He incorporates the skills he gained from over twenty five years in the entertainment industry into his powerful programs, cleverly balancing the connection between education and entertainment. Curtis is an expert at transforming organizations by inspiring others to live their life at a higher level of performance.

He started his entrepreneurial career at the age of twelve, marketing and self-managing himself as a mime and juggler. He was a nationally recognized mime performing at such notable places as Universal Studio-Hollywood and Caesars Palace Las Vegas as well as performing arts centers coast to coast and numerous cruise ships traveling all over the world.

After shifting his focus to students and teachers, he became a highly sought out consultant for arts in education, as well as an inspirational speaker for teachers and administrators. Curtis' performances touched the heart, encouraged staff and empowered individuals to see the difference their lives can make to that of a child. This message, which started in the schools, easily transitioned to corporations big and small.

His deeply profound insight and perspective coupled with his high energy presentations have made him a highly sought after speaker among such notable companies as Walt Disney Entertainment, Swiss Army Brands, Luxottica Retail and Procter and Gamble.

Curtis Zimmerman is the author of I Believe…What do you Believe?, Keys to Success in College and Life, and a contributing author to Pillars of Success and Lessons from the Road. He was honored to share his message with more than 14,000 Airmen for the United States Air Force and received the prestigious National Leadership Award for outstanding service from United States Congressman Tom Reynolds, is a member of the National Speakers Association, and an NCAA Health and Safety Grant Available Speaker.

Curtis currently resides in the greater Cincinnati area with his wife and three children.
