About Jim

Jim is a professional speaker, trainer and presentation specialist with thousands of hours stand up training, speaking, and public seminar presentation experience. He 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 soft one-on-one communication skills that convey interest, engagement, and presence. He has also studied improv, acting for non-actors, and voice. He offers coaching sessions because he likes doing it and enjoys the satisfaction of helping people succeed with one-on-one sessions.

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. 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. What you won’t get is a lot of ego, or a cookie cutter approach that tells you “how it’s done” or tries to turn you into a "paint by numbers" speaker.
