Jonathan Hood

In the high stakes game of football it takes more than just physical strength and endurance to succeed. It takes leadership, desire and sheer determination to reach the pinnacle of success. The blue print for the game of life is no different. Success comes to those who want it. Jonathan Hood can empower you to fulfill your dreams. 

Jonathan Hood, a former linebacker for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League (CFL), has made a name for himself on and off the football field. At the age of 31, Jonathan has established himself as a dynamic motivational speaker, a passionate youth mentor and university professor, an intense leadership consultant, and a successful entrepreneur. 

In 2012, he launched The Ahead of the Game Youth Mentoring Program, a leadership program for “at-risk” youth. Over the past 5 years the program has positively re-engaged hundreds of students with their schools, families and communities. 

Jonathan is currently pursuing a PhD in Leadership and Business Management at Western University. His focus is on leadership and the role of engagement in leadership development at youth, young adult and corporate levels. He is working on two books and published a weekly blog. 

Jonathan also teaches leadership and coaching courses, mentors university students, and works with business owners and executives to shift to a higher level of influential leadership by helping them actualize, broaden and accelerate their corporate and personal vision. 

"I want to engage my audience in a giant conversation leaving them feeling empowered, supported, resourceful and equipped to unlock the DNA of a champion that is in inside of them."
