GCYP Pacesetters: Foundation for Conversation
Join us for a conversation with Jonathan Parker on the importance of conversations.
MEET THE SPEAKER
Jonathan is a visionary leader, conversationalist, and speaker whose life was transformed by understanding the art of conversation. Jonathan did not speak until almost five years old—but has worked, researched, and practiced to become an adult who is known for engaging conversations and powerful public speaking. He uses his story and expertise to help leaders in businesses and non-profit organizations become more skilled communicators and conversationalists—not to mention more successful, both personally and professionally.
Jonathan has been speaking for more than a decade. He has been a keynote speaker on national stages and has communicated to global audiences. He shares the ideas from his TEDx talk, "Conversations are Never Forgotten," in workshops, small-group coaching, and corporate training. He is a community leader, entrepreneur, CEO of the nonprofit All Good Things, and the founder of The Conversation Leader.
Jonathan’s work and life serve the same purpose: to inspire and empower the people he meets. He lives in Greenville, South Carolina with his beautiful wife, Jessica, and his sons, Titus, Judah, and Zion.
