"Jim Richardson is a powerful speaker and humorist, a remarkable world-class lecturer. He combines essential information with keen enthusiasm and tasteful humor. Jim demonstrates how to use the sound bite in daily and academic work. How to get back in the ring and fight-the-good-fight. Short, positive arguments that WIN! I strongly and unequivocally recommend Mr. Richardson!"
Dr. Gunter Seefeldt, Director, International Education Program, FOOTHILL COLLEGE, Los Altos Hills, California; every year, Dr. Seefeldt networks with many colleges and universities to send more than 400 students abroad on work assignments

"I really enjoyed your presentation, giving away some of the 'secrets' of the professional speaker:Logo for Rotary International

  1. How to relax yourself so that your audience will relax with you. One item you cleared up immediately: the idea that if I make jokes, no one will take me seriously. The key you used to expose this untruth: your jokes instantly converted your audience into a
    like-minded community; when we all laughed, we were agreeing with you about why those particular jokes are funny!
  2. How to reduce complex statements to short, pithy sound bites which the audience will easily remember. When you gave several examples, it seemed as if half the audience chanted each sound bite phrase along with you.
  3. How to get a good, strong rhythm under your words.
    Primal Delivery: making words jab into our ears. People listen to your words, but respond to your rhythm.
There's little enough to laugh about in our world but you definitely brightened up our day. I personally appreciated the guidance you gave us about How to Tell a Joke, but especially
How to Remember a Joke.
Now, remembering the punch word . . . Success!
Visit us again!

The principles you shared such as How to Make an Audience Like You A Lot, Pausing After Telling a Joke and What to Do About The FACE will be remembered and practiced! Thanks for your help!"
