James' cllient testimonials

"I attended the LinkedIn workshop ran by James, which was a great use of a couple of hours in order to learn how to optimise my LinkedIn profile. I had previously attended a good course at Penna, this course with James reinforced, enhanced and built on what I had learnt previously.”

“James provides useful and insightful advice for executives looking to enhance their networking and job search capabilities. He is a straightforward and very enthusiastic person with an excellent ability to get his training across in a thoroughly motivational way.”

“James, from our first meeting was the consumate professional. His help and input was so influential in me finding not just a job but 'the' job. He is an outstanding communicator and with his warm and affable nature made me feel really comfortable in his presence. I cannot praise him and his team highly enough.”
