Jayke’s favorite TED talk is “Why Leaders Eat Last” by Simon Sinek because it examines the physical and mental traits that leaders have in common and the tendencies and characteristics that good leaders have.

We asked Jayke to tell us a little more about himself and his talk so all of our attendees and followers could get to know him before the day of the event. Below is his response:

A “Why” is the driving force behind anything that you attempt to accomplish. If you have no purpose, although you may accomplish great things, you are missing out on the important personal growth that comes with affixing your actions and drive to something bigger than yourself. This talk will take a brief analysis of influential, relevant people who made history and prove that although they are known for their impressive feats, they only could achieve those goals through a strong and direct “Why” or purpose. People like Ghandi, Oprah, Shakespeare, MLK, Plato, Da Vinci, and Einstein- although each accomplished amazing feats- all had one underlying motive that was essential to the success of their goals. Everyone wants to change the world. This is an indisputable fact. Whether they want to change the entire world or just their personal world, humans have an innate desire for innovation. Although many try to make a global impact, the majority will fail. Some give up, some run out of time, and some never had a clear idea of the world that they wish to see and cannot easily explain why it is that they want to make that change.

Thanks so much for all that you are doing to make an impact Jayke!
