Client Responses

Jim, I can honestly say in my 40 years with Modern Woodmen, you rank as one of the most powerful speakers we have ever had. I have received dozens of e-mails and phone calls praising your session.

I would highly recommend you to anyone who is trying to motivate their associates to the next level. Thank you again for all of your hard work. It was truly appreciated.

What a great job you did yesterday! Your presentation was absolutely wonderful and your message continued to resonate throughout the day. Many speakers went on to talk about their own fears, risk taking and rewards.

Director of Communications and Marketing

What a pleasure it was to work with you. I was impressed from our first telephone conversation but I never imagined the professional level you would rise to at our conference. We threw you the biggest curve ball I can imagine (at the last minute) and you handled it without missing a beat. I don't know of anyone else who wouldn't have been rattled after being told they would follow an award that recognized an extraordinary response to the events of September 11. Not only was an award given, but an incredibly emotional video was shown that set a very different tone than the one I had envisioned you would create. You went on to present everything I expected and more. Within moments you had taken the audience from one mindset to another. Incredible is the only word I can think of to describe it.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the outstanding presentation and services you provided to our retreat. You went above and beyond the call of duty with your services. It was really nice to have you present for our morning activities. We had numerous comments from our guests about how they really liked the opportunity to speak with you. I also personally appreciated all of your help with the audiovisual setup. You really went above and beyond when you stepped in and helped out with our morning icebreaker, which wasn't even on your agenda for the day. Everything you did was excellent.

TMTA's 1st Annual Leadership Alumni Meeting was an enormous success and you played a key role in helping make that happen. I want to thank you for your willingness to fit our particular issues into your presentation. The message in your keynote presentation, "Becoming A Better Risk Taker", was right on target with the program's direction.

The combination of what you had to say and how you said it made it a memorable event. And your slide presentation was a perfect compliment to your story telling ability, which kept the audience captivated while reinforcing the program's message.
