Jim Whitt is not a professional speaker - he is a professional provoker. He provokes people to venture outside the boundaries of their comfort zones and learn how to reach their full potential. His presentations are not only provoking - they are fast paced, highly interactive and served with a large helping of humor. Think of him as a cross between Jeff Foxworthy and Dr. Phil - he makes audiences laugh and think - all at the same time. Jim's topics are based on the principles found in his books, The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding and Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life and Riding for the Brand: The Power of Purposeful Leadership.
