Jon Landau        

Academy Award-Winning Producer of Titanic & Avatar

Academy Award- and two-time Golden Globe-winning producer Jon Landau has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to oversee and deliver major motion pictures. He currently holds the distinction of having produced the two highest grossing movies of all-time, Avatar and Titanic. The combination of Landau's thorough understanding of the most complex state-of-the-art visual effects technologies, his experience working hand-in-hand with the highest caliber of creative talent, and his ability to motivate people have all enabled him to play a significant role in numerous major motion pictures.

In addition to Avatar and Titanic, Landau produced Steven Soderbergh's Solaris; he also co-produced, under his and James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment banner, Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy and the family comedy hit Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Throughout the early '90s, Landau was Executive Vice President of Feature Film Production at Twentieth Century Fox where he supervised production on all major motion pictures, including Die Hard 2, Mrs. Doubtfire, True Lies, Power Rangers, Aliens 3, Last of the Mohicans, and many more.

Landau has been a speaker both domestically and internationally at educational institutions and companies and organizations such as Microsoft, Adobe, Chief Marketing Officers' Association, Young Presidents Organization, Autodesk, Symantec, Bank of America, Cisco, University of Southern California, Loyola University, and Mofilm. In his engaging presentations, he not only shares insight into the film industry (and his experiences working with director James Cameron), but also discusses the broader perspective of business management, innovative marketing, and motivational philosophies, encouraging audiences to be leaders – not just in their careers, but in their lives as well.
