Once again, your presentation was exactly on target for our audience and a perfect conclusion for our sessions. The feedback is very, very strong.
Richard P. Garmany, Director, Producer Services, AETNA Retirement Services

Extremely inspirational and interesting. You made a wonderful contribution to our meeting, and set high expectations for future presenters.
Susan Kushner, Professional Convention Management Assn, So. California Chapter

I fully enjoyed your presentation at our recent convention and appreciate the extra preparation it takes to relate to the audience. Calling my room to let me know that you arrived and leaving your room number was a consideration not practiced by many speakers. Since I was not one of the coordinators to bring you to our group, you obviously took the time to find out my name and make the contact.
Steven A. Etkin, Executive Vice President AWCI, Falls Church, VA

Your address was exactly what we wanted to set the tone for our meeting . . . nothing but wonderful comments.
Larry Compton, EVP-Sales, US LIFE Credit Life Insurance

A veteran of many speeches and presentations, I can attest that it is rare for a speaker to fascinate an audience. But you did it! The comments included "absolute delight," "he lights a fire in your belly.
Robert W. Speetzen, President/CEO, GE CAPITAL Railcar Services

You were a big hit at our Conference! Your presentation was exactly on target.
Richard P. Garmany, Director, Field Management, AETNA Aliac Pensions

'Jim is an exceptional speaker. Jim arrived the day before his speaking engagement and sat in on all the sessions taking place prior to his speech. He learned first-hand about our industry and was able to apply his new knowledge into his speech so he could relate and touch our audience on a deeper level. Jim's speech was heart-felt, relevant and truly made you want to be a better human being and make a difference in the way you work and how you live in this world. Jim received a standing ovation! Congratulations and Thank You for making a difference
Michelle Mendez, Torrance, CA

Your experience, style and delivery kept a 'tough room' engaged and entertained. The points you made regarding the development of relationships with people in general and customers in particular drew the praise of all in attendance.
Steve Gronski, National Accountds, ADT Security Systems

Jim, I am aware that you are a professional speaker, and all that. And I fully understand that you extended a great courtesy to our group of incoming Rotary club presidents by agreeing to the arrangements to come to our training seminar. Really, I expected a terrific performance. But I didn’t expect all that you gave us. I should have seen it coming when we chatted briefly…I knew you were more than a traveling performer when I noticed the stack of hand written notes at your elbow. You were delightfully pleasant, but it was clear that you -- preparing a talk I presume you’ve done once or twice before – were preparing even more. Then I heard you speak. For us, you knew our beloved Rotary. You know it in detail. And you understand P.E.T.S. visions and goals. And your talk not only reflected that knowledge – your talk enabled some of our hopes and dreams for our P.E.T.S. So, your presentation wasn’t a mere reflection of our P.E.T.S. goals, it became a major part of the substance of our accomplishments. I think that you are more than a professional!
David V. Cresson, Program Director, Rotary P.E.T.S.

Your preparation on Leadership and Team Building was an inspiration to all those who attended. As elected officials, we need to be reminded that we are in the ‘customer care’ business and that we are here to serve our constituents. We also need to remember that Together Everyone Accomplishes More and should do our best to work together as a team within our organizations.” “I envy your ability to take a crowd from laughing and yelling to silence and tears. You are truly a fantastic speaker with an excellent message. Debbie tells me that ‘you’re a meeting planner’s dream!
Steve Napolitano, President/Seminar Chair Independent Cities Association 43rd Annual Seminar, Southern California

You were dynamite. I'm not over-exaggerating. Your talk was the talk of the market all the way through the week.
Mike McClelland, President and CEO, Hardware Wholesalers, Inc.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire membership of the U.S. Tennis Court & Track Builders Association, I am writing to thank you for the terrific keynote speech you presented in December at our Technical Meeting in La Jolla, California. I came away from that talk feeling that it was the finest I have heard in 20 years of attending meetings, and my thoughts were reinforced many times over the ensuing days by others members who felt the same. It combined entertainment, inspiration and motivation in an engaging manner, truly the elements of a good keynote speech. The nugget I came away with was when you were talking about customer expectations and how so many people can meet those expectations. You said it can indeed be a crowded road. But the highway of the ‘extra mile’ is surprisingly uncrowded and that is where the best are separated from the rest. It is quite apparent that you are familiar with the landscape of that highway.
David Marsden, Chairman, U.S. Tennis Court & Track Builders Association, U.S. Tennis Court & Track Builders Association, Inc. Annual Meeting

We wanted a ‘non-Rotary’" speaker, since we desired that these incoming leaders sense that this job as a Rotary Club President is big, important, not just for Rotary. Your reputation, your background assured us of that. But we got a bonus: You integrated your remarks with such knowledge of Rotary that these Presidents-elect know they are part of a grand movement. Finally, we wanted a speaker who would entertainingly cap a busy day of classroom work. Wow. The 45 minutes seemed like ten. All of us in the room enjoyed the entire presentation and were sorry it ever had to end!
John T. Blount, PDG, District 5130 General Chair, Far West P.E.T.S. Training Seminar, Rotary International
