D-A-T-I-N-G Your Customer

Customers today are armed with information about your company, your products and services, the costs and the competition. They know they can vote with their dollars and they exercise their right to do just that. By the time Customers comes to you with a problem, they have already told others, formulated their defense (or offense) tactic, and planned for their rebuttal. It's just like D-A-T-I-N-G. The goal is to bring them back.







Uncovering Innovation Using 3D Thinking

Jim delivers innovative solutions to problems that 'keep the audience awake at night." He sustains conversations with the audience in their language, offering relevant information targeted to the specific needs and wants of the attendees. Fear makes us irrational. Fearlessness is what distinguishes the DNA of entrepreneurs.
Mistakes happen but we can learn from them. It is time to reach out, stretch, and do things differently by asking your self, “What am I going to do differently today, that will get me better results than yesterday” Jim's goal is to transform how your clients think...better than anyone else. He provides them with a view that ultimately proves to be so compelling that you can never see things in quite the same way again.
Stunning visuals. Licensed movie scenes and conversations with the audience demonstrate how to go 'inside the box' to discover new solutions to existing problems.
