First Citizens Community Bank

"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!!"

"Thank YOU, Jim!   As evidenced by your warm reception and the individuals who flocked to you after your remarks, your presentation was a hit.  Feedback?  You were right on target in both content, energy and delivery.  We already are receiving tremendous feedback in our evaluations, as well! 
You were a key ingredient to our event’s success, offering valuable insights for our members … and helping our association look good in the process.  For that, our volunteer leaders and staff are very grateful!  Thank you so much."

"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."
