“Jim is a top-notch market analyst and futurist. In order to prepare his presentation he interviewed key people from our management/marketing team, provided us with useable ideas and left us with a practical understanding of our market. His talk brought clarity to issues like how population demographics affect future positioning of our products. Jim spoke to our top management and received nothing but praise from our experts: he does his job well and presents his research with great enthusiasm. Jim was rated higher than any speaker at one of our conferences for many years and I highly recommend Jim to any audience that values both content and enthusiasm.”

“As a keynote speaker at the Leadership Summit, you made a significant contribution to this important conference for business leaders in Canada’s consulting engineering sector. Your session, Success Strategies for the Age of Innovation, was an integral component of our Business Program. Feedback on the program was very positive. Participants clearly valued your observations and insights on trends, managing change and delivering ‘better benefits’.
