Jim Strawn did a wonderful job on the Empty Bowls Monongalia live auction for our spring event.  With very little time to prepare or plan, he jumped right in and pulled it off seamlessly.  He immediately put the crowd at ease. He had them laughing, then had them bidding, bidding, bidding!  Jim made the whole process fun and easy.  We are hoping to get him back again this year.

I’ve known Jim Strawn for many years. Our paths have crossed many times with our different jobs both as volunteers and professionals. He is always a force for good, with a smile on his face and the fastest feet (try to keep up with him). He doesn’t walk, he runs from place to place. Your event will always be better if Jim is involved!

I first worked with Jim in TV and now we work together again as he is a wonderful ambassador for the YMCA Corporate Cup. You cannot help but smile when you see Jim as he is always a wealth of professional information and he always has a smile for me too!

Jim is a perpetually positive force of nature! His involvement in many organizations, committees, and events is epic. He sets the bar for others who have earned the Jefferson award. His knowledge and experience in promotion, marketing and getting others involved is at an amazingly high level. You will gain a lot by working with Jim.

Is there anyone out there that Jim Strawn hasn’t impacted in a positive way? I doubt it. Jim is one of the most encouraging and engaging people you’ll find in business and he combines marketing and public relations skills to advance the business goals of non-profits, community groups, and businesses. Hire Jim if you want a jolt of energy and results!

Jim is one of the most positive, hard-working individuals I know. If he’s involved, he wants it to be the best event, product, or message possible. I have always enjoyed working with him and learning from him. When you’re around him you can’t help but feel energized and inspired. Jim is great to work with and I highly recommend him and the vast experience he brings to the table.

Not only does he provide substantial fundraising services and connects with every sponsor, he also provides top-notch emcee services and caters to every need that may arise. Jim is known in the community as “Mr. Levee” because he dedicates himself to our brand and event year round.
