Imagine having a regular guy like Tom Hanks over to your house for a cup of coffee and you'll have a good idea of what to expect from this dynamic speaker and storyteller. Jim Morris draws lessons from his own life experience to inspire others to become mentors and leaders in their own lives and to chase their dreams. His rare quality of being a great entertainer and his sincere personality makes him a compelling speaker to audiences of all types. Audiences are also charmed by his sense of humor and comedic timing as well. On a regular basis, customers will comment, "Jim is the best speaker that we've ever had," or ask "how are we going to top this next year?" Jim has participated in such prestigious speaking events as The Million Dollar Round Table, numerous other speaker showcases, and he is also the author of "The Rookie."

Jim is particularly good at weaving the needs of his customers into his presentation. He receives standing ovations from audiences wherever he goes.

A schoolteacher by trade, Jim Morris is a loveable storyteller who captivates and inspires others to step up and change their lives. His Cinderella story serves as testimony to the power of dreams and their ability to inspire and transform human life.
