"I've known and admired Jim Cathcart since the late 1970s when we were both aspiring speakers
growing our careers. We have served together on boards and committees, shared social times and
business collaborations. Through it all I have found Jim to be a man of character and a compelling
speaker. We invited him to serve as Artist in Residence at High Point University. That should tell you
that Jim is a speaker you can trust to bring great ideas to your organization."
Dr. Nido R. Qubein, President, High Point University
"There are many resources on delivering a better speech, but my great friend
Jim Cathcart has written the Bible on how to be a distinctive speaker. There's an
enormous difference between the two. Jim not only teaches how your presentation
can make a greater impact on your audience, he gives you every conceivable
nuance on each step you must take - on and off the platform - to stand out when
you stand up to speak."
