"I just wanted to say thank you for arranging for Jarrett to come speak at the TOI conference. He was PHENOMENAL! We have not had such a packed room during our opening session and people kept talking about his presentation long after he left."

Meeting Planner

"Jarrett was really fantastic! He engaged people prior to the breakfast. He stayed to sign autographs and take pictures. Jarrett is definitely a 'feel good' speaker. He shared some incredible stories of what it is like to grow up with Walter Payton as your father. The entire audience enjoyed him thoroughly."

Meeting Planner

"Jarrett Payton spoke to our students about the inspirations that molded his life. He was so comfortable and animated as he talked passionately about hard work, integrity and ambition. As fascinated and intrigued as our students were, Jarrett's enthusiasm and joy were equal to his audience. Jarrett's rapport was genuine and appreciated. We, students and faculty, walked away with our spirits soaring!"

Teacher

"When someone tells you an ex-football player, son of the greatest NFL player of all time is coming to talk to you about motivation, you can't help but be excited to feel a part of history. Jarrett reminisced of times with his father that were both endearing and heartfelt. He spoke about being part of a team, seizing every opportunity, and never giving up. What resonated most with me was that life was about choices. There is no doubt we were touched by his honesty, humility, and his passion. Most importantly, I think I was reminded that in life, everything must be done from the heart."
