Discovering Your Unique Talent to Change the Course of Human Destiny.

Keynote Presentation by Political Speaker Jay Townsend

Nobody has traveled your journey. Nobody has your story. Nobody has your eyes or your voice. Nobody is as fitted as you to tell your story, to speak your truth, to write your book, to make your mark, or to better the lives of others in the unique way that only you can.

Jay Townsend’s keynote weaves inspirational stories of unsung heroes who have changed the course of human destiny; stories that touch and inspire others to discover and recognize their own special talents, gifts and capacity to improve lives.

“I am in the business of changing lives,” says Jay, “by changing the way people think and the way they feel about themselves. I help people discover their hidden talents, and inspire the self-confidence required to advance their mission and live their passion.”

Jay is known for his exceptional ability to paint pictures with words, to summon the unconscious mind of his audience and engage the imagination of his listeners. He has spoken on politics, policy and history at the U.S. Military Academy, the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, scores of political gatherings, colleges, universities and as a frequent guest on FOX News.

He has worked as a speech coach, speechwriter and communications consultant in four different Presidential campaigns, dozens of U.S. Senate, Gubernatorial and Congressional races and coached more than 300 political candidates during his 30 year career as a communications coach.

He has thrice won national awards–Best Television commercial produced for a gubernatorial candidate; Best Persuasion Mail produced in a Presidential Campaign; and Best Newspaper Ad produced in a political campaign. He was the Republican-Conservative Party nominee for United States Senate in New York in 2010, and garnered 1.5 million votes in his race against Senator Charles Schumer.
