“Jim Hunt’s keynote presentation, ‘From Great to AMAZING’ at the League of Oregon Cities 88th Conference was great and Amazing. After his presentation you could hear all through the halls, elected officials praising his presentation and desiring MORE! His presentation had humor, thoughtful and touching ideas that inspired me and even brought tears. We run for office to make a difference in our community and Mr. Hunt shared very practical ideas with touching humility and candor. Everyone love the presenta- tion and the man himself.”
