Jon Vroman

Sunday Night Keynote Speaker

Jon is an award-winning speaker, contributing Author to Cutting Edge Sales, Author of Living College Life In The Front Row and charitable entrepreneur.

His trademark keynote message, Living Life In The Front RowTM, helps students, sales professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders, and managers step away from what's comfortable and ordinary, and start pursuing what's challenging, important and meaningful.

Jon believes that each one of us chooses whether to be a spectator of life in the "back row" or actively engaged "in the front row."

In 2005, Jon founded Front Row Foundation, which was recently featured on NBC's Today Show. The charity helps individuals and families who are braving critical health challenges Live Life In The Front RowTM, by providing recipients a front row experience at their favorite concert, sporting event, theatrical performance or other form of live entertainment. To date, Front Row has raised over $1,000,000 and created more than 70 life-changing experiences.

Jon resides in New Jersey with his family.
