"I chose to work with James as a Sales Mentor as, from the first time we met, I could tell he had an edge. I loved his energy, knowledge (and the way he could quickly apply that knowledge), and desire to make a difference in our business. We have built a successful and growing business which is loved by those we work with. Our desire is to grow and develop even more, so that we can work with more companies to release the creative potential of their people. We wanted to bring in a Sales Mentor to give us the insights and knowledge to optimise our growth. What we found in James was someone who could do all that, but what I love most about working with James is how he is totally committed to helping us to achieve our goals. He genuinely cares about our success. He is responsive, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable about the ways to approach conversations with prospects. He provides materials which we can make use of within our sales conversations and has added so much to our approach already. We made a good decision in choosing to work with James and I know the next 6 months are going to be fun as well as incredibly useful. I certainly would have no hesitation in recommending James as a Sales Mentor to any growing service business that has a desire to get even better results!"

“Great sales training session with James, he has a great technique in filtering out the feedback and really engaged the team in a fun and educational way. The session flowed naturally with lots of thought provoking learnings. Everyone took something away from the session that they can implement and reap the rewards from.”

“I first met James at the BETA Youth Travel Workshop where he kick started the day with a punchy sales session. His energy and know-how shone through again during a workshop he held with my sales team. He gave the whole team, myself included, great sales strategy ideas and helped us tackle our prospect's primary objections. The service James provides is one that all businesses can benefit from to improve their sales success!”

“James was referred to us as a Sales Mentor and we loved working with him. He got to know our business and understand more about what we do quickly and the day we spent with him flew by! My team and I got so many great insights from James, he really does understand sales, the sales process and how prospects buy. He also understands that for a business like ours its about supporting more of our clients to excel. The day we had was incredibly valuable for us as a business and James delivered on the materials and plans he promised he would – they were superb. If you are a good business who are growing but who want to grow even faster then I would certainly recommend you book James for a day. He is knowledgeable, engaging and his passion, energy and enthusiastic approach engaged us all and it left us all looking forward to the next step in our business journey.”

James’s enthusiasm, desire and positivity to help you succeed is infectious.”

'James came in and held a sales workshop and training session with my event sales team at The Ashmolean Museum and he was fantastic to work with. He was captivating and inclusive and ensured that every member of our team was involved and had their questions answered. The session flew by and the team loved the ideas and suggestions James had to deal with around lead qualifying, prospecting and handling objections! I would highly recommend James for any other organisation that has a sales team who want to improve their sales skills to get better results!'

"I have loved every minute of working with James. His passion and energy to help my business grow has been invaluable, but most importantly he has a wealth of sales knowledge and experience which is helping me engage more effectively with my prospects! If you want to short cut the sales process then get James involved in what you are doing!"

"I have worked with James for over a year now and he has helped our business immensely. James has helped us get clarity about our product and target market offering and then has worked with us to develop a sales and marketing strategy which has delivered some incredible results. He has a clear understanding of the buying process that prospects go through and he has allowed us to build a very strong position within our marketplace. James has a tremendous amount of business acumen and knowledge but presents ideas in a simple and clear way which makes sense. The key factor which makes James very different to other advisors and mentors that I have worked with is his enthusiasm and friendly approach. He has a real want for us to succeed and his passion and energy for our success comes across every time we work with him. I would strongly recommend him to other organisations who want to grow their business and achieve sales targets."
