HUSBAND | LEADER | SPEAKER
Jason Kunz’s love for speaking dates back to his elementary school days when teachers would complain to his parents that he: “Speaks so much it seems as if he’s speaking to himself at times; he just doesn’t stop and it distracts my class…”
Thankfully, he’s learned the fine art of listening in his adult years, as well as the art and science of influence - learning from some of the top keynote speakers, leadership consultants, and behavioral neuroscientists in the country – studying under their tutelage for years. Jason understands there is a science to speaking with impact, to causing influence. A formula that if practiced will make immediate impact in our life and those we work with.
Daily, Jason is a Cultural Excellence Evangelist at 3M, working at the front lines with operational leadership to drive a key cultural initiative across 200+ global sites. Outside the office, Jason is the Co-Founder and President of one of the fastest-growing charities in the Midwest, Best Christmas Ever (BCE), an Ambassador for Lululemon, and in August 2019, he married the seven-time running “World’s Sexiest Woman”, and together they launched AFTRYOU – a community of like-minded, high-performing couples on mission to redefine modern-day marriage.
He understands the challenges business leaders, non-profit leaders, HSE professionals, salespeople, and top performers face as he’s been in their shoes. He has a gift for connecting with any audience, bringing hard science AND relatable story to his talks, and most importantly, driving change.
He’s been recognized as a top performer at 3M, a member of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Future Leaders Institute, and a recipient of the University of MN’s President’s Graduate Student Leadership Award. He’s a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH).
His energy is unavoidably contagious, his speaking undeniably inspiring, his mission, unequivocally clear – to entertain, educate, and empower every audience he’s privileged to engage with.
"The most powerful time to give thanks is when everyone else is complaining."
- Jason Kunz
