Mr. Harris spoke in Omaha for the Omaha Collegiate Consortium and University of Nebraska at Omaha Recovery Community in July of 2019. Mr. Harris did an excellent job of fitting the needs of the group. Mr. Harris was engaging, energetic, and adaptable. He showed a thorough knowledge of recovery communities and gave plenty of opportunities to ask questions. We had a wide range of knowledge on recovery communities in the group being trained, and he was able to relate to all of those groups. I would highly recommend having Mr. Harris present to your group.
I was the chair of the planning committee of a regional recovery conference and J was our keynote speaker. Working with him was great! Leading up to the event, J was very quick to respond and listened to our goals and needs. He brought all his own materials and arrived early to check out the space. Overall, the response to his talk was very positive and he shared a lot of great content.
My experience working with Jarmichael Harris exceeded my expectations! Jarmichael was thorough and resourceful in providing technical assistance to our collegiate recovery program. He helped our program identify clear goals, objectives and a strategic plan and moved our program from inaction to action. I am grateful for his commitment to our program's vision and his willingness to provide us with additional resources to meet our needs. Jarmichael was personable and professional and I would highly recommend his consulting services.
