Most athletes have never succeeded in the business world. Most corporate leaders have never been accomplished athletes. Jim Craig combines both into an advantage for you.

  • Discussing the different types of appearance options available
  • Describing and suggesting our Gold Medal Strategies corporate sales tools that will enhance the value at your event.

We engaged Jim to host a dinner and make a booth appearance for us at a recent trade show that we have been attending for more than 10 years. We had heard attendance was down almost 40%, so we were looking for Jim to make an impact – and that’s exactly what he did from the moment he landed. He was a huge hit at dinner, meeting and talking with loyal and prospective customers. Not only did he talk about his career and accomplishments, but because he did his homework, Jim was a great Ambassador for our company and products as well.The next day in the booth, we played the video and had our people wear signed jerseys that we would raffle at the show. These actions worked together to build a buzz for when Jim would be in the booth. Then 5 minutes after Jim arrived, we had a line that wrapped around the corner of our booth. Jim spoke with people, signed his new book and posed for photos almost nonstop for an hour. For any marketing activity, we measure success in terms of leads, sales calls and closed deals. We are happy to share that Jim helped us generate twice as many leads as we had in previous years. And since the show, we’ve closed two major projects and scheduled three sales calls thanks to Jim’s efforts. It was one of the best marketing investments we’ve ever made. Thanks, Jim!”
