Talking Points

How to Succeed in a World of Limited Resources

Global Megatrends and the Circular Economy

"What an incredible young man" - The words on many lips after hearing James speak at our recent business seminar. James brief overview of history through to his thoughts of where we are heading in the future was entertaining, thought provoking and challenging. He revelled in the question time drawing on a wide range of quotes from past world leaders to demonstrate a point or support his arguments. Now we wait to see if his thoughts on the future trends are as close to the mark as his recall of history!

Toyota Australia Limited

His preparation for the speech was excellent. It was just right for the audience, who thought he was great.

Macquarie Institute for Innovation

James was a delight - the plenary in which he was the central panellist was considered one of the best in several years for our annual convention. He met his part of the session aims in an exemplary and enthusiastic way - and was most conscious of meeting our expectations in the process. He is an accomplished, highly intelligent and warm individual who, from a personal perspective, was a great pleasure to meet.

WA Local Government Association

Working with James was an absolute pleasure. He grabbed onto our objectives for our Professional Development session quickly and made excellent suggestions that improved its overall impact. James describes himself as a 'nerd', however to go with his 'nerdiness' he has excellent interpersonal skills that engaged our people making the session, technically, academically and personally the best professional development session we have run to date. James had an incredible impact upon the attendees and feedback was absolutely terrific. I've included a sample of comments I've received below... - Just a quick note to say thanks for the session on innovation today. - Hands down that was one of the best presentations I have ever witnessed. - The content was really thought provoking. - I loved it!
