Ted Talk
Jia Jiang: World Domination Summit Presentation
Lets Get Rejected

4 Programs By This Presenter

The fear of rejection can hold you back. Our natural tendency is to avoid it at all costs which can be detrimental to our businesses, careers, and lives. In 2012, to overcome his own fear of rejection, entrepreneur Jia Jiang started an experiment to be rejected every day for 100 days. The result became the basis of his #3 viewed TED talk of 2017 and bestselling book: Rejection Proof. In this engaging presentation, Jia shares stories from his rejection experiment to teach you the importance of becoming rejection-proof, the basic principles of turning a NO into YES, as well as how to get more YESes.

Based on race, gender, education, and cultural background, society has put us into different boxes and tagged us with stereotypes and expectations. Equally damaging, however, are the ways we also conform to these boxes in unconscious ways. As an Asian American who has broken multiple boxes, Jia takes on the DE&I topic with a unique two-way approach for both organizations and individuals.

For organization leaders, Jia helps them to understand and actively install a fearless box-breaking culture. And for employees, Jia challenges them to seek opportunities to influence beyond their box.

Through a series of 27 digestible self-paced videos on rejection, your team members will learn psychology, framework, real-world examples, and exact words to use in receiving, giving, minimizing, and handling rejections. The course also includes 30+ optional hand-on challenges to get rejected and build your mental muscles, a MAGIC tracker sheet to track your actions, participation in an accountability group and a 30-minute group call with Jia.

Based on his #1 bestselling book – Rejection Proof, this workshop takes a deep dive into rejection-proof principles to expose attendees to techniques in overcoming fears. The audience will learn to turn rejection to advantage, how to give rejections, and to get more acceptances. They will also go through “Rejection in the Wild” – an unforgettable, real-life rejection-seeking exercise. This workshop is 1-4 hours long.

“I was honored to host Jia at Waggener Edstrom’s annual Tech Summit this year. His keynote address – detailing his life experiences as a little boy in China, a teenage foreign exchange student in Louisiana, and his adventures as an Austin entrepreneur – was impactful and moving. Thank you, Jia, for sharing your story and taking our event to the next level by encouraging such thoughtful and meaningful discussion”

“On January 30, 2014 Southwest Michigan First hosted Catalyst University, an annual 900-attendee leadership conference in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Jia Jiang wowed our audience with his message of overcoming rejection and being bold enough to just ask! As the event director for Catalyst University, I appreciated his punctuality during rehearsals and responsiveness to communication prior to the event. He delivered on his promise and inspired our leaders to achieve new heights. Our entire staff loved meeting Jia and working with him on this speaking engagement. We highly recommend him as a speaker”
