Over the past 10 years I have had the pleasure & honor to hear Jim Feldman speak to large and small groups. His is mezmerizing and completely envelopes the group into total participation. We had the opportunity to work on several problems that needed to be solved and Jim always found an incredibly creative way to turn things around , show us how to "shift" our outlook and find success in what seemed like complications for the group. Recently Jim Feldman included us in a business project he had and was wonderful to work with, always searching for the joint benefit of our companies and seeking unique ways to market our new product. It will always be a joy to start new projects or do business with Jim, who is straightforward, and sharp, but also honest and empathic at all times. He has always shown incredible finesse when presenting to line staff or dining with company CEOs. I look forward to working again soon with Jim .Dec 21, 2014

My daughter was the one who worked with Jim on her presentation skills. I was very impressed with how far he had gotten with her in a compressed time frame. She really polished her skills and did a very professional job before a small group. I was extremely pleased and would recommend Jim to anyone.Sep 14, 2017VerifiedShift Happens!®'s reply

I think in Aha Moments and so does James. If you listen to him talk, he'll make you think, he'll make you act, he'll help you change. In work that I've done with him, he's always said what he'd do and did what he said. I highly respect people to honor their word.Apr 28, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Jim believes that any client that invests in bringing him to an event should use him for not only the keynote but breakouts, board of director meetings, etc. His fees are all inclusive. Local events in the Chicago area are the most cost effective. However Jim believes that your 'investment' in his presentation should deliver a high ROI. You might find a speaker that will present for less but you won't find anyone that can deliver more. Don't let what you think you know prevent you from learning what you need to know. In addition he offers coaching, webinars, on site solutions, etc. Jim makes a effort to engage as many organizations as possible that have reasonable budgets for this highly sought after speaker. One call and you will quickly determine his willingness to work with your organization.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Shifts take place within the first meeting. Jim works with both large and small organizations. He understands budget constraints. Jim normally works on a retainer for coaching rather than billing by the hour. B2B/B2C speaking fees are reduced for the Chicago area. 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed. He will work with you to ensure that Shift Happens!®
