“Jim Grant is a brilliant speaker and motivator. His natural humor combined with an acute business sense is the perfect combo for driving home a point and holding the attention of any audience. As a Regional Director for a major Telecom company, James conducted many national training seminars. As an audience member, I was continually impressed by his unique delivery and also witnessed the eye-opening reaction of other people in attendance. When Jim would speak you could almost hear people finally â€œgetting itâ€ for the first time. If you want someone who is direct and to the point and can also deliver a truly heartfelt message Jim Grant is your man!” – Jan J.
“Jim is a true entrepreneur! He has always had a creative mindset and the ability to never give up. Just talk to Jim for 5 minutes and you will see what a true visionary he is.” – Bobby D.
“Jim is an amazing speaker and a great businessman. His laid-back and conversational style, combined with his no BS attitude, is something I truly appreciate. If you get a chance to see Jim live, I can guarantee the day will be enjoyable, powerful, and filled with great information.” -Daniel V.
“Initially going into my meeting with Jim, I didn’t know what to expect. As a small business owner, I have heard it all and did not want to sit through a 2-hour sales pitch. Jim’s presentation was refreshing and full of value and ideas. He presented his services from TEL Staffing in a very informative way and he showed me how I could streamline my business and eliminate my busy work, allowing me to focus on the more important things to run my business. Thanks Jim, I will highly recommend you to everyone I know.” -Ed M.
“I completely enjoyed getting to know Jim and listening to him as a presenter. The entire day was filled with suggestions and brilliant insight. Accountability and responsibility is key for a small business owner. Jim presented in a simple and effective way and made me realize how much value him and his services can bring. Thank you Jim. -Erika L.
