James Osborn

Technical Leader, Mentor and Coach


I am an executive coach working with leaders in high scale digital environments, putting a premium on the emotional, personal and social side of technological ventures.

I work with leaders on a one-to-one basis, helping them to clarify and achieve their goals and to have the impact they want to have on the world.

I’ve worked with founders as they’ve launched new businesses, and empowered people in corporate roles to succeed in leadership transitions and take the next step in their careers.

If you are ready to succeed in your next challenge and to realise your impact on the world, then book a free initial conversation now.

Having worked with James Osborn for over a year now – I’d certainly encourage anyone looking for career coaching particularly around the software development world to take him up.

Head of Delivery – FTSE 100 Company


For over fifteen years, I’ve worked with high scale technology companies building high performing teams, providing mentoring in Agile practices and developing people in leadership positions.

I have strong experience in the full lifecycle of software product development starting from initial commercial feasibility, moving on to finding market fit and building to global scale.

My time in the industry gives me a deep understanding of a wide range of techniques that help drive quality in a delivery focused environment, in how to to manage the tensions of business as usual against enterprise defining projects, and in ways to navigate the complex uncertainties of large modern-day businesses.

I provide one-to-one coaching via personal or organisational engagements. I work with leaders in all industries, with a particular focus in fast moving digital or technical environments.

My strengths are in helping people understand the difficult boundaries of technology and commercial interaction and in developing their leadership potential with emotional maturity.

I’m especially excited to coach people who are starting out or growing their business, senior corporate leaders and those who are going through a leadership transition.

Our first 30 minute conversation will be totally free of charge as we get to know each other and develop a plan to best ensure your success.

Schedule an initial conversation to share your current situation and opportunities, and we’ll put together a plan to help you achieve your goals.

I can provide consultations via video conferencing or face-to-face in Central London.
