He’s an amazing creativity keynoter, an expert in his field. Not only does James know his stuff, but he is so pragmatic and practical that it makes working with him easy and immediately productive. But, most importantly, James is a genuinely good person – authentic and real – and has such a can-do, supportive spirit. If you have the opportunity to hire James, don’t pass it up! You won’t regret it.
