About Jack

As a professional speaker, Jack Stahlmann has inspired and educated hundreds of organizations.

By providing a malleable message that can be customized for any organization, Jack has presented everywhere from backrooms at small companies to the penthouse of Fortune 500 offices. Jack's entertaining and informative presentations are built around his experiences in Los Angeles as an actor, producer, director — and of course, a waiter.

In 2002, he launched his own production company which created several films that enjoyed international success. The Fifteen Minute Show, an extremely low-budget feature film that was produced for less than $1,000, was the darling of the 2003 New York International Film and Video Festival. In 2004, he launched his most successful project, The Lift, which was featured in five film festivals worldwide. Freelancing in the directorial ranks, he was instrumental in creating the Margaret Cho stand-up show, Cho Revolution, working as the Second Assistant Director.

As an actor, his shining moment came in a co-star role on the CBS drama Cold Case, where he played a wimpy park ranger. He also appeared on Days of Our Lives and several regional commercials.

Jack is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post and currently resides in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Why Jack?

Jack is the 85% guy.

Jack understands that 85% of your audience just might be thinking, “Oh no, not another cheesy speaker!” Well, those are his people! He has a fun, conversational style and is the sort of guy you want to have a beer with after the presentation — especially if everyone gets a drink ticket.

Jack provides a spoonful of sugar with the medicine.

His primary focus is to educate audiences with new approaches to old problems, but he is an entertainer at heart. When you bring in Jack for your event, you get the content your team needs and your group gets entertained along the way: Everybody wins.

Jack really customizes the content.

Seriously. He has 7 topics (er… six-and-a-half, actually) that you can mix and match any way you like to ensure that you are getting a one-of-a-kind tailored presentation.
