“Thank you agin for taking the time to speak with our sales leadership team – the team is still talking about your presentation. Have to say that in all my years seeing motivational speakers, it was the best – the preparation that went into it really enabled you to tie your stories to our message – made it that much more powerful!”

“It began with the crowd giving Jim a standing ovation as he was introduced and took the stage – from there, it only got better. We had the great fortune to work with Jim during our annual sales and marketing kick-off event, and it was unanimous from the 300+ attendees that he was the best motivational speaker they had heard. In addition to Jim’s celebrity as a gold medal Olympian, he is an insightful business leader and strategist. In the lead up to the event, Jim and his team took the time to get to know us from the leadership team right down to our most critical business challenges. This proved valuable in Jim’s unique and engaging delivery of his address to our team. We all felt as if he knew us for 10 years; and it provided such authenticity in Jim’s delivery of his very personal story of success, which he brilliantly used to motivate and challenge our team, that we too could overcome our business challenges and win our gold. Jim’s message of commitment, winning, team work, accountability, and leadership were delivered with such passion and energy that the team is still talking about it almost two months after the event. Our engagement with Jim was memorable on so many levels – personal and professional – and we will be engaging Jim in the future for a mid-year booster shot. Truly inspirational.”
SVP, Chief Marketing Officer, XO Communications
“A quick note to thank you again. Your presentation was spot on and truly inspiring. You did a wonderful job of telling your story and relating it to XO and our meeting theme, “Believe it. Achieve it. Succeed together.” I would also like to thank you for taking the time to shake hands with our folks, signing autographs, and taking a few pictures as you left the meeting. It really meant something to those that had the opportunity to meet you in person, including me.”

Dollar for dollar spent, you get both a star studded personality AND a very successful businessman who knows what he’s talking about. He’s a person professionals can relate to in the real world.”
