Jim Whitt has been called a blue collar business consultant. He’s been called a professional provoker. And that’s fine with him. He wears boots and jeans and admits to provoking people for a living.
Jim comes from a blue collar background that has provided him with a unique perspective as a speaker, writer and business consultant. He has a degree in animal science and used to make his living as a working cowboy. He spent a dozen years in sales and marketing with two Fortune 500 agribusiness companies before launching his own consulting business in 1988.
His presentations are a combination of standup, storytelling and audience participation. He guarantees you’ll laugh and learn. You’ll laugh while Jim uses a rope and a shock collar to demonstrate how we have been trained like animals from early childhood. You’ll learn how we can overcome our animal training and reach our potential by tapping into the only source of motivation that is unique to the human species.
For the last 27 years Jim has helped people find and fulfill their purpose in life by using the process found in his book, The Transformational Power of Purpose. As a consultant he helps businesses maximize their potential by applying the principles of purposeful leadership found in his book, Riding for the Brand. As a columnist, he writes on the topics of personal and organizational development for various publications including his blog at PurposeUnlimited.com.
