“When I’m on the road I’m all about business, so I try and keep my travel period to 4 days or less so that I can see my family within the week regardless” – Jim Cressman
We had a great chat about the how the quarantine lockdown has affected his business, how he stays in shape while traveling and the importance of family and staying in touch even when he’s on the road.

Started in 2011, by Jim Cressman, with the vision to form a one of a kind artist services company – dedicated to facilitating the unconquerable artistic spirit. His past had prepared him for this moment, at 16 he convinced a radio station to allow him to do an on-air shift, later a stint in pro boxing, and by 30 he had convinced the top promoter in Canada to partner with him. Never being one to succumb to a challenge, Cressman developed his 360 model with fervor and evolved his portfolio further by leading Invictus Entertainment into Pollstar’s Top 100 Promoters in the World list.
