James Bargeron is a hgh performance coach and trainer

Growing up in London I set out in life not exactly sure what I wanted to do, except do something that excited me. It turned out to be a long career in oil and shipping.

I’ve always been ambitious, wanting to achieve and get to a higher level in life, business and sports. 

Over the years I’ve discovered that it doesn’t all happen by itself. We have to make a decision to make things happen. Something I was unaware of when I set out in the corporate world.


I spent 3 decades in international commerce, performing under pressure and in positions of leadership, both in London and the USA. I’ve worked with and for some of the most successful people and organisations globally and the one thing that that stood out amongst them all was the quality of their thinking, their mindset.

It hasn’t always been easy and it certainly hasn’t always been rosy.

Life Happened

I’ve made plenty of mistakes and had many failures. Life isn’t a straight line to success and I’ve experienced many of the challenges that accompany life’s failures.

With those challenges brought new discoveries: what I had been doing wrong, my strengths, what deficiencies I had and the things I needed to change and improve upon.

The biggest discovery, is that it’s not the size of the challenge, but simply how we get through it that matters. It’s our mindset, which is something we’re not taught in school and often not prepared for.

Why I do this

Having discovered the power of coaching, the power of our minds and what we can achieve, I realised it’s what was missing in my younger years, especially in my career.  I also realised the importance of having mentors we can trust and people who can help us get to another level.

I truly enjoy helping others  tap into their potential and discover what may be holding them back.

My clients say I am to the point and there’s no fluff, but I help them get results. I am totally focused and certain about what I do and I’m committed to helping my clients improve their results.

I’m a certified life coach and John Maxwell Leadership coach and trainer, who is recognised as the leading authority on leadership today by many organisations and publications.

If you have the desire, I believe I can help you.
