I’m a slightly quirky, passionate, engaging, motivating speaker on topics from photography, creativity, & art, through to podcasting, business, money, and anything in between.
“Jason has the ability to educate, entertain and inspire, which means he ticks all the boxes required to keep an audience involved. He has the ability to move seamlessly between talking candidly about topics to technical details and then back again, ensuring that the audience doesn’t lose contact with his message, which is always underpinned by his quirky creative thought process.
I would highly recommend Jason as a keynote speaker in the visual communication industry.”

I’ve spoken (honestly and frankly) in front of rooms of 12 people, and (embarrassed myself in front of) auditoriums of 200+.
I’ve spoken to secondary school children (they love my Taylor Swift references), and my peers with 20+ years more experience than me (whom I still look up to for experience).
“Jason Naylor was invited to speak at our annual arts festival in 2018 (Spark International Festival of Music, Media, Arts & Design). He exceeded expectations as not delivered an extremely polished and highly engaging talk, but threw himself into the festival week running two workshops for students and doing a spontaneous school visit and podcast interview. Jason is a natural communicator and storyteller who is able to articulate his ideas and vision in a very inspiring and down to earth way.”

“Jason captivated students during the entire 30-minute keynote talk as he shared experiences and imagery from his photography business. Students were ‘buzzing’ afterward and expressed their delight, not only in his great sense of humor, but also in his ability to keep his talk relevant and interesting. Many schools reported students referring back to Jason’s talk and workshop for months afterward! This is a great testament to his natural ability to share his knowledge in a meaningful way.”
