Jim Morris Reviews

  • Jim was a fantastic speaker and one who resonated with all ages. I would highly recommend him.
    Huntington University - Oct 11 2022

  • The AAE logistics coordinator was awesome! Because of the fantastic level of communication, the night went smoothly. Thank you for being wonderful!
    Indian Hills Community College - Nov 01 2021

  • National Ground Water Association - Dec 12 2019

  • Kareo - Aug 23 2019

  • Every year, our organization is challenged with finding the right speaker for our annual “SIOR Night.” This year, we had Jim speak, and he was the best speaker, by far, we’ve had in years! He took his personal life stories and made them relatable to everyone in the room. I think everyone walked away with two key messages from Jim—be a dream maker and know who you are. It doesn’t matter what walk of life you come from, Jim will have a positive impact on you. He is one of the most dynamic and impactful speakers, an absolute benefit to any event.”
