“I thought your presentation to our association was worth the conference price of admission alone! You hit on so many topics that our generally family-based companies needed to hear. It was interesting to hear from those in attendance how much several individuals who were not in attendance would have learned from you presentation. Maybe some of the advice was passed long.  But you made me a better businessman and my business partner enjoyed hearing my recap of your talk.”

“Jim,
I would like to thank you for presenting “How to Grow your Business” to our District Sales Managers.  Your personal experiences and insight will help our managers improve their individual businesses.  You were able to take some very dry topics, such as the planning process, and make it interesting with your humor and personal anecdotes.  The morning was inspiring, fun and educational.  I look forward to working with you in the future to help us build the most successful Colonial Organization in the Country.”
 
Thanks,
