"Rocky Paths Consulting offers some of the most reflective and practical presentations I have seen. Jim Walker does an exquisite job of weaving personal stories into practical processes for success. He has a unique way of establishing trust with his audiences by sharing how to take challenges to triumph and maneuver through them with grace. Relationship building is clearly at the foundation of Rocky Paths Consulting."



Karla Radtke - Vice President, Coca-Cola North America:

Jim Walker had a huge influence on me early in my career. His collaborative, inclusive management style was motivating and inspiring – his entire team was always willing to go the extra mile to get projects across the finish line. He enabled some key career moves for me and over the years I haven't forgotten for a single minute how instrumental his coaching was.

Ron Olson - Jr. President, Up-Rite Distributing:

I had the opportunity to work for Jim Walker for a very short period of time, under 2 years. The impact he had on me during that time set me on a course to success. Jim’s ability to hold an audience's attention while presenting is rare. Jim possesses the ability to motivate and the willingness to appreciate at all levels of an organization. A true motivator, people want to be successful around Jim.
