A traumatic car accident and several other “Frying Pan” moments in the middle of Fanning’s career as a management consultant to Fortune 500 companies triggered a quest for a deeper sense of purpose, meaning, and significance. “Who are you BECOMING?” and “Who are you helping people around you to BECOME?” became central to Jonathan’s life, businesses, and speaking.

He has also built several successful businesses, including a national children’s fitness franchise and Entrepreneur Adventure, which helps young people experience business start-up and ownership. He has inspired and challenged audiences with his message in 49 states and on 3 continents.

Are you ready for a game-changer? Are you sure?

Unleashing CREATIVITY changes everything: leadership, parenting, impact, finances, relationships, energy, career, communication, culture, travel, life!

Over two decades, we studied world-class innovators, wondering what the world’s most creative people, leaders and organizations might have in common. Could their strategies and tactics be applied intentionally in our lives?

We discovered a blueprint: 5 powerful and practical strategies to unleash creativity. We’ve now taught these habits to organizations around the world, with profound ripple effects. Jonathan’s TEDx Talk on this topic won “best speaker” of the conference.

Lessons and memorable anecdotes come from all walks of life as well as Jonathan’s personal experience implementing these lessons as an entrepreneur, parent, educator, and with clients large and small.

You’ll experience: the Innovator’s Equation, Harvard of the Underclass, Einstein’s Hour, a “Self-Weeding Garden”, a World without Poverty and How to get a Free Boat!
