His passion for community investment has been a common thread through his career and has earned him a philanthropy award from the Canadian Association of Fundraising Professionals, two “40 Under 40” awards with Calgary Inc (now Avenue Magazine), an e-Award for Community Service from Alberta Venture Magazine, the Sherrold Moore Community Award thru the Calgary Chamber and most recently recognized as a Calgary Leader by Business in Calgary Magazine. And then there’s Jim’s inspired contribution to Dave Kelly Live! Thank goodness, Jim came west!

This optimist’s TLC always energizes his family and friends! Jim says: “My philosophy isn’t that I’m dying; my philosophy is that I’m living!” Jim has terminal cancer and was given a year to live. He’s passed this date and is directing much of his energy to his health, his family and helping others deal with cancer through his blog –

On November 13th, Jim will share how he’s overcome the obstacles in his life and how he defines success.

Bring your friends and colleagues and be inspired!!
