Gold Medal Strategies is proud to announce a three-year partnership with Numotion, the nation’s leading provider of Complex Rehab Technology (CRT). It is our mission to create motivational content to inspire customers and employees and help create awareness for issues of those living with mobility disabilities. Content will also be available on Numotion.com.
“I am honored to have a spokesperson as well regarded as Jim align with Numotion and our efforts to assist customers to more actively participate in everyday life,” said Mike Swinford, CEO, Numotion. “Jim’s passion for improving the lives of others by sharing his experiences will help inspire our customers, and others, that their dreams are possible.”
Gold Medal Strategies first became involved with Numotion when Jim was invited to speak at the company’s annual National Leadership Conference. The relationship further developed through advocacy efforts in D.C., when Craig accompanied Numotion leadership to Capitol Hill to help shine a light on the importance of complex rehab technology. Through those efforts, we learned the unique challenges faced by those with mobility issues and wanted to help.
“In my years as a motivational speaker I’ve learned that the power of dreaming, setting goals and having determination does indeed make a difference in a person’s outlook on life,” said Jim Craig, U.S. Hockey gold medalist. “There’s power in hope and I look forward to bringing just that to Numotion’s customers, employees and anyone faced with challenges.”
Content created by Gold Medal Strategies will share Jim’s experience of overcoming the odds to achieve his dreams through videos and blog posts.

About Jim Craig
Jim Craig is an American ice hockey goaltender who was part of the U.S. hockey team that won the gold medal during the 1980 Olympics at Lake Placid, New York. The American victory in the hockey tournament, known as the “miracle on ice,” was one of the greatest surprises in the history of the Olympics. Craig, who started every game in goal, was a leading figure in the team’s success. One of the enduring images of the 1980 Games was of Craig, wrapped in the American flag, searching the stands for his widowed father in order to share the gold-medal-winning victory. Following the Olympics, Craig played in the NHL for the Atlanta Flames, Boston Bruins, and Minnesota North stars before he suffered a career ending injury. Today, Jim is the President and Owner of Gold Medal Strategies, a motivational speaking and training company where he travels across the U.S. inspiring individuals and teams to be the best they can be and emphasizing that anything is possible when you believe.
