One Man. One Bike. One Tent. Without a Doubt, One Heck of an Adventure! 

This LIVE session is a unique and uplifting keynote that inspires audiences to strive for more than they ever thought possible - both professionally and personally and will contain a 45-minute live presentation through Zoom followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.

As an ordinary everyday person, he took a risk to do something extraordinary.  After 33 years of sales and executive level leadership, at the age of 57, as an untrained and inexperienced cyclist, he pedaled solo and unsupported out of Anchorage Alaska and into the complete unknown - all the way to Mexico, encountering “everything weird and wondrous North America had to offer”.

Jerry Holl isn’t most people, so he did exactly that. In his inspiring true story of resilience, strength, and overcoming fear, Holl reveals how his journey forever altered his life and why he embarked on it in the first place.

"I didn’t have the upfront know-how - all I knew is that willpower and tenacity would have to carry me.  This journey led to an incredibly productive new future that I never contemplated.  Your audience will be inspired to GO FOR IT - to take mindful risks and initiative leading them to incredible performance.  This keynote is inspiring, entertaining and 100% authentic!  It’s all told in a story format with lessons learned. Not too many folks have quit their corporate careers at age fifty-seven to embark on an epic adventure, especially when their most trusted companion is a bike they don’t know how to fix."

Jerry is an award-winning author, a dynamic speaker and a relentless optimist. His messages are entertaining, informative, inspirational and 100% authentic. He’s also an independent business consultant, and weekend warrior. He holds an engineering degree, an MBA, and has over three decades of sales and leadership experience. Jerry resides in Minnesota with his wife and has three grown children. 

Learning Objectives

  • Inspire the audience to ‘stretch’ beyond what they think they can do - unleash their true capabilities
  • Inspire a culture of service - although I pedaled alone, the service of others got me there
