Message Momentum: Accelerating Business Growth through Your Team
Every leader wants their teams to have a consistent, engaging message and stories to share. But many also see the symptoms of mediocre messaging and don’t know how to fix it. They might believe that they, and their teams, aren’t naturally equipped to stand out in their customer conversations.
In this program for high-potential managers and teams, Jim breaks through common misperceptions and false assumptions. Your teams will be equipped to not only craft a new, effective message right away but also make it stick for long-term results.
Loud, Clear, and Growing: How Businesses Stand Out through Everyday Messages
It is harder than ever to be noticed and appreciated in our increasingly noisy professional worlds. But you can stand out in a way that others miss: simply put, the way that everyone close to the business talks about it (or doesn’t!) every day.
In this keynote, Jim shares his simple, practical, and powerful Message Management Model™. Packed with examples, tips, and good humor, this program can change the language of the organization and the effectiveness of your customer conversations.
Make Your Message Matter More: Finding and Using Conversational Power to Stand Out
Finding new opportunities can be particularly tough when “you” and your ideas are the main part of the business – and maybe you’re the only messenger. In this program tailored for young professionals, subject-matter experts, and entrepreneurs, Jim helps you learn to craft your message and share it effectively, consistently, and comfortably… without feeling false, sales-y, or like “that person.”
A Simple Concept for Powerful Results
Through research and his practical experience, Jim has learned how effective everyday business messaging is a like a three-legged stool:
- A simple, conversational message (including great stories) that is easy to remember and enjoyable to share:
- Enough messengers, the actual people (including but certainly not limited to staff members and current customers) who are equipped and motivated to share the message;
- A few repeatable management habits that keep the growth message fresh, relevant — and a priority for everyone

Rave Reviews for Jim’s Presentations
I can’t say enough about the great job Dr. Jim Karrh did presenting as the keynote speaker for Best Association Management’s marketing seminar. Nonprofit associations need to market for member recruitment, member retention, events, issues and fundraising…Immediately following the training one client association executed a successful fundraising campaign using Jim’s marketing and messaging techniques. Dr. Karrh is engaging, humorous and full of powerful information. You can’t go wrong with him as your keynote!
Jim spoke at our Packaging That Sells conference, which draws upwards of 350 brand marketers to discuss how packaging supports the brand promise. Jim’s presentation was perfectly tailored to our audience, extremely well delivered and received. His presentation style is genuine and engaging, he is the consummate professional (reliable, passionate, enthusiastic) and I can’t recommend him enough. He was an asset to our program, and the feedback on his session was excellent.
Jim spoke to our annual worldwide client meeting; he received high ratings from our clients for his concept, presentation and transfer of knowledge to them in their jobs.
