Customizing Your Content
Unlike many other speakers, Jim will build his presentation based upon close consultation with you, enhanced by a very detailed, customized research process.
The result? You get a keynote specifically tailored to your issues and event theme – with highly detailed industry specific insight.
Typically, this will involve the following steps
- an initial exploratory discussion, in which Jim will work with you to understand the key goals, message and issues Jim will need to focus in on with his talk
- during this call, Jim will be able to quickly provide you with a high level overview of how he will be able to approach the talk in the context of your needs.
- Jim then undertakes his detailed research, with particular use on accessing a specialized database of millions of articles from media sources, industry publications, research reports and scientific journals
- he will then schedule an initial presentation review with you, to provide a further opportunity to shape the direction, tone, content and approach for his talk
- additional followup rollup reviews will be scheduled (if necessary)
How customized is Jim’s insight? Consider this: after one talk for an agricultural group, one fellow approached Jim and asked him how long he had been a farmer!

Kick it Up a Notch with a Pre-Event Video!
An increasing number of clients are looking for a short little video to promote their event, and Jim has been delivering!
Jim films for you a custom pre-event video, which is then set to Hollywood-style production values with his overseas video producer, Armine Simonyan.
During the day, she’s a Television LiveNews broadcasting specialist based in Russia, including various overseas version of Deal No Deal, Dancing with The Stars and many other popular shows – and at night she does freelance work for Jim!
Here’s a little bit more insight on what’s involved:
- you get a professionally produced pre-event video in digital format
- it’s short (<2:20), designed for sharing on Twitter, Facebook and other social media promotional channels
- it’s proven to drive event registration ; both SAP and Siemens ended up with oversold events
- Jim consults with you on the key message for the video, and then films his message in his home green-screen studio
- the raw video is sent to his overseas video producer for production into a highly polished, professional video with a powerful message
- delivery time is approximately 2 weeks.
- a minimal cost investment for Jim’s overseas producer of $1,000 gets you a pre-event video that will “wow” your attendees and drive attendance for your event
Check the numerous videos which Jim provided to other clients – you’ll be convinced this small investment will provide massive dividends!
Drive Attendance and Registrations!
Your key goals are to drive attendance, get event registrations happening, and build some buzz! Watch these pre-event videos Jim prepared for several clients which did exactly that!
Deliver a Message Before the Meeting!
Get your people thinking about the issues in the room, before they get into the room! These videos were distributed to attendees in advance of an internal global leadership meeting.
Post Event Recap Video
Your event does not stop with the keynote – nor should it.
Jim Carroll will put together a professionally produced, summary video for you of his keynote, including key messages from his talk on stage, enhanced by a personal message from Jim filmed in his green screen home studio, The video – 5 to 10 minutes in length (or longer) depending on your objectives and distribution method – is then brought up to professional standards by his overseas video producer.

Approximate cost of post-event video: $2,500 to $5,000, with a custom quote to be provided based upon discussion with Jim of your objectives, distribution method, etc.
