Having a professional sports career has given me many opportunities. One of these is getting to speak to people and tell my story.
As many of you know, my journey into professional soccer was some what unconventional, there were difficult times and many obstacles but i wouldn’t change it for the world. What my journey did was teach me life lessons that maybe i wouldn’t have, if an easier route had presented itself. What’s great for me now that i am retired from soccer, is having the opportunity to speak to people about my path. The lessons i have learned are not isolated to sports, they have helped me to focus and deal with many situations in life, and overcome them. I hope that by hearing my story and my philosophy on life, you, your team or your colleagues can take away something to help you the next time the odds are stacked against you.
I recently spoke at TEDx Vancouver where i had the opportunity to do a condensed version of my story and focus on some key points.

North America is a lot of land and i understand that many people don’t have the funds available to fly me from coast to coast to come and speak to their teams, whether that’s in business or youth sports. The best solution i could think of was to hold talks & Q&A sessions via Skype, that way i can reach as many people as possible.
A popular format has been for people to hold a screening of my Rise & Shine film and then Skype me to have a 20 minute Q&A afterwards. If this is something you would like to explore further, please contact David below.
Jay DeMerit has one of the sunniest dispositions I have ever encountered. You combine this positive outlook with his incredible personal journey, his charisma and ability to tell a great story and what results is brilliance. You will laugh mightily and then walk away with an unwavering realization that your destiny is one shining moment away from full reality. Capture that moment!
