Check out Jim O’s Recent Presentations:


“B.R.A.K.E.S. was honored to have Jim “O” Oberhofer as a key note speaker for our 9th annual Gala in September of 2016.  Jim O. did an excellent job motivating, engaging and getting everyone to understand the goals of the charity and the event. Jim O’s passion for speaking is apparent from the moment he begins, his ability to tie in his own personal family tragedy as well as the B.R.A.K.E.S. story together had our guests smiling and crying at the same time.

I would recommend Jim O. as a speaker for any motivational or impact group. Jim O. does an excellent job of getting people to understand what he is saying and why his story is so relatable to many others.”
