President, The Schallert Group, Inc.
Jon Schallert is the only consultant and professional speaker who teaches businesses and communities how to turn themselves into Consumer Destinations. Schallert speaks to thousands annually on his proprietary 14-step “Destination Business” process, which he developed over the course of thirty-one (31) years by studying and interviewing over 10,000 independent business owners in over 500 cities and towns.
Jon’s Destination Business strategy has been used around the world by businesses large and small to help them capture more market share, even when larger, better-capitalized competitors seemingly have the advantage. His process examines how a business markets itself and elevates the unique qualities that a targeted customer finds most important. When independent business owners apply Schallert’s strategy to their businesses, they naturally attract more local consumers along with customers from outside their traditional marketplace. Businesses also begin to attract more free publicity from the media, which in turn attracts
Schallert’s consulting firm, The Schallert Group, Inc., has been in business for over twenty (20) years. Prior to starting the company, Schallert worked for ten years with greeting card giant Hallmark Cards, where his unique marketing strategies were publicized throughout the company as “the Schallert Method”. Hallmark used his expertise on a nationwide multi-million dollar new product rollout, and tapped Schallert’s experience for their national reinvention of their card shop channel into “Destination” stores. After leaving Hallmark, Schallert began speaking around the country in cities, towns, downtowns, and at association conventions. After years of annually conducting over 1,000 on-site consultations with
business owners, and studying the most successful business owners in North America, Schallert developed and trademarked his proprietary 14-step Destination Business process that he exclusively teaches today.
When Jon is not speaking around the country, he conducts his 21⁄2 day Destination Business BootCamp® in Longmont, Colorado, and oversees his company’s online training network, Destination University®.
Some of Schallert’s larger corporate consulting clients include Kellogg’s, KitchenAid, Bank of America, Denver International Airport, Jiffy Lube, Ace Hardware, Anheuser Busch, and Hunter Douglas, to name a few. His insights are frequently seen in national publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and Entrepreneur Magazine. He is the only consultant in the world to receive the “Top Motivator” Marketing Award from Potentials Magazine. He is a member of the National Speakers Association, the International Economic Development Council, and the National Main Street Network.
