Success Stories

“A friend recommended James as a coach; I was not disappointed. James is a wonderful mixture of integrity, compassion, listening, guidance and firm boundaries. And good fun too! I always come away from a session feeling re-energised and focused. He has a unique ability to get right to the nub of what the real issues and challenges are, allowing me to examine the impact of the options available. A session with James is an enjoyable, thought provoking experience, and I highly recommend getting a slot booked in with him. You won’t be disappointed, and will know you’ve got a great guy on your team.”

Catherine-Ann Reid
Entrepreneur CEO & Founder

“James helped me so much on my career journey; I cannot thank him enough! The process started by learning about project management, but soon progressed into discussing my broader career goals. James showed me how to realise my potential, providing me with the tools to achieve my ambitions. I’m still on my journey but feel well prepared for whatever may happen next. I strongly recommend James to anyone who wants a first class coach and a motivational inspirational speaker.”

Rachel Tilley
Laboratory Scientist and Study Director

“James has proven an excellent mentor. I reached out to him when I began my new sales role to help me bridge the gap between my current skill set and the capabilities required for the job. James was engaging, an excellent listener and allowed me to work out the answers for myself by providing support rather than spoon-feeding me information. He supported my professional and personal development and we have remained in touch. I would absolutely recommend working with James.”

Craig Penfold
Business Development Executive

“I recently caught up with James for some one-to-one coaching. James was excellent in challenging my thought process, which allowed me to objectively weigh up the pros and cons of the career journey I am currently on. By relaying my own words back to me and picking up on my pace, tone and pitch he was able to effectively challenge me to stay true to my desired path – even if the road ahead may prove a little bumpy! I would highly recommend James to anyone needing some business or career coaching, or even just a general nudge in the right direction.”

Jason Grant
Sports & Wellbeing Officer

“James contacted me in December 2018, after seeing my LinkedIn post, asking for advice about changing my career. He asked me to consider my strengths and what I wanted to achieve before we had a telephone chat. James gave me strong advice, and action points, which gave me a focus for my job search. He then continued to offer support and encouragement throughout the year, and made suggestions for me to tailor my CV to a specific role, and to focus on my transferable skills. I am now pleased to say that I am about to embark on a new journey in a new industry. I would highly recommend James and his services to any professional person looking to change their career.”
