"I will tell you that I have received so many positive comments from employees last night, and throughout the day today.  Jim was warm and energetic and certainly kept our employees from becoming lethargic after eating lunch!  Jim’s use of personal experiences was a powerful way to bring his ideas home and kept everyone laughing while delivering the message that we do have control of how the uncontrollable effect our lives.  It tied in very well with our message of First Citizens Community Bank being a very good place to work and that we, as employees, should not forgot all of the benefits that we have. Jim’s speech was “spot on”! We could not be more pleased and I would highly recommend Jim to any community bank that wants a speaker that can relate to the audience and bring the message through clearly with the use of his personal experiences. Thank you so much!!

"The event was EXACTLY what we were looking for and we are so appreciative of our new found relationship with you and the learning that is resulting.  

We are very enthusiastic about putting your lessons to use in some very prominent ways at PEC. Also - following your moving presentation we are taking a look at how to expand this venue to all employees. Our team needs the career nourishment and common vision that emerges from the discussion you led. We are certain to be continuing our work together. "

"I’ve been getting nothing but rave reviews of your presentation to our employees. After your departure, participants were asked to evaluate your presentation on a five point scale...your weighted average score of 4.87 was superb.

Six employees made particular note that this event was the best training exercise we’ve ever hosted. Two employees made a point to tell me afterward, privately, that this was a message that hit home with them, and this was a message they very much needed to hear at this particular time in their lives. One said ‘He was speaking directly to my personal situation.’

Once again, your presentation clearly resonated with our staff in a very positive way. We now look forward to the follow-up exercises to keep the momentum going."

"I had heard of you and your powerful message from colleagues in other state associations and their recomendations were right on target. Your kick-off message for our conference was exactly what we had hoped for. The standing ovation you received made it clear that conference attendees felt the same way."
