MARKETING & CREATIVITY SPEAKER
B2B SHOW HOST & PRODUCER
Already Have an Event in Mind?
Jay is in a fight with "best practices." But more on that in a moment...
Jay is an award-winning podcaster, an energetic keynote speaker, and a veteran content marketer and creator. He's served as a digital media strategist at Google, head of content at HubSpot, and vice president of content and community for the VC firm, NextView.
Jay’s podcast, Unthinkable, explores examples of work that seems crazy … until you hear their side of the story.
Jay's work has been cited in courses at Harvard Business School, by writers at The New York Times and The Washington Post, and by investors on TV's Shark Tank. One blog called him a "marketing antihero," causing Jay to immediately buy a Batman mask. Unfortunately, his wife does not allow him to wear it in public.
Today, Jay is the founder of Unthinkable Media, which helps brands create refreshingly entertaining shows about people who do great work.
"One of the must-see speakers."
- Joe Pulizzi, CEO, Content Marketing Institute
"Jay is truly amazing."
- Michael Stelzner, CEO, Social Media Examiner
Hosts "one of the hottest new podcasts out there."
- Entrepreneur Magazine
"A savant in all things creativity."
