Jim has a wonderful ability to get and keep his audience engaged through thought provoking discussions. Oftentimes the smallest details have the biggest impact yet we never knew it. Jim shows his audience this and much more.

I met Jim at a High Ground of Texas meeting in Amarillo. Jim’s presentation on community branding hit home for me. Jim is very creative and has an understanding of economic development and what it takes for communities to stand out. He is very easy to talk to and is eager to share thoughts and ideas.
