Host of Amazing Race Canada, Canadian Olympic Gold Medal Athlete

Jon Montgomery’s life has been a whirlwind since his Olympic win in skeleton racing at the Vancouver Whistler Olympics in 2010.  His big-time podium moment and his now-famous victory “beer-walk” through Whistler Village have paved the way for Montgomery to continue to find himself on Canadian TV.

Today, as the host of The Amazing Race Canada, Jon travels across the country, and all over the world, filming and sharing insights with audiences of all stripes on what makes Canada great and why the goals we set for  ourselves are only as achievable as we believe they are.

Jon embraces any opportunity to engage with live and virtual audiences, auctioneering something sentimental for your charity or inspiring  your attendees with a parade-of-stories, chronicling a young mans journey from the flatlands of the prairies to the top of the Olympic podium – reminding us all that it’s alright to be proudly Canadian and celebrate the good times along the way!

Speaking topics

Dreaming Big: Living Bigger

While Jon 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 will inspire 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 him to become an Olympic Champion.

Self Efficacy

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


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 explains the importance of teamwork in our families, workplaces, or communities.

Speaker testimonials

Jon was so gracious in taking pictures with everyone, which took awhile, but he was happy to do it. The key messages were very well received and I had many staff come to me and email me the next day that they thoroughly enjoyed his presentation. He is thoughtful, engaging and a great sense of humour.
