The Importance of Importance
Randall Kenneth Jones’s upbeat spin on personal and professional development falls under the umbrella of “The Importance of Importance.” Jones helps his audience explore the benefits to idea generation, communication, productivity and compatibility when empowered with a feeling of “importance.”
A uniquely entertaining speaker, Jones’ and his unique brand of infotainment cross a broad range of business, civic and educational platforms. His presentations/classes include:
- HAPPY DAYS: Benefits of Positive Communication
- BEWITCHED: Think on Your Feet
- THIS IS YOUR LIFE: Maximize the Authentic YOU
- STAR SEARCH: Looking for the BEST in People
Jones’ longstanding public quest for professional civility has landed him on TODAY, The Hoda Show with Hoda Kotb, MARKETPLACE on Public Radio and CNBC.com. He has also been a regular contributor to Smart Business magazine and the Naples Daily News.
In 2012, Jones embarked on a mission to improve himself. Over the next four years, he interviewed 100+ professionals from a variety of workplace trenches. Subjects included Pat Benatar, Brian Boitano, Erin Brockovich, James Carville, Barbara Corcoran, Kassie DePaiva, Carl Edwards, Janet Evanovich, Kathy Griffin, Vicki Gunvalson, Jack Hanna, Jeffrey Hayzlett, Shirley Jones, Sonny Jurgensen, Sue Monk Kidd, Hoda Kotb, Rob Marciano, Mary Matalin, Tyler Mathisen, General Barry McCaffrey, Suze Orman, Vanessa Williams and many more.
He chronicled his experiences–the good, the bad, the ugly and the funny–in his 2016 book, SHOW ME.
In September 2018, Jones and Susan C. Bennett (the Original Voice of Siri) launched JONES.SHOW, a podcast intended to continue his deep dive into, not just what people do, but WHY they do it. Guests have included Erin Brockovich, Sam Champion, Sara Evans, Dr. Judy Ho, Faith Prince, Patricia Racette, Ginger Zee & HOT BENCH Judges Patricia DiMango and Michael Corriero.
Drawing upon these life-changing experiences and his (now) proven success “at making life the ultimate classroom,” Jones’ fearless presentations and classes are customized to each audience (Corporate America, small business, education, non-profit, government) and/or job focus (management, sales & marketing, customer service, etc.).
Equal parts oration, tutorial and stand-up routine, Jones loves to challenge his audiences to get on their feet and become participants in his “act.”
