Sometimes he leaves people speechless.
But more often, people cant stop talking about him. And to prove it, here are just some of the rave reviews from actual clients that Jon has inspired over the years.
Great job…you are amazing. Our company loved your presentation…we will be talking about you for a long time.
Wow…you were the best I have ever seen…thank you for making our awards evening a truly unforgettable experience…the way you were able to connect with everyone in attendance was astounding…we will see you again very soon.

I couldn't be more pleased after having you as our guest speaker at RossWorld 2006 conference in Atlanta…I was amazed, even though I had watched your promotional DVD and mostly knew what to expect. I still watched your performance with excitement. It was so wonderful to watch how you handled the audience and how they responded to you. You are truly a star.
But what blew me away was your performance on a personal level. It is so rare to work wih a guest speaker or performer who is so approachable and such a joy to be around. When you agreed to also attend our evening function, you really seemed to be having a good time, and that positive energy transferred to our guests. It was apparent that the audience really connected with you, as people just ambled up and started conversations as if you were an old friend, not a stranger thay had just seen on the stage for an hour that morning.
'Excellent session…best keynote I have attended!' 'Wow, how did he do that?'
Thank you again for wowing my attendees, making me look great, and just being such a nice person to work with. I can't wait until next time (yes, there will be a next time)!
Thank you for the fantastic performance at the 2006 GuideOne National Convention in Bermuda.
Your performance at our Top Star Awards ceremony was absolutely superb. You created a perfect setting for an exciting and professional performance—just like we were looking for. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to get to know our company and group and to be able to perform accordingly. Our executives and agents were extremely pleased with your entertainment and received compliments regarding your performance. You assisted in making this evening a memorable and huge success.
'I laughed until I cried…I need to see that again!'
Your attitude, enthusiasm and service orientation represent the true value you brought to GuideOne and this program. Your can-do approach really made a difference. The success of our event would not have been achieved without your expertise.
Jon Stetson is amazing in more ways than one. Hes always been right on the markfor a variety of clients. His work is fascinating, his humor has just the right touch, and his professionalism is world-class. If the stock market were as dependable as Jon Stetson, wed all be millionaires. At least in the corporate events world we have the reliable Jon Stetson. Hell do a great job for you, and that you can take to the bank!

We cant decide what it is you do best. Some say youre a great mind reader. Some say youre a great comedian and others say youre an incredible magician. What I do know for certain is that you amazed and entertained us completely and we are a tough crowd to please.

As Manager of the Project Office and Global Support Center, the task of attempting to keep up the momentum of a successful meeting by engaging a guest speaker isn't the easiest of assignments. I am pleased to say that Jon Stetson was not only engaging, but fascinating as well.
Jon made a lasting impression on our team; in fact, they are still trying to figure out how he knew just what we were thinking. He had a unique way of bringing our team closer together, while keeping it on a professional level. I would highly recommend Jon without reservation, for any corporate function.
My personal thanks for a great job. While we had a very successful meeting, your show was the part of the event everyone was talking about. The hour you spent with us did more to help us build our relationships with our clients than fifty business meetings would have. I feel we should give you a commission on all the business were going to do with those clients over the next year!
When you have 300+ people attend an event, you rarely make them all happy, but in this case all Ive heard is how much everyone enjoyed your show. This was a great opening to our semi-annual event and provided a real wake up call for the entire team. Your show set the tone for the meeting and that really helped make the overall event a success.
Jon is a remarkable talent, combining motivation, entertainment and mind-blowing magic. As important, he is always energetic, accommodating and in every regard, a true professional. His reviews are always the same simply phenomenal. He really knows how to work the room and adapt and cater to his audience. Jons performance has enhanced every event and I recommend him highly.
Anthem Blue Cross
The dinner was a smashing success! Frankly, the entertainment by Jon Stetson was probably the highlight of the conference. He really connected with the group and as a result he received a standing ovation at the end of his performance. I would highly recommend him to any organization.
We never guessed how universally amazing you would be for our staff and our clients! Adding you to the agenda was the icing on the cake in what has been recorded as a very successful conference for our company. Your ability to intuit and set the stage provided our conference attendees with a unique and what we know will be a frequently remembered performance. Thanks again for gracing our event and bringing with you your delightful wit, talent and charm.
Jon brought the group together with an amazing combination of skill, sleight-of-hand and comedy. A lot of people were hesitant about coming up to the front of the group, but he made them feel comfortable about it and never embarrassed anyone. We are still wondering how he does what he does. I've planned these events for this group for six years now, and have received more positive feedback from this one event than for all the others combined.
Jon is awesome! But one word cannot describe the magnificent, magical, fun-filled night that he provided to associates at our annual event. His humor, wit and genuine warmth won them over and had them reeling for more.
Thanks to you, I am basking in the glory of an extremely successful evening. You are a very talented individual and I am glad to have had the pleasure of saying I hired you.
P.S. That card left my hand, didnt it?

There was unanimous praise for your five-star performance and for your willingness to focus on the special needs of our event.

Thank you for making me look like the proverbial hero. Your magic and repartee were a huge hit, and as many people pointed out, you achieved this end result without ever crossing the line of good taste. Id have no hesitation recommending you. The pleasure was all ours!

