Jens began his speaking career at the early age of 18 when he was a professional hockey player in Europe, giving motivational speeches to young and aspiring athletes. His speaking career grew organically from there as he started giving speeches to hockey parents, and coaches. After a career-ending injury in his 21st season, Jens decided to transition into a more corporate setting, and so he became a keynote speaker and business coach, speaking in front of, and working with individuals of all personal and professional backgrounds including executives and senior level leaders. Keeping in touch with his passion for hockey, Jens continues to work with countless professional athletes who are transitioning from their professional sporting careers to life after sports, which includes both current and former NHL athletes.
Over the years, Jens has partnered with organizations such as Sears, Shoot for a Cure, and StopConcussions.com to speak about leadership, leadership development, and business development. In addition to speaking and coaching, Jens also donates much of his time to not-for-profit organizations that are close to his heart like Ronald McDonald House and the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
