  • Writing for Bob Hope

  • The Message Is You- In a lively, entertaining, interactive presentation, Jim provides practical techniques to help listeners overcome fear and be themselves in front of any group.
  • Parenting Your Parents-In 1996, Jim made the transition from child to caregiver and has found it enriching, exhausting and rewarding. An only child, he moved back to Texas from Los Angeles to help care for his parents when his father had a stroke and his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Jim chronicles the ups and downs of becoming an overnight parent in a heartwarming - often humorous - talk filled with practical insights for those who may face similar challenges.
  • If I Can Make It There, You Can Make It Anywhere!- A hilarious, fun-filled re-living of Jim's days in New York where he studied acting, wrote jokes for Joan Rivers, appeared on Jeopardy, drove a cab, sold articles to the New York Times and Reader's Digest and wrote a book, How to Survive a Roommate, that landed him on the Today Show with Jane Pauley. Along with many laughs comes a powerful message about survival and spirit.
  • PowerPoint to the People-Jim opens with five minutes of the worst PowerPoint presentation ever devised - and that's saying a lot. Then he stops the speech and has the audience members identify the things he did wrong and how it affected them. After dissecting what went wrong, he helps them see how PowerPoint can be used effectively, sparingly and with powerful impact.
  • How Not to Speak Like a Geek-im deals with the challenges of the left-brained, presenter who feels they must include every detail and show every diagram. With humor and real life examples, he proves that even an engineer can balance content with creativity - and keep the audience awake.
  • Health & Wellness
  • Inspirational
