Why Book JJ?

Former NFL Pro Turned Motivational Keynote Speaker

JJ Speaking

Less than 6% of all high school seniors go on to play NCAA men's football. In 2017, only 1.5% of all collegiate football players were drafted to an NFL team. The odds of playing at the highest level are even more astronomical when you're undersized and play one of the sport's most physical positions.

Good thing JJ Birden has never cared to know the odds of success.

He was never the strongest guy on the field—and at 5’10, he certainly wasn’t the biggest—but JJ knew how to seize his once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and maximize his success through dedication, perseverance, and hard work.

An NFL career spanning almost a decade helped shape the message that JJ Birden now delivers to audiences around the world. After seeing the successes and failures of others at the highest level, he developed a set of principles that others could follow to achieve greatness in sports, at school, at work, and most importantly, in life.

As an authority on human performance and mental coaching, JJ inspires and empowers audiences to seize the opportunities in their lives to achieve the greatness they are capable of. He has traveled the world delivering his dynamic and engaging keynote presentations to a wide spectrum of diverse audiences with different roles and job titles. The one thing that all of his audiences have in common? They want to achieve their brightest and most successful futures.

If you want to unlock your organization’s true potential and performance, JJ Birden has a message your team needs to hear. Some of the key themes and takeaways from his keynote presentations include:
