 What they're saying:


"Jims presentation couldn't have been more appropriate and his effect on the audience was truly magical.  Many people have told me that they felt as though he was speaking directly to them, and his message was exactly what they needed to hear: the importance of teamwork, focus, and giving 110%. I've been told by more than one person this week that he is the best speaker we've had at a TD Banknorth event yet!"  Maureen Vedder, Vice President, TD Banknorth

"You received rave reviews from both the attendees and the NASSP staff.  Your presentation was obviously right on target for the middle level and high school principals in attendance, as evidenced by the 'I've been there' nods of agreement to the roaring laughter that filled the rooms at times." Lenor Hersey, Deputy Executive Director, National Association of Secondary School Principals


"Finding a speaker that can reach people who fill a variety of roles at all different levels is a somewhat daunting task, and typically, our speakers donít please everyone.  However, you were able to engage, entertain, and encourage our audience, which is quite an accomplishment!   I had quite a few staff actually come to me with rave reviews, telling me this was the best speaker weíve had in a long time."  Laura L. Peterson, Director of Human Resources, You, Inc.


"Thank you so much for the wonderful closing plenary.  I havenít laughed that much in a long time.  I felt so excited and hopeful that I will be able to utilize your messages in my private life as well as at work.  Thank you again."  Karen Ostermann,  Suffolk County Child Support


"As must be quite apparent by now, we absolutely love having you as a closer for our event.   Watching the participants become reinvigorated throughout the presentation remains one of my favorite parts of the conference."   Eleanor Wendell, Program Officer,  Institute of International Education


"We could not have been more pleased with the outcome. You clearly succeeded in lifting their spirits and gave them the energy to move forward and face the challenges ahead.  This was more than obvious when you had everyone on their feet as they rewarded you with a resounding standing ovation."  LexisNexis


"Outstanding...Your presentation was exactly the motivational, poignant message harried superintendents need to hear to reaffirm their role as the school district leader."  American Association of School Administrators


"Clearly the standing ovation that you received at the end of your presentation spoke to your effectiveness."  New Jersey City University
