Jim recently served as the Emcee of our Volunteer Appreciation Event – What a treat! He had the (Adult) audience, clapping, singing and laughing – as if we were living our childhood again." -Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics
Award-winning kid rocker, Jim Cosgrove is a former newspaper reporter and corporate public relations professional who had the sense enough to get a “real” job helping kids laugh.
After nearly two decades of working with kids, Cosgrove has discovered that they have much to teach adults about communicating, attaining goals, and living life to the fullest. He takes the many lessons he’s learned from kids back to corporate America, because, he says, what’s effective for success on the playground and in the classroom is effective for success in the boardroom.
In his inspirational presentation Live like a child! Succeed like a child!, Cosgrove uses his own songs and anecdotes to emphasize that taking a more child-like (not childish) approach to life can make a remarkable difference in our pursuit of success – no matter our occupation. He draws on his experience as a media spokesman for Sprint Corporation, a staff writer for the Albuquerque Journal, and as a national public speaker to connect with his corporate audiences.
“Sometimes our biggest issues and concerns have the simplest solutions,” says Cosgrove. “It can be as easy as looking at challenges through the eyes of a child.”
