perfect keynote! People were talking about his session all day long."

- Moses Bar Yoseph, TD Bank


"Hey Steve, wanted to thank you again for being a part of our program last week in Charleston.  The Chairman’s Club event was a huge success.  We’ve received a lot of compliments about you and your remarks.

As I mentioned to you, I heard you speak at last summer’s FICP meeting at Half Moon Bay.  I really liked how you mixed rock & roll music / bands with your message.  I thought you did a terrific job in Charleston of tailoring your remarks around banking, even using the Regions “green” on your slides.  One of your first slides -- “Fannie Mae vs. Maggie Mae” – really got things started off on the right track.  Your remarks were very entertaining and had a strong message about branding and the customer experience."

- Brad Bradford, Regions Bank

"Steve Jones was by far the biggest hit of the conference. Attendees were asked what the highlight of the conference was for them, and the name 'Steve Jones' came up over and over again!"

- Rachel Cleland, Marketing Association of Credit Unions
