"Jay Johnson is a highly skilled educator, presenter, and coach. As a the Community Relations Director for Growth Works, I have had the great privilege of working with Coeus Creative Group to develop our marketing, communications and talent management plans. As the CEO, Jay sets the example and leads his team to go above and beyond to produce amazing work and generate successful outcomes. They don't treat their customers like clients, but instead, they act as members of their customers' team, living their successes and growing from their opportunities. Their work is of the highest quality because if it isn't good enough for them, it isn't good enough for their partners." "Jay is also the most knowledgeable educator and coach I know when it comes to Behavioral Intelligence. He is a student of this work which allows him to constantly learn and share his insights with his team and clients. I have had the great privilege to receive coaching from Jay and he has helped me recognize and grow in personal opportunities ranging from networking, public speaking, emotional intelligence, motivation and influence. Jay Johnson and his team at Coeus Creative Group set a high bar for success and are the solution your team needs."

Laura Reiners, Director Of Community Relations At Growth Works

"When you have an event that people talk about for days, weeks, or longer after an event (in a good way), then you know the speaker was outstanding! Jay was the speaker for two of these kind of events that we had as a part of our "Grow Your Business" Series of workshops. The first time we had him speak was in October 2014 on the topic of "Unlocking Hidden Messages: The Secret Language of the Body" and then again in February 2020 on the topic of "Sold! A Behavioral Approach to Sales and Marketing." His combination of enthusiasm and audience engagement made the sessions enjoyable to the audience and, most importantly, helped them gain the knowledge and skills they need to grow their business. I look forward to having Jay back to speak for us again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the type of speaker I described!"
