Testimonials

I work with people across the leadership spectrum, from company founders to those just taking their first steps into leadership roles. Read through some of these stories of inspiring change, and book a 30 minute call to kick start your own journey and reach your full potential.

In this year of change and uncertainty, James has been a valuable sounding board, ‘critical friend’ and mentor, as I embark on my start-up journey.

James is a great listener who has enabled me to feel heard and understood. His down-to-earth, supportive approach in exploring options and giving feedback has provided much needed clarity on the next steps—and jumps—towards achieving my goals.

James’ commercial experience and professional background—with particular expertise in tech—has been incredibly beneficial. Having worked with him over the past six months, I have seen a significant amount of progress across my business and how I articulate its services.

I am energised after a session with James and would thoroughly recommend him as a Coach.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed coaching with James. Our sessions are always very productive and I appreciate how much effort James puts into our coaching both before the sessions and in the follow-ups. During the sessions themselves, I’ve particularly enjoyed the growth-focused perspectives that James brings. He listens and responds very well to my short term and long term goals and often shares interesting insight that shifts my thinking and expands my perspective.

Areas that we’ve discussed include: ideation and product testing in startups with a digital focus, productivity and time-boxing. With each session I come out with more knowledge and confidence. I feel motivated for the weeks ahead and more equipped for the long term also.

James’ analytical thinking, professional background and listening skills make for a wonderful experience and I’d wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.
