“I recently met James at the Evolve Network where he presented a valuable keynote speech. I immediately resonated with one part of his talk which was entitled “Why People Fail” The point was about resilience. 
James delivered his speech in a very simple and effective way allowing his life experiences to shine through, without it being about him. I know several other people in the audience also had great take a ways too. I have since caught up with James and love his to the point coaching method which gains clarity with added support that a mentor would provide”.

“James did a great job with his presentation here in Savannah. It was well received by all team members”.

Bill Stankiewicz – President Savannah Supply Chain


“James came to speak at one of our team training events back in 2015. He was certainly one of the best speakers on personal/team advancement that we had heard! The direct style of high quality, actionable strategies that he taught had an immediate positive impact within our company. I was so impressed that I asked James to be part of a new series of speaking events I was planning”.

Ben Colley – Entrepreneur Tech Startup


“I recently attended the Elite Network event in Maidstone where James was the main speaker for the evening. My initial thoughts were ‘Oh god a golfer talking about other Golfers’. How wrong I was! I was totally engaged from the time James started to speak, his story was not about Golfers it was about understanding failure and success. The biggest thing that I took away though was not about me, it was my 18 year old daughter I had taken her along to the event that evening and when I looked over to her she was totally engaged and was writing down the formula to change your results/happiness/life formula, what she took away that night was a great lesson and to see her digest the information was amazing, so thank James for being an inspiration!”.
