March Breakfast Meeting with Jeff Blackwood


"Jeff Blackwood: The Power of Positive Thinking"


Jeff's journey is a testament to the power of perseverance and positive thinking. Born in Brookfield B.B., he attended his first year of education in a one-room school, later completing his schooling at Macpherson Academy in St. John's in 1959. After working for a few years in government, he transitioned into the finance and credit industry, earning a C.C.C.E designation. In the early '70s, Jeff found himself offered a position with NTV as assistant to the president, responsible for special projects. By 1979, he had ascended to the role of sales manager, where he developed a highly successful sales manual and trained the sales staff in the new system. In the late '80s, Jeff sought a new challenge. He resigned from NTV and founded his own company, Jeff Blackwood and Associates, a publishing and marketing business. For nearly two decades, he led a team of ten until retiring at 65. But that's not all. Jeff is also a black belt in Taekwondo, and recently, he added "published author" to his list of accomplishments. Throughout his varied career, Jeff has remained a steadfast believer in the power of positive thinking. He knows firsthand that maintaining a positive attitude can help us navigate life's challenges, and he's here to share some inspiring stories that underscore this point.
