What Others Are Saying


Dynamic presenter, very informative, key leadership information for implementation in project management that I can apply immediately. Very insightful & worthwhile. Can be practically applied to my work scenarios.”

Initially we brought James in for just one class that happened to be Leadership Skills for Project Managers. The class had such a profound impact on my staff that we rolled it out globally to all IT project managers and then added other classes. Usually people have to be pressured to attend training but James’s classes essentially sell out when scheduled. Most importantly, I see increased proficiency among my project managers that translates to bottom line results.”
