Jimmie at the American Red Cross, Blood Service

“Jimmie Lee Solomon was a guest speaker for the American Red Cross, Blood Service in February 2011. He was a smash hit with our audience. Some of the attendees were senior executives across all industries and functional areas, and they always expect a lot. Satisfying them is no small challenge.

His talk received rave reviews, both the day of your presentation, and for weeks after. I know by conversing with some of the audience members, and making conversation before his speech personally, and that means a lot to us and our reputation in the community.
It is obvious Mr. Solomon was well prepared. He told a family experience with the American Red Cross.

Most of all, I think the audience really appreciated his willingness to share your own personal experiences from the heart, which is very rare and beautiful. All of us face life transitions-and his story, so vividly told, gave all of us the encouragement to move ahead in our own lives—and not to fear.”

    See what my clients have to say:

    “Generosity in spirit, wisdom and humor is the best way to describe Jimmie Lee Solomon as a man and a speaker.
    I have had the luck to hear him speak on more than one occasion and true to form, he was an inspiration to not only the girls at the Girls, Inc. Power of the Purse Gala, but to the men and women in the room. As a public speaker he uses his gift of finding the common ground. He captures the audience using introspection and self awareness, all the while weaving a tale of intrigue and insight.”
