Jim is a professional speaker, trainer and presentation specialist with thousands of hours stand up training, speaking, and public seminar presentation experience. He provides coaching services that help with speech/presentation delivery, nervousness and stage fright, “on camera” and media interviews, managing emotions and personal energy, employment interviews, accent reduction and vocal clarity, and voice coaching for clear authentic pace and pleasant melody. He offers coaching sessions because he likes doing it and enjoys the satisfaction of helping people succeed with one-on-one sessions.

Jim has served as a human resource director and training director, and has been a consistent top rated presenter for human resource audiences for fifteen years. As part of his work, he teaches business professionals the “in-front-of-the-room-skills” and “soft one-on-one communication skills” that convey interest, engagement, confidence and presence. He is adept at helping people organize presentations and talks so that they are targeted, on message, have positive impact, and are appropriately concise. He is adept at providing plain language insight that helps people who aren't accomplished speakers make rapid improvement. What makes him unique is that he has dozens of methods in his pocket that can help someone quickly move past fear and make any butterflies fly in formation. He has also studied improv, acting for non-actors, and voice.

What you will get from Jim is someone who will collaboratively work with you so that you accomplish your personal goals. You will get a coach who gives you honest feedback and can help you credibly become more comfortable conveying your message and “being you” in front of an audience, peers, or executives. What you won’t get is a lot of ego, or a cookie cutter approach that tries to turn you into a "paint by numbers" speaker.

Knowledgeable and Professional Tutor

Jim provided me with a huge help on my interview preparation. Being an extremely experienced HR consultant and public speaker, he has excellent views about body languages, voices control, presentations skills, etc. In addition, before starting the tutoring sessions, Jim took time to understand my timelines, plans, and expectations in order to be more effective.

Communication Training

Jim has a wide range of skills and background that he uses to help the student learn. He has made a daunting task doable. If you are even considering, just meet with him once and find out for yourself!

Excellent first lesson

Jim quickly got down to business and laid out a plan to improve my diction. I look forward to future lessons.

Putting the puzzle together

Jim has already explained a lot of element of good public speaking, that we had practiced, but in this lesson all came together, Jim showed me why the bad speaking performance happens with me and how I can mitigate, handle it and later prevent it. Jim has a lot of experience in teaching public speaking but every student is different he tries various things as long as it is relevant to the student. Thank you Jim, you really helped me to understand this.
