NSA KEYNOTE SPEAKER, MARKETING CONSULTANT, BUSINESS COACH
Jon Schallert is an internationally-recognized speaker and business expert specializing in teaching businesses and communities how to turn themselves into Consumer Destinations. Schallert speaks to thousands annually on his proprietary 14-step "Destination Business" process, which he developed over the course of twenty-five (25) years of working with independent business owners.
Jon’s Destination Business strategy has been used extensively by cities, towns, downtowns, shopping centers, retail chains, franchises, and independent entrepreneurs and owners. This strategy has the advantage of pulling a greater number of consumers, from a greater geographic distance, to a business, causing increases in sales and profits, while improving the marketplace where the business resides.
Jon Schallert was born in Wisconsin, raised in Colorado, and graduated from the University of Colorado. For ten years, Schallert worked for greeting card giant Hallmark Cards, where his unique marketing strategies were publicized throughout the company as “the Schallert Method”. Hallmark used his expertise on a nationwide multi-million dollar new product rollout, and tapped Schallert’s experience for their national reinvention of their card shop channel into "destination" stores.
After 10 years with Hallmark, Schallert left to start his consulting firm, The Schallert Group, Inc. He began speaking to small business owners in cities, towns, downtowns, and associations around the country. After years of annually conducting over 1,000 on-site consultations with owners, and studying the most successful business owners in North America, Schallert developed his proprietary 14-step Destination Business process that he teaches today.
Business owners can learn Schallert's process to reinvent themselves into Destinations in a number of ways. They can hear Jon when he speaks at a conference, or they can come to his Destination Business B
