James draws upon qualifications and a rich background of Hypnotherapy, NLP, Coaching, Mindfulness, Biofeedback, Psychometrics and the Insights Discovery Model of Behaviours. He confesses to an almost unhealthy fascination with Neuroscience and the Physiology of human performance
James’ fresh, personable and dynamic approach engages people quickly and brings immediacy to his delivery. His learning solutions have transformed team and leadership effectiveness across the private, public and not for profit sectors.
James’ more recent interventions include ‘It’s not all in your head – Noticing and Managing Stress’, ‘ ‘Building Mentally Tough Leaders’, ‘Managing High-Performance through Change’, ‘Effective Facilitation Skills’ and ‘Mindfulness – A New Generation of Leader’. He loves nothing more than listening to an organisation that has a true desire for positive change, understanding their needs, and designing and delivering a transformational learning experience in partnership.
When not transforming teams and leaders, James can usually be found with his young family enjoying the moment or finding new and exciting ways of pushing boundaries. James lives the virtue that life is about balance and keeping your eyes wide open.
When not at work James loves to keep active so he can enter various endurance events, including The Iron Man Triathlon series. James has three beautiful young children and an inspirational wife who teaches Pilates and enjoys regularly ‘pulling him up’ on his posture. As a family, James loves his trips away in their van and hiding away up a mountain in a bunker on their annual snowboarding holiday.

James receiving feedback on his facilitation style whilst working with Naim Audio
Claire Bond, Owner Bond Williams
“James is an amazing presenter & trainer, he has an ability to summon such great energy and engage a breadth of audiences. He never fails to impress me with his delivery and knowledge around leadership, inspiring teams, developing coaching cultures and personal impact. James always shows that there is such huge unrealised potential in our teams, ourselves and organisation. He can help you unlock potential, whilst inspiring both you and your people to improve performance and deliver even better results.”
Melanie Hartley Group Training and Development Manager AMS Medical Solutions
“James is a hugely engaging facilitator who adds so much energy and insight into his delivery that you can’t help but enjoy whatever topic he is delivering to you. His understanding of people types and styles means that without realising it he has managed to engage with everybody in the audience.”
“James has a lot of background knowledge that he builds into his work, and so the sessions he delivers are fun, energetic but hugely informative, and his pace and stamina are relentless.”
“I would have no hesitation in recommending James if you are looking for a facilitator in his area of expertise (which are many!)”
Rick Perry, Senior Manager for Change Management & Planning Dorset County Council
“I can’t thank you enough for your input at our conference. We had overwhelmingly positive feedback on the day and a key part of that was you setting the right tone at the start. Thanks again for helping make the day a success.”
Harvey Taylor, Owner at Fix My Problem Now
“James has an infectiously delightful personality. He brings a great sense of fun to his work whilst being a real professional. I thoroughly recommend him to anyone seeking personal and professional development.”
Sophie Haddon, Marketing Executive at WRAP
“James is a lively, engaging and down-to-earth presenter and facilitator. He delivered a fascinating session on personality profiling which our whole team enjoyed – he really got the best out of everyone. I’ve done various personality profiling sessions throughout my career but this was undoubtedly the best one. Would recommend without hesitation.”
Melanie Catmore. Havering College

I will be recommending that we do use you again in the future.
Excellent engaging session

Be mindful of how to perceive and deal with other personality types
Fantastic, can’t fault it!
Excellent training, highly recommended
It was brilliant! Will help to deal with people in a positive manner and not judge initially.
Enjoyable session would recommend to others”
