Jarom Smith is a Leadership Speaker and socio-emotional expert. His work has been featured by Forbes, Yahoo, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and many more.
Though he speaks most often to youth and young adults, his message of resilience has benefited businesses and associations. He helps people gain powerful influence by focusing on what they contribute to a group, organization, or society rather than hiding it under a bushel. Not only does this benefit the world, but it has remarkable effects on our relationships, businesses, and mental wellness. I worked in the film business for a long time, and though it turned out not to be my thing, I did learn a lot about the ability to influence others, even celebrities. It had nothing to do with making sure they knew his value. Instead, it was the other way around.
