“Thank you my friend. Tonight was another home run. The team (board and leaders) was quite impressed. You nailed it. Looking forward to you at one of my larger gatherings.”
Chief Executive Officer and President, Apogee Enterprises


“Two years ago I reached out to Jim and requested he give a motivational speech at my National Sales Meeting. Since then I have asked Jim to attend key customer conferences and meetings. Beyond being an American icon, hero, world class athlete, motivational speaker and author, Jim is a consumate professional. He put the time and effort into researching my company, my people, my business plan and our culture so that whether he was presenting to my team or meeting with my key customers he was completely connected on all points. Jim finds a way to engage everyone he meets and talks to on a personal level. I recommend Jim to any organization, any level that wants to better understand how they can become champions no matter what the business.”

“If you are looking for a bolt of lightning to energize and focus your sales teams, hire Jim Craig. Jim spent half a day with the Bausch & Lomb Vision Care sales force at the launch meeting for our new contact lens PureVision 2 HD. His General Session talk was riveting but more importantly his background in business as well as in hockey enabled him to combine sports and work analogies seamlessly. The effect is that every member of the Team from Sales Rep to Vice President got the messages of owning your job, building a taste for winning, and the value of personally committing to a team objective. Jim then spent time with the regional sales leadership signing autographs and memorabilia while giving them some powerful tips on coaching and getting the best out their organizations. With every group and discussion his authentic excitement was evident and he created not one, but dozens of individual experiences that our sales folks will never forget . The feedback we have gotten in the two weeks since the meeting has been tremendous and the launch is off to one of our fastest starts ever. Jim’s high energy dead on message clearly helped.”
President , Bausch & Lomb Vision Care N. America


“Your story is a great one but your message was even better. We have received all positive feedback from the team today on your speech. It really resonated with the group which is exactly what we wanted. I loved your book! We will be distributing your Gold Medal Strategies book to my team to help reinforce and keep the sustainability of your message.”

“Jim has been a friend of The Coca-Cola Company, and me personally, for over 20 years.  We have utilized him in a variety of ways including television commercials and motivational speaking.  His “can do” attitude and entertaining style makes him an excellent addition to any professional engagement.  He will always be a part of US history and a member of The Coca-Cola Family.”
