Jim is often booked as a speaker for a range of corporate and public events, read his latest feedback below. 

"Jim was truly an inspirational speaker. He was warm, engaging, and was able to focus his talk so that it was geared toward our organization’s mission. He was very professional and we would recommend his talk to any large group focused on resilience. Thank you" - Andye, Donor Network West

"It is a rarity to find such a casual, yet professional presenter. It’s a great mix and I definitely look forward to working with you in the future. I can’t thank you enough for making my job so much easier" - Jolene, CMP Meeting Manager, Industrial Supply Association 

"The post-event surveys are in and, as I expected, you got top marks from everyone. The only complaints were that I didn’t schedule you for a longer session, earlier in the workshop. But that just means we’ll have to bring you back!" - Martha, CMP Vice President Meetings and Trade Shows, Self Storage Association 

"Jim Davidson’s keynote presentation and incredibly personal stories of resiliency set the tone for our entire three-day National State Insurance Trade Association Conference. Our group of insurance associations and company executives are in the business of dealing with adversity and Jim used his compelling life lessons to inspire our attendees to reach for new personal and professional heights. We all regularly hear from motivational speakers, but the feedback we received on Jim’s presentation was that it uniquely resonated because it was about taking real risks and surviving in the face of impossible odds." - Carole, Executive Director, Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association

"After Jim Davidson spoke at our event, a participant later said to me, “The best speaker I’ve heard was at your conference. Jim had the most relevance to advising than all of the speakers I’ve heard.” Jim was very easy to work with, he was very organized, and made a lasting impression on the participants. We have since used his book, The Ledge, in our local literacy program; the students are on the edge of their seats while reading it." - Patty, Student Services Coordinator, Carbon Country Higher Education Center
