Although born blind, James Garriss was taught that his opportunities were limitless despite his limitations. At four years old with three major surgeries and enough vision to see the big E on an eye chart, James was photocopying jet stream maps for his families business. Fair and unfair were unacceptable concepts during his upbringing. Instead he learned how to be a solution, not an addition to a problem be it his own, his families or now as manager of Browning Media, his business.
As a motivational speaker, James brings a unique mix of story, humor and experience to any meeting or conventions. As a key contributor in increasing a company's revenue over 300% in 5 short years, he has worn many hats and can sympathize with the hardships of nearly every departmental need of a company. Be it managing, marketing, selling, research or leading, James can help departments overcome all forms of adversity. Additionally, his visual disability has allowed him to utilize non-traditional concepts to delivering better business building skills. Plus, being blind has allowed him to stumble through company barriers in humorous but also informative ways. With some family members in the business with him, they would continuously push him with one hand while covering their eyes with the other. Because of this unique upbringing and background James has presented all over the US with concepts like
Become a solution to any problem
Be limitless despite your limitations
Battling through what you can't see
Don't let fear blind you from your future
What you can't see can make you stronger
Oh Family: The fun roller coaster of working in a family business
Turn your work group into a family

With the many hats James wears in business, he still continuously wears his most important one, his historical climatologist hat. When he's not marketing the company's products or helping organizations improve teamwork, he's researching, writing and speaking about weather and climate. Browning Media has been presenting information on climate and weather expectations for over forty years. While they specialize in 3-6 month outlooks, their research allows them to determine multi-year natural climatological impact on

James has spoken to companies all over the world in nearly every industry from agricultural and finance to hospitality and energy.
Whether you're looking for an entertaining, humorous and motivational pick-me-up for your next company meeting or you want to learn how understanding climate and weather now can create non-correlative opportunities in the near future for any organization, we hope you'll consider James for a one-of-a-kind addition any company or organization activit
