You taught members of our industry a needed lesson on how to bring humor in the work place and how to laugh with others! I know some will benefit a great deal. It’s about time some learned that life can be fun-filled with a good attitude.

I can’t thank you enough for your witty, humorous, mildly irreverent (yet incredibly insightful and motivational) presentation at the Clean Air Awards Luncheon. Your willingness to spend a significant amount of time with us shooting the video and learning about air quality issues speaks to your penchant for professionalism and your commitment to your craft.

Many folks have told me that this was the best Awards Luncheon the Lung Association has ever produced (and that encompasses 21 previous luncheons). What more can I say?

You were the hit of the conference with your program on “Embrace Risk, Manage Change, & Laugh Often”! It was one of the most entertaining and funny keynote presentations I have ever had the pleasure of attending. Your use of humor was well received, and extremely effective in presenting your message on managing change.

I would recommend your presentation to any organization or group looking for and entertaining and enlightening look at today’s business challenges.

Wow!!!! Truly everyone enjoyed your presentation . . . Did you get a personal insight into what’s going on in the industry? How could you possibly have picked up on the fact that changes in distribution are probably the industry’s primary concern right now? Jim, many thanks for a fantastic job. Your on my short list for a return presentation.
