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. Shortly thereafter, he began competing competitively and enjoying quick success.

Montgomery’s start to his rookie season on the World Cup could not have been drawn more perfectly, and he kicked off his World Cup campaign with a bronze-medal finish on his home track in Calgary. He went on to finish in the top ten three more times during the season, finishing sixth overall in the World Cup standings. His sophomore season was equally remarkable where he enjoyed a breakout season by achieving five podium finishes, including his first World Cup victory and a silver medal at the World Championships. He placed second overall on the World Cup, and from there he went on to win his first Olympic gold medal at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.

Since 2013, Montgomery has acted as the host of the hit television program, The Amazing Race Canada, which sees teams of contestants competing with one other as they race to travel the country. --

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. Jon’s story inspires others to go after what they’re looking for, no matter how daunting a task it may at first seem.

Innovation and Realism

While we must be realistic about the things in life we can’t change, 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!

Jon's Olympic Journey

The story of how a small town boy from Manitoba, who grew up playing hockey and idolizing his home town hero, Theo Fleury (the smallest guy to ever play in the NHL) inspired Jon Montgomery to become an Olympic Champion.

Self-Efficacy

Jon Montgomery explains the secrets that helped him achieve the confidence to follow and achieve his dreams, and how you can, too.

Teamwork

In an individual sport like skeleton, one’s success as an athlete is directly tied to their ability to work collaboratively with their team. Jon Montgomery explains the importance of teamwork in our families, workplaces, or communities.

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.
