Lifestyle Design Workshops
Jakob conducts single event and serial lifestyle design workshops for the general student body and athletic departments at numerous Universities. His events involve segments on Perspective, Leadership, Communication, Culture Building, Productivity/organization, and Day Design. Throughout these engagements, Jakob has informally (and rather jokingly) become recognized as “The Architect of Areté”.
Jakob was sidelined his first two seasons as a collegiate player, having 5 surgeries on his foot and knee. Despite a multitude of ruthless adversities, Jakob became a 4-year team captain, 4-year starter, and winningest player in Mercer Basketball history. With his champion’s pedigree and a humbling story of grit, perseverance, and true benevolent leadership to speak of, Jakob has an inspiring, thought provoking message, and his tale will touch everyone in the room.
