"James is a collaborative partner with a great deal of expertise in global cultures and implications when creating a concept and taking it through to implementation. James worked with myself and a Global team in the concept-implementation stages of a Global Learning Curriculum initiative. His contributions were specifically in managing the process by which the team created the concept and formulated an implementation plan. In this role, James provided timely insight and coaching on how to account for Global nuances and cultural considerations. In addition, he facilitated team meetings and presentations to management teams on the agreement to our concept and the considerations & support required to implement these concepts in a timely, effective manner. I truly valued and appreciated the partnership with James and the opportunity to have him as part of a high performing team that executed an initiative that was the first of many that would follow. We broke new ground for our organization and today are still seeing the implications of this work on other Global learning curriculum initiatives."

"James is a great professional who has a strong passion to help people develop. He was always willing to share his knowledge, ideas and valuable thoughts in various aspects of learning and development. James is a role model and I have learned a great deal from James.
James is a well-respected senior leader and colleague who managed his team effectively with a good balance of empowerment and mentoring. He has successfully led his EUCANAfME team to implement numerous people development solutions in the areas of leadership and field force development. These initiatives have become ‘Best Practices’ which were shared across Asia Pacific region. I truly believe that his expertise, holistic views and in-depth knowledge in ‘learning and development’ particularly in the field of leadership development, field force effectiveness and coaching will be invaluable to anyone who partners with him."
