Association for Talent Development (ATD), in partnership with the Fox Valley SHRM Chapter proudly presents guest speaker, Jonathan Fanning!
All of Jonathan Fanning’s programs draw from the lives of servant leaders and organizations who have left a lasting positive impact on the world around them. Inspiring anecdotes include lessons from William Wilberforce, Walt Disney, Harriet Tubman, Nelson Mandela, Margaret Thatcher, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Winston Churchill, and Martin Luther King. “Who are you BECOMING as a Leader?” introduces the two ingredients that the greatest leaders all have in common and a simple formula for enhancing leadership in your own life and organization. In this thought-provoking speech and workshop, Jonathan shares lessons from the best leadership development organizations in the world as well as heart-felt examples of applying these lessons in Fortune 500 companies, small entrepreneurial ventures, educational institutions, and at home! Participants will create their own “Simplest and Most Effective Leadership Development Plan” and a framework for coaching and developing leaders around them.

A traumatic car accident and several other “Frying Pan” moments in the middle of Fanning’s career as a management consultant to Fortune 500 companies triggered a quest for a deeper sense of purpose, meaning, and significance. “Who are you BECOMING?” and “Who are you helping others to BECOME?” became central to Jonathan’s life, businesses, and speaking. With over fifteen years of experience coaching leaders, from Fortune 500 executives to sole proprietors, Jonathan has developed expertise in the principles, practices, and challenges of creating a worthwhile vision and becoming the leader capable of the worthy pursuit.
Fanning has built several successful businesses, including the largest franchise within a national children's fitness company and Entrepreneur Adventure, which helps young people experience business start-up and ownership. Jonathan shares his message with organizations around the world, inspiring with relevant stories, strategies, and practical application steps to help audience members challenge the status quo.
Jonathan lives in NY with his amazing wife, Dominika, and two angelic little girls, Ella and Maya.Schedule of Events:
