About Jon Burkhart

Jon is best known for being an award-winning international keynote speaker, innovation strategist, and author of "Newsjacking". Through his consultancy TBC Global, he inspires brands to rethink the way they do business, helping them find their more impactful story.

In his consulting, he’s helped thousands of leaders at all levels solve problems in surprising ways that lead to business growth and better company culture. In his workshops, Jon uses his firecracker curiosity framework to help clients be more quick and clever with their marketing and adoption of new technology.

Before COVID, Jon spoke about creativity and innovation for brands and conferences in 26 countries. In fact, he’s one of very few to speak at the world’s largest innovation festival "South By Southwest" eight times, and now he serves on their advisory board. For Cannes Lions, he created a new “happy hour workshop” format which led to his closing ‘beernote’ where he summarises conference themes with the light touch of an improv comedian.

You can find his work in places like Rolling Stone, Fast Company, and The Guardian.
