BIO

It’s September 21, 2018 Jim Cathcart delivers a keynote at the Thought Leaders’ Summit at the old Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and receives the Quilly® Award for being the best-selling author of 20 books including his latest, a collaboration called The Will To Win. As a speaker, Jim Cathcart was selected as a 2017 Top 25 Speaker (#9) out of 1,300 speakers in an online survey by Speaking.com. 27,000 people voted in this survey to isolate the Top 25. This is the 3rd year in a row that Jim achieved this ranking.

Designated as the first “Entrepreneur in Residence” by California Lutheran University’s School of Management since late 2016. Jim is also an Adjunct Professor in their Executive MBA program. Chosen one of the Top Sales Influencers of 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017 by Top Sales World Magazine based in London & Paris. In December of 2012 Jim Cathcart was inducted into the Sales & Marketing Hall of Fame in London, England. This is in addition to his existing Speaker Hall of Fame listing.

His TEDx video is in their Top 1% worldwide with over 1,800,000 views in just under 5 years. (Top 200 out of 130,000 videos).

With over 42 years of professional speaking around the world, Jim Cathcart is one of the best known and most award-winning motivational speakers in the business. He has delivered more than 3,200 presentations to audiences in every state of the US, most provinces of Canada and countries from Scotland to Singapore. Some of his most recent international engagements were for tens of thousands of business leaders in Taiwan and 21 cities across Mainland China; hoteliers in Bali, Indonesia; engineers in Toulouse, France; business owners in Bogota’, Colombia; Costa Rica; Panama;  sales people in Warsaw & Wroclaw, Poland; Santiago, Chile  and Singapore! A business strategist, psychological researcher and philosopher at heart, Jim is also a down-to-earth regular guy. He has worked in warehouses, driven trucks, sold door to door and at trade shows, been a bank teller, plays guitar in night clubs and pubs, and has toured much of the world on a motorcycle.

A TV interviewer said, “Jim Cathcart is what ‘Fonzie’ would have been if he’d gone to business school.” (Millennials are asking, “Who is Fonzie?”) Jim was an insurance agent for many years, an Army officer and a bill collector who, while in his twenties, had to repossess log trucks in the mountains of northern Arkansas. From this varied background he decided in 1972 to become an authority on the subject of motivation and through decades of dedication, study and hard work, he made it happen. And even today, he’s also an active motorcyclist and guitar performer.

EVEN JIM’S FELLOW SPEAKERS HIRE HIM! Here’s just a short list of the other speaker friends and authors who have endorsed Jim (in many cases they have also booked Jim to speak at their own events): Brian Tracy, Jack Canfield, Tom Hopkins, Todd Duncan, Les Brown, Ken Blanchard, Nido Qubein, Spencer Johnson, Daniel Burrus, Norman Vincent Peale, Zig Ziglar, Stephen Covey, Og Mandino, Earl Nightingale, Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, Tony Alessandra, Gerhard Gschwandtner, Jeffrey Hayzlett, Randy Gage and Cavett Robert.

After hearing Earl Nightingale on the radio one day in 1972, Jim was inspired to change his life. While working as a government clerk in the Housing Authority he determined to learn psychology and master the process of self-improvement. Through years of fanatical dedication to this quest he learned new skills, became a certified trainer for a variety of programs, read stacks of books, attended countless seminars and volunteered thousands of hours to civic organizations. In this process he moved from clerk, to manager, to sales person, to leader, to trainer, to author and professional speaker.

Today he is listed in the professional Speaker Hall of Fame, is a recipient of the prestigious Golden Gavel Award (along with Earl Nightingale, Art Linkletter, Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins and many others), has been the president of the National Speakers Association and received the  Cavett Award  for a lifetime of service. He has authored 20 books and scores of recorded programs. In 2014, 15, 16 & 17 he was listed as one of Top 50 Sales Influencers in the World by Top Sales World. The San Diego chapter of the National Speakers Association renamed their member of the year award “The Jim Cathcart Service Award” and the Greater Los
Angeles chapter gave Jim the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2003. In 2008 he was inducted as one of the “Legends of the Speaking Profession.” And in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 he was selected as one of the Top 5 Sales & Customer Service Speakers by Speaking.com in an online survey of over 27,000 people.

Insurance Industry Keynote Speech

The insurance business is heavily regulated and Gina’s programs are specifically designed for insurance agents and brokers. Even with today’s regulations, however, tremendous opportunities exist for insurance professionals to build awareness and attract new clients with a bit of knowledge and skill. Insurance agents can create value-packed PDF reports to give away for free. They can create educational videos on YouTube. They can create educational “info-graphics” about their business. And certainly, insurance companies can help their agents by tapping into their agents passion and love for the human spirit.

The vast majority of insurance agents are just wasting time waiting for the phone to ring. They might be having fun. They might be “being social” on social, but they’re not attracting new clients. They’re not building revenue. In Gina’s 60-minute keynote program, she walks attendees through a series of case studies that are specifically designed for brokers and insurance agents. She is familiar with insurance vernacular including MGAs, soft markets versus hard markets, and surplus lines from the inside out. Gina Yarrish is the only speaker you want to hire for your insurance meeting.


Motivational Speaker for Insurance Agents

More than ever insurance agents want and need access to ongoing remote programs. Gina’s remote programs are extremely well received in the insurance industry because the agents immediately sense that he has gone through the same process that they are in themselves. She knows the industry forwards and back. Although not in insurance, Gina has been self-employed since her entire life starting in her family’s Real Estate business building it to a seven-figure empire by her mid-twenties. Actually all of the strategies she shares in her remote programs. She also has a passion for positive psychology and the science of peace and happiness, both of
which contribute to success in commission sales positions. In addition to the remote programs, brokers and agents will be invited to join Gina in the arena for a life-changing Equine Experience like no other. Let us know when you would like Gina to incorporate any particular message into her program. She is happy to customize a program to best compliment your event and training objectives.

Gina will challenge your audience…

  • To learn how to replace old patterns and habits with those that create positive results time and time again.
  • Recondition thinking from the end, so clients have the “Know-How” to change for the better that’s not uncomfortable but rather fun, inviting and people are enthusiastic about the new approach.
