How One Speaker Kept the Faith, and Delivered on The Promise
Fresh off his recent closing keynote at The Million Dollar Roundtable (MDRT) Annual Conference, Keynote Speaker Jason Hewlett, received a standing ovation from the more than 15,300 audience members and realized the cumulation of a vision and goal set in 2001 when he embarked on his speaking career: To speak on the mainstage at MDRT.
“During my entire youth there were MDRT plaques lining the hallways of our home,” shared Jason. “My Dad, John Hewlett, being in the upper echelon of the most successful in the world in life insurance and financial planning fields, his lifetime membership in MDRT made it my goal as well. When I began my career in 2001 looking for big stages to perform on, asking my Dad where I should begin, he recommended MDRT because they had the best speakers at their conferences he’d ever seen. I made my first call to them, and I’ve submitted to be on their stage as a speaker every year since.”
For Jason, it was a home run, Olympic medal, life-changing moment. “Well-earned, well-deserved, and we are quite sure just the tip of the iceberg for what is next for this show-stopping entertainer and keynote speaker” shared Karen Harris, CEO of cmi speaker management. “He lights up the stage with humor, impressions, and an animated presentation that is just out of this world. More than that, however, he CONNECTS with messaging that is relatable, heart-warming, and exactly what audiences are looking for today.”
The topic he took the stage with was his signature, “The Promise” which compels audiences to take a long look at the impact their own “promises” make on the lives around them. While fun, engaging, and completely entertaining – the keynote has poignant moments that leave audience members feeling transformed, inspired, and motivated to take positive action in their lives.
“There is so much heart and humanity that just pours out of every speech Jason delivers,” shared Julie Escobar, industry consultant. “He is loved by audiences, adored and respected by his colleagues and peers, and a dream for meeting planners to work with. High entertainment, low ego, and a double-watt personality – all make him a speaker companies want to hire again and again.”
In a world that can certainly use a lot more fulfilled promises and big dreams coming to fruition, Jason’s journey to keynote for one of the most prestigious events hosted by the world-class organization of MDRT sends a resounding message to all of us. Keep your promises. Keep the faith. Stay focused and driven. Extraordinary things can happen when you do.
Great work, Jason. We can’t wait to see what event you’ll headline next.
This post is about The One.
How we treat The One who sits before us, if we engage fully, look them in the eye, or are glued to our phones and distracted when that person needs our attention.
The Promise to The One is to care for, help, love, and embrace The One in our lives that means so much to us...

Jason Hewlett is in a state of transition. When he is booked for an event, often he is asked "Do you still do the singing, voices and faces we know you for?". Jason is here to tell everyone, "Of course"! He's all about entertainment with a message. Find out more below:
Celebrities, Entertainers, Hollywood types and Athletes who offer their opinions on political matters are highly criticized and often told to keep their mouths shut. I am not on their level of celebrity or knowledge, and don’t claim to comprehend enough about politics to make any real difference on that end, and am simply one small voice in the crowd.
Yet in response to what occurred in the events last weekend in Charlottesville, VA, I can’t just sit back and not say anything. I ask my readership’s forgiveness for even bringing anything political to the forefront, but I feel it has an essential reason in terms of this blog’s main theme, The Promise.
Living in the USA right now is getting pretty scary. My heart hurts on it’s behalf. I love this country on similar footing with my faith, as those claims I’ve made since boy scouts: “On my honor, I will do my duty, to God and my Country…”
My duty and offering is this:
To love one another.
To create uplifting and inspired works.
To give unfailing to those in need.
To stand for equality of race, tolerance of religion and political belief, while refraining from harsh judgments of any person ever.
To be a contributing and uplifting member of society and the world as a whole.
To live the ideals of what I grew up believing were the foundation of our Country – To fight for freedom, to sacrifice for those who live now and come after us, to continue the traditions of a God fearing people who depend upon His hand to give us all we have in this promised land.
I love the United States. God Bless America.
My young children sleep peacefully and unknowingly face in their future a battle far beyond what I’ve ever known. How do I tell them what is happening in this country and how we can make a difference?
What can we do in the face of injustice, civil war, terrorism from within, extremism in our neighborhoods, and an immoral government of failed leadership?
We can only pledge and promise to stand for something! The Promise has never made more sense to me than now.
I’ve stated my Promise here and hope you’ll join me in an arms-around-each other congregation, as a proclamation to ensure hate, violence, and irrational reasoning have no place here, can’t pass through us, and although it may take some of us down, there will be enough courageous leaders and believers of freedom, kindness, and justice running to the forefront to continue to stand for that one precious and holy word we all have the capacity to offer:
