Jon Montgomery

Speaker, Host of The Amazing Race Canada; Olympic Champion

Bio

Jon Montgomery captured the hearts of Canadians – and the attention of everyone – during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. After years of hard work, training and perseverance, Montgomery won a gold medal in skeleton, securing his place in history as one of the best. His celebratory walk through Whistler showcased his passion, spirit, and sense of humour–traits that he brings to every platform, whether in front of a live audience or acting as the host of The Amazing Race Canada.

A casual trip to Canada Olympic Park left an indelible mark on Montgomery when he witnessed a skeleton race and immediately fell in love with the sport. In his rookie season, he kicked off his World Cup campaign with a bronze medal, going on to finish in the top ten three more times. He finished sixth overall. His sophomore season saw him earn five podium finishes, including his first World Cup victory and a silver medal at the World Championships. Montgomery placed second overall and from there went on to win his Olympic gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Today, Montgomery is the host of the hit TV show, The Amazing Race Canada, which has earned him two Canadian Screen Awards. He also co-hosted the Junos in 2016 with Jann Arden.

Montgomery embraces any opportunity to engage with live and virtual audiences, whether as a keynote or host. He shares his journey from the flatlands of the prairies to the top of the Olympic podium, reminding audiences why the goals we set for ourselves are only as achievable as we believe they are.

Dreaming BIG... Living Bigger +

While Jon Montgomery always wanted to be a Canadian National Team athlete, he didn’t know which sport it would be in! Keeping his eyes wide open, living outside his comfort zone, trying new things, and accepting the challenges that presented themselves enabled him to find his passion and his opportunity to realize his dreams. Montgomery’s story will inspire others to go after what they’re looking for, no matter how daunting a task it may seem. --

Jon’s Olympic Journey +

The story of a small-boy from a small-town who grew up playing hockey and idolizing his home-town hero - the smallest guy to ever play in the NHL.  The experiences shaped and inspired Montgomery’s desire to become an Olympic Champion also.

Jon shares insights and experiences from the Flat-lands of Manitoba to the top-step of the Olympic Podium - and “beerond” - inspiring audiences to leverage simple tools to work together, live life outside their comfort zones, develop grit, and believe in themselves... and hopefully have a little fun. --

Self-efficacy +

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t... you’re 100% correct!  Learning this nugget-of-wisdom the hard-way, very early in his development as a skeleton athlete, illuminated a fundamental truth for Montgomery - the greatest differentiator between realizing a goal and falling short is rooted in the individuals personal belief that they will achieve that which they seek.

Jon will relive the dramatic experience that revealed the toughest hurdle he would have to overcome to realize his dream... his ability to believe in himself! --

Teamwork +

Skeleton racing is an individual sport - but you are never alone!  Whether you find yourself piloting a skeleton sled at 140kph down a frozen track or working on a project late at night at work, you have resources!

When we lean into the resources, human or otherwise, that are around us, we are more!  Together our growth and development can be amplified and expedited - and it is through this collaborative approach that we can benefit from the invaluable experience of others. Preparation is the key to seizing your moment when the time comes; “pre-pair”, “pre-pair”, “pre-pair”... then “pre-form”! --

Innovation & Realism +

Being realistic about the things in life we can’t change can be illuminating -  but there are always ways in which we can optimize ourselves and our situations through creative thinking and innovation. Unless you’re moving forward you’re getting left behind!

After winning gold in 2010 Jon decided to build his own skeleton sled to defend Our gold medal in 2014.  While the end result was not what he was striving for at the outset, the lessons learned would prove to be invaluable!

Our attitude is the only thing we have control over in life - when we control our attitude, we can control how we react to things and thus, how they make us feel. --

Jon Montgomery gave a first class professional presentation to an audience of over 200 independent retailers, hardware vendors and TruServ Canada staff at the TruServ Canada Spring Market. His presentation was very well received and cited by audience members as the best pre-market function ever. Jon is friendly, unpretentious and a captivating speaker with a great Canadian story. He connects with his audience and is a real crowd pleaser. I highly recommend Jon as a motivational speaker in any context.
