"Jim personifies the idea of strategic creativity—the ability to imagine new possibilities while also having the professional discipline and skills to zero in on the best thinking and gain traction for fresh ideas.  As a great collaborator who brings his best effort while also making space for others’ input, honoring their ideas, and creating synergies, Jim has a multiplying effect on any group in which he participates.  As a dynamic facilitator, Jim uses a wide range of meaningful and memorable exercises that help participants achieve their goals with greater efficiency and impact.  I wholeheartedly recommend working with Jim—he will certainly help improve your performance.”

“Holding a workshop with Jim Harrison gives your team a shot of Vitamin “C”. It’s like having a personal muse, a creative training and conditioning coach and an inspirational mentor all rolled into one. He humbly establishes credibility and gains trust in a way that opens our minds and stirs our creative instincts. Instead of an outside consultant, it felt as if a new team member had joined us for the day and shared best practices that made us think differently.
 
From his roots as an artist to decades as a professional designer to his leadership role at The University of Florida, Jim draws from a deep well of experience. He has impressed me in each of these capacities throughout my career and I was so pleased to share his expertise with our communications team.”

"Jim is a brilliant creative strategist who will stretch you in ways you didn’t know you needed. I have had the pleasure of working with him since 2006, collaborating on six major client projects including major branding overhauls to strategic planning and marketing for young, start-up brands. Jim’s insight and ability to expand our thinking and instill a process for creative problem solving is his gift. Sure, he can whip up a fantastic logo and has tons of chops in creative design. Yet, it’s his creative genius that gets you to that execution that you want. He is absolutely my go-to for all creative projects and included in any of my strategy teams. Brilliant. Hire him and allow him to teach you how to think more creatively.”
