Jim’s creativity, humor, and improvisational approach will bring a fresh new perspective to your next event or seminar.
From songwriting to juggling to crossing (imaginary) pools of lava, Jim turns groups into teams by building confidence and encouraging creativity in everyday situations. His focus on active participation gets folks moving, talking, and laughing as they discover new talents and use them to create innovative solutions and ideas.
Creative Problem Solving
What have we got to work with today? What can we do with it? These questions are at the core of Jim’s approach. Acknowledging that each day is different and learning to work with what is available at any given moment is crucial to finding solutions that work. Using goal-oriented thinking, Jim urges students to focus on what they have instead of what they don’t, and to find ways to turn disadvantages to their advantage.
Motivation & Inspiration
“The first secret of success is to never believe anyone when they tell you something is impossible.”
Motivational speakers are often like cheerleaders, getting everyone excited about the big game. But what happens after the game? It’s not enough to get people excited, they need the tools that will enable them to succeed on their own. Using a practical and down-to-earth approach, Jim helps turn even the biggest project into a series of realistic and achievable goals in language that doesn’t sound like an infomercial. His folksy style bridges the gap between speaker and audience, leaving listeners feeling empowered as well as inspired.
Why not top off your event with a concert? Jim seamlessly blends topics covered in workshops and seminars into his performances, helping to reinforce lessons learned by illustrating success, and inviting participants to join him on stage to show off their newly-discovered skills. Seminar & performance package rates are available, be sure to ask about them when you book your event.
