Who is my Instructor?
Meet Jimmy Marlin Epperson
Messaging, influence and strategic communications are where I find my flow. I like to spend that time with technical experts and managers who need help explaining their ideas or projects to their audiences.
I worked in communications for the last 20 years. Most recently I consulted for Facebook Analytics where I created communication training and taught more than 600 data scientists and engineers how to influence others through simple, clear communication. The program received a 90+ approval rating.
I started my career as a newspaper reporter, where I learned the value of relationships, working hard and finding the most important facts. I had a short stint as a commercial fisherman in the Florida Keys. Then I moved into business consulting and worked for AT&T as an internal communication consultant before starting his own business in 2014.
What I Do Now
I own Clear Points Messaging and I continue to consultant for enterprise clients where I develop internal and external content and consult executives and managers on strategic communication and personal emotional intelligence.
How I Can Help You
I want to help you organize your thoughts. I want to bring structure and discipline to your thinking, whether you’re working with an internal team, talking to a prospect or preparing for a presentation.
I help you build trust and empathy so you can explain your idea in a way where others will hear you and take action.
How Do I Sign Up?
We don’t work with everyone and we are not for everyone.
We’re going to make you think. And you might even struggle in our workshop. There might be times where you get frustrated and confused.
This is normal. We’re finding clarity. And it can be difficult and draining.
If that does not sound beneficial, then this workshop is not for you.
If you are the type to dig deep so you can unscramble your mind and find the best path forward, you should apply here.
