Full Bio

At the age of 7, Alan Zimmerman was selling greeting cards door-to-door.  By age 14, he owned a small international import business.  By age 21, he was teaching at the University of Minnesota, and during the next 15 years, he was selected as the "Outstanding Faculty Member" by two different universities. 

At age 36, our speaker retired from teaching and opened his own speaking and training company.  That position has allowed him to deliver more than 2000 programs, in 49 states and 22 countries, maintaining a 92% repeat and referral business. 

Of course, you may already be familiar with Dr. Zimmerman.  You may have seen him on CNN or on the CBS Morning Show.  And you may have read his books, which have been featured on TV shows across the country. 

When you hire Dr. Zimmerman, you can expect a powerful, practical program that really works.  A program heavy on content, big on audience involvement, and strong on results.  That's why he has been inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame, an honor that has only been given to a few people in the last 30 years - including President Ronald Reagan, General Colin Powell, and best-selling author Dr. Ken Blanchard. 

On the personal side, Alan Zimmerman is a husband, a father, a biker and a hiker ... who has explored everything from the jungles of Thailand to the cold chill of the Arctic Circle. 

For more insight, just listen to his clients:
"In one word, you are amazing! The evaluations from your sessions were exceptional. Your scores were off the charts.  One key executive told me, 'Let's bring this guy back each year!' "
John A. Barnshaw III

"Your delivery is impeccable - your timing, your humor, your story telling, and relevance, are unsurpassed by any speaker I've ever heard. It's easy to see why you've been given the Certified Speaking Professional designation and are a worthy member of the Speakers Hall of Fame."

"You blew me and the entire audience away!   The feedback just keeps coming in, even days and weeks after your programs have finished.  People are saying, ''Wonderful speaker ... I want to take more classes from Dr. Zimmerman ... I loved the seminar ... I learned so much that it helped transform my relationships with my family and coworkers ... and ... 'I would highly recommend this Dr. Zimmerman and his programs to anyone interested in improving their communications skills.'   We couldn't be more pleased!"
