Client feedback

James has had the pleasure of working with a very wide variety of clients around the UK and overseas, here are a few things some of them have said after working with him.

Feedback on the session was great, and it really got the leaders thinking, which was exactly the aim. I’ll certainly recommend you.

Peter Robbins - Local Government Association

Thank you for such an entertaining and informative afternoon on such a crucial topic.

Kevin Burnett - B and NES NAHT

Brilliant! You are just the ticket James. On behalf of all our colleagues, may I extend our thanks to you for a heart felt and moving after dinner speach.

Margaret Clarke - Head of Training and Development at REAch2 Trust

James is an inspirational speaker; He communicates with a rare honesty, humour and humility. He carries the authenticity of someone who has really been there, at the sharp end, which leaves you reflecting on his message long after the event.

Richard Gerver - International speaker, author and broadcaster

It was really insightful and helpful to hear from someone who has actually been there.

Janet Watson - GAZPROM Energy

We wanted James to kick off our annual user conference with a presentation that would inspire the audience – and boy did he deliver! His anecdotes came from a place of experience, and the humour with which he delivered the session made the serious message easily digestible. Many of our delegates indicated that James was the highlight of the conference, and we would have no hesitation in booking him again.

David Edwards, Marketing Business Partner, Tribal Group

I recently heard James give a presentation to a group of head teachers. James delivers a difficult but important message with empathy, humour and authority... his message is a powerful one that resonates strongly with his audience

Bernadette Hunter, Past President NAHT

James has an empathetic instinctive understanding of the pressures facing school leaders and a personal journey of experience through the challenges those pressures can create. He is an authentic and engaging speaker who combines practical tips for survival in the world of school leadership with a narrative of his own difficulties with stress and how he overcame them.

David Carne, Executive Business Manager, Cardinal Griffin Catholic College. NAHT National Conference Liverpool

James' delivery was excellent, engaging, funny and thought provoking. Our group of Macmillan staff left on a high, inspired and reinvigorated to take on board life’s challenges. I would have no hesitation in recommending James for an inspirational leadership presentation.

Genevieve Murphy, Macmillan Learning & Development Manager

Thank you, James, for the inspiring and brave opening speech at the NAHT Conference in Liverpool. Your words gave me the strength to carry on and to think of how I can change things to benefit me as an individual.

Jamile Sherrick, Head of School, Gosberton Academy, The Phoenix Family of Schools
