In his program, “Jamestown: Seven Modern Lessons from an Ancient World,” Jim tells the compelling story of the founding of Jamestown while sharing unique lessons from the settlers that can be applied in our own lives today.
No other speaker in the nation is more entertaining and topical for a conference held in the Williamsburg-Jamestown area, or anywhere else in Virginia. Historians can tell you what happened at Jamestown in 1607, but no one else can teach conference attendees practical information while making history come alive.
In his presentation, Jim teaches listeners how to:
- Be brave. Take risks.
- Boil the water.
- Cut down the grass.
- Be nice to strangers.
- Don’t burn bridges.
- Be afraid—of everything.
- Lead by example.
- Be adaptable.
- Be willing to change your plans.
- Be a survivor.
