Olympic Gold Medalist, Jim Craig, was our key note speaker at the Association Member Benefits Advisors (AMBA) meeting Nov. 1-4, 2017 in Austin, Texas. AMBA invited our 200 Executive Directors and Presidents from our 55 client associations located in 35 states to come to Austin to learn more about how AMBA could help their associations grow by using our successful marketing techniques, along with our menu of insurance and other benefits endorsed by their associations. His staff called us and asked about the conference theme, and Jim styled his speech to fit our needs. AMBA sent Jim’s signed video from the movie Miracle to our guests before they heard him speak. He did a great job of reiterating this inspirational and highly entertaining true story about the 1980’s US Ice Hockey teams’ triumphant Olympic victory against the Soviet Unions, which was one of the greatest moments in sports history. Jim described how Coach Herb Brooks turned 26 undisciplined kids into a team that could achieve the unbelievable to win. Jim talked about motivation, success and what it means, and doing the impossible. In the Q &A, the audience asked many questions about leadership qualities needed to win. They were very engaged with the speaker, and said how it fit into the leadership rolls and decision making they had in their life. The group was comprised of retired and active educators and state employee associations. The audience loved him and said his message fit the conference’s message of Roadmap to Growth. I would highly recommend Jim Craig to your group as an outstanding motivational speaker and a great man.

And wanted to follow-up with you regarding our “Head 2 Head” competition vs. Seattle: we just found out on Friday that we WON!! Jim’s advice to the team meant so much and was referenced more than once in the final week of our competition. Jim graciously offered a signed ‘Team USA’ jersey to whoever put us over Seattle for the victory – the individual who won (Pat Arnason) is a HUGE fan and worked so hard to win the jersey (as a former hockey player, it means so much to him)

“It began with the crowd giving Jim a standing ovation as he was introduced and took the stage – from there, it only got better. We had the great fortune to work with Jim during our annual sales and marketing kick-off event, and it was unanimous from the 300+ attendees that he was the best motivational speaker they had heard. In addition to Jim’s celebrity as a gold medal Olympian, he is an insightful business leader and strategist. In the lead up to the event, Jim and his team took the time to get to know us from the leadership team right down to our most critical business challenges. This proved valuable in Jim’s unique and engaging delivery of his address to our team. We all felt as if he knew us for 10 years; and it provided such authenticity in Jim’s delivery of his very personal story of success, which he brilliantly used to motivate and challenge our team, that we too could overcome our business challenges and win our gold. Jim’s message of commitment, winning, team work, accountability, and leadership were delivered with such passion and energy that the team is still talking about it almost two months after the event. Our engagement with Jim was memorable on so many levels – personal and professional – and we will be engaging Jim in the future for a mid-year booster shot. Truly inspirational.”

“What a terrific job you did at our meeting this week. To put it in perspective…you nailed it!! We had unbelievable positive feedback from our management team on how upbeat and entertaining you were as well as your ability to weave the MD&A leadership & teamwork message into your theme. Even some of the more “show me folks” came away with the “message”. Thanks again and best of luck to you and the Gold Medal Strategies team.”
