When James stepped off the plane at Leeds Bradford Airport at the age of 23 he thought he was going to have a career as a Chartered Accountant. How wrong could he have been…. now an international speaker, his journey and learnings will inspire whilst he teaches a healthy mix of confidence, skill and mindset to unlock your sales potential.
James works with a very simple, if not unusual philosophy – “Inside each of us is a Secret Superhero™, a superhero just waiting to get out. A feeling of confidence and power that we knew and loved as children which has sadly since disappeared.
As kids we learned new skills at an exceptional rate, we enjoyed and were excited by learning and the world around us was a wondrous place. But, as we grow into adults and take on the responsibilities involved, that feeling slowly dissipates. My passion is to help people find that feeling and inner strength again, to learn and to achieve far more than you thought you ever could.
The best business developers, marketers, and sales-people weren’t born with some special talent, they were trained, coached and mentored. And, anyone can join them.
