Hello, Friend.
I’m Jack.
The Don’t Flinch Guy.

A bit about me.

Below is a bio I wrote about myself, but I made it look like someone else wrote it, so it doesn’t seem like I’m bragging.

Jack Stahlmann’s informative and educational presentations are built around his experiences in Los Angeles as an actor, producer, director — and of course, a waiter.

In Hollywood, he launched his own production company which created several films that enjoyed international success and was an Assistant Director for the Margaret Cho stand-up show, Cho Revolution.

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 commercials.

Jack graduated with honors at DePauw University and has been a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. He currently resides in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Live is nice.
But in a virtual world,
pants are optional.

Virtual OfficeMore and more, events are going virtual and not everyone is equipped, but Jack is ready. With a background in video production and copywriting, combined with over a decade of experience in customizing presentations, Jack is the perfect solution in a virtual world. He can function as your event emcee, but beyond that, he is able to work with your team to create content that is fun, fresh and relevant. And from a technical level, his basement studio offers three different sets, so your audience gets a good variety of eye candy. Not that Jack’s chubby, rosy cheeks aren’t enough eye candy to begin with.

I wrote a book. Sort of.
I co-wrote a book.
So I guess I half wrote a book.

“Days of Our Work Lives” is a single story written from two different perspectives. Designed as a flip book, it provides the reader with one angle written from the manager’s view, while the other angle is written through the eyes of his employee.

Our main characters, Jack (that’s me!) and Mark (my manager), arrive at work expecting a typical day, only to discover that their office has transformed into a set of a soap opera. Jack (me, again) is now the star of the soap, navigating his new world while trying to find his true role. Mark is thrust into the role of the soap’s director, delicately balancing the needs of his team with the pressures coming down from the network bosses.

It’s a fun, quick read and we got two Hollywood legends to pen our forewords. One side of the book is introduced Alice Hirson, a legendary actress with credits including Dallas and Ellen. And on the other side of the book, you’re welcomed by long time producer of Days of Our Lives, Roy Steinberg.

Some kind words from very nice, un-bribed people.

Jack’s message was perfect!

Jack did a tremendous job again, the attendees just loved him.  He certainly has the “IT” factor and people can just relate to him.  His humor is just great; it is always a pleasure to have Jack present!

My branch coordinators were arguing over who was going to get him first to come to their branch and speak.

Jack brings a unique blend of education and humor.  Hearing him speak is time well spent for any organization.
