Jim PlatzerMotivational Speaker and Blind Pilot
Leader Dogs for the Blind
Jim’s business is helping others. His product is emotional innovation that will leverage your organization’s greatest tactical asset —relationships and perspective. Jim Platzer is a former President of a distribution facility for a Fortune 500 company forced to an early retirement due to retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative condition that leads to blindness. After a challenging transition, Jim found Leader Dogs for the Blind, who matched him with a dog and trained them both to see the world in an entirely new way leading to a renewed sense of purpose. Today, Jim is a keynote motivational speaker. His message? Your most important sense is your sense of purpose.