Thank you for a most entertaining evening. Your card is now the first on my rolodex!
So often, the audience gets lost as sales meetings progress. But your participation eliminated this potential at our sales meeting. You created an alert and interested audience. I leave you with the comment of the day: ‘How did he do that? Great job, Jon!

We were most pleased with your performance, your adaptation to our special needs, your humor and personality. You are a prodigious and prestigious prestidigitator!

Advanced Rehab Systems, Inc.
Thank you for your patience, flexibility and input during our on-site rehearsals. You were invaluable!
We were so pleased with your performance at our company holiday dinner. Your amusing (and appropriate) interaction with the audience, your mystifying illusions, and your hilarious jokes met all of my expectations—and more.
You were truly able to tailor your show, relate to a group of young professionals, and instill the motivation we were looking for to make our kick-off event a success.
What a wonderful job you did as our master of ceremonies! Your talent added so much to the evening. I think only one thing Id do next time is ask you to pull a Billy Crystal and ride in on a horse!
One of the best tradeshow presenters I have ever worked with. . .If you are in need of a presenter who can draw and hold a crowd, aid in the sale or promotion of your product or service, and who is professional, flexible and entertaining, Jon Stetson is a perfect match.
You helped generate a lot of interest in our quality products. Youre a high-caliber professional, and your contribution to our success is sincerely appreciated.
We met our contact and lead goals for the show and are now convinced that your type of entertainment is essential to increasing our booth traffic.
I have to give you a lot of credit for this being one of the most successful shows weve ever had. We were also very excited to see your picture (and our booth) on the front page of the conference daily.
I especially appreciated the fact that you knew how to approach each person differently—and who not to approach at all. Guests came to me raving about how great you were—just what the host of an ‘ice breaker wants to hear!
Thanks to his ability to adapt his show around features we wanted to promote at our booth, bystanders were motivated to ask for more information on our products and services. His efforts directly resulted in a high show turn-out and valuable new customer leads.
We significantly increased traffic, interest and recognition of our company at the Boston Seafood show. FYI—a few days ago, I was at another conference, and I overheard a couple of suppliers talking about our booth, and how great your routines were!
Mar-Lees Seafood, Inc.
These were corporate training sessions with real content. But you brought them to life in an engaging and memorable waya real win-win experience for everyone. Thank you for making us look good!
We were just reviewing photos of your performance at our meeting, and what we saw was a relaxed group of professionals truly enjoying themselves. Your ability to burlesque the unique behaviors of audience members without having any prior knowledge of them was stunning.
You are the Prestidigitator Par Excellence, the Sultan of Sorcery, the Knight of Sleight of Hand!
The Health Care Group
Its always a pleasure to have you perform, and we very much look forward to seeing you again at our holiday party in December. In fact, we will be hard pressed not to have you entertain us at any future corporate function. (At least until we figure out how you do that ‘book thing!) Thank you again for another fantastic evening.
Nautic Partners, LLC
My experience is that its not all that difficult to be entertaining. And its not that difficult to be informative. What is truly difficult is to be informative and entertaining at the same time, and thats what you did so well for our client, Dunkin Donuts.
The night of the reception, I heard so many people say, Did you see what that guy just did? And Where did you find this guy? The great buzz continued for days. What more could I ask?
The HP team considered you to be a critical factor in achieving its objectives for the event—I know sales reps are still talking about you! Weve done two events together and I consider you to be a shoe in for any environment due to your extraordinary talents.

Starting the meeting off with your fantastic comedy and mind reading was the perfect way to engage and energize our weary employees after a grueling day in our crazy office. Have you ever considered 9-5 corporate mingling? We happen to have an opening!

What a fantastic and wildly entertaining performance at the seminar. You were unbelievable!
As a meeting planner for over 25 years, Im always on the look out for good entertainment. Ive never been as thrilled about my choice as I was last Thursday night. You are awesome! Booking your act should be a no-brainer for all meeting planners.

Your meeting with our planning group was time well spent in preparation. The night of the event, your reading of the audience and orchestration of the magic helped us accomplish our goal: to ensure that people work together, get to know each other and, above all, have fun. We took a risk, but your professionalism pulled it off for us in grand style.
Thank you for providing us with the best event ever. Doing eighteen shows in three different shifts over a weeks time must have been a marathon for you, but every performance was always great. Countless associates have approached me asking, Howd he do that? You most certainly made my job easier.
From the CEO on down, everyone here believes in you. You generated tons of qualified sales leads while keeping everyone entertained.
We particularly appreciated your flexibility. You did a great job of involving everyone, and your read individuals and the crowd perfectly—as if you knew each of them well.

Are you the devil? No, certainly someone as kind, gracious and superbly talented as yourself could not be Lucifer. Although after seeing several of your numbers, I wonder
We were so awed by your performance that we cant wait to see you again. Were trying to schedule a holiday event!

Ive seen shows while vacationing in Las Vegas that were presented by big names, and I have to tell you that I found your show more amazing than anything Ive seen in Vegas. I would recommend you to anyone.
