Jim Kellner

Speaker - Hypnotist - Trainer

Jim Kellner overcame severe stage fright, introversion, and being ‘painfully shy’ to become recognized as a dynamic and charismatic entertainer and speaker. 

Combing his love of helping people and performing Jim added trainings and public speaking to his resume. He’s been recognized as an expert in his field by being invited to speak at Grand Canyon University’s 2018 TEDx event, Magnum Opus. 

His TEDx talk, ‘If You Can’t Be Hypnotized, You Lose’ has received acclaim from fellow hypnotists and lay persons as well. He is one of only a handful of Hypnotists/Hypnotherapists to have ever spoken on a TED or TEDx stage. Jim has several talks and trainings in his repertoire and is available for keynote speeches as well. With his work as an author of of plays, comedy routines, articles, and his book, ‘Navigating Success’, he can create custom talks and trainings especially for your organization.

He studied acting in college then transitioned to stand-up comedy and toured the Pacific Northwest as a feature act. THEN after using hypnosis to take off over 60 lbs, ease his depression, and remake his life he decided to pursue another passion he’d had since a child, professional hypnotherapist and comedy stage hypnotist. He has since then helped thousands of people lose weight, quit smoking, sleep better, relax deeper, and much more and has hypnotized thousands of people on stage. He currently travels the US and routinely headlines the Northwest’s top comedy clubs.

Why Jim? Because he delivers content is a dynamic, heartfelt, and usually funny way.
