My name is Jim Greene. I am a motivational and inspirational speaker who specializes in motivational teaching programs for students. I hold a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in theology. Professionally, I have 20 years of experience in healthcare, in emergency room crisis intervention. My motivational programs are geared to help "underachieving" students to reach their full potential despite their perceived obstacles. I use down-to-earth practical strategies to motivate students to turn their setbacks into comebacks. My programs include the following topics: - Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention - Attitude - Bullying - Character Education - Ethics and Positive Choices - Self-Esteem Enhancement - Mental Health and Wellness - Overcoming Adversity - Peak Performance - Psychology - Success Strategies - Religion and Spirituality - Sports, Athletics, Sportsmanship - Stress-Reduction Techniques - Customized Programs The following are speaking testimonials from clients: - "For the past 20 years, Jim has worked as a crisis counselor. He is also a great motivational speaker. He inspires his audiences to turn their 'setbacks' into 'comebacks.' What Rudy is to Notre Dame, Jim is to New Jersey." - Robert Gilbert, PhD, Professor Montclair State University - "I worked closely with Jim Greene for many years. Rarely do we find such a humane and compassionate human being who has such sensitive understanding of human existence. The increasing demands from society on individuals and the many pitfalls and traps of modern society starting from school days and into adulthood often leave many behind stunned by life. This type of exclusion is what Jim addresses in his life, in his profession and in his speeches. There is such a great need for people like him. He has been an inspiration to me and to all who came into contact with him for help. He always makes time for those in need, and I can proudly say that he makes a difference in this too-often-indifferent world." --Paul Hriso, M.D. Dear Mr. Greene, I appreciate your visit to Bloomfield High School. Your speech taught me a lot about how I should treat my friends and others. I felt inspired because my classmates and I learned about your struggles and how you made them into positives. You should visit many more high schools to inspire them as well. - Xavier, Student - Dear Mr. Greene, Your presentation was a big "eye opener" for me. Thanks for taking the time out of your life to come to this school and sharing your experiences with us. It was very interesting and fun. I will try my best to be "builder upper" and not a "breaker downer." I will try to be the best I can be, and never lose hope. I learned many things that I know will help me in the future. - K. Weaver, Student

I speak to any type of groups and organizations, high schools, colleges, and cooperation. My specific message is "appreciation of life". My motto is "tough times don't last; tough people do". And my definition of "tough" is "mentally tough", not "physically tough". I teach how to accept things you cannot control and choose and create the things you want to happen, and then "taking action"; I call it "act". I also talk about P.E.P. (Positively Enhance Performance) with the 7 P's -- Prayer, Passion, Purpose, Perseverance, Pressure, Persistence, and Practice). For more details, the contact info is at my website.
