Authentic. Innovative. Personal. Enlightening.

That's what people say most often when they hear our founder present a keynote or workshop.

A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

Thank you for considering me as a speaker for your event.

My guess - you're looking for a presenter who offers a fresh perspective on meaningful connection or mental health at work.

You want someone who draws in listeners, makes them laugh, and inspires them to do different. I want that too!

As a go-go entrepreneur, I tend to bore easily. That's probably why I'm obsessed with keeping things fun and interesting.

I want your audience to walk away happier, motivated, and changed, so I teach easy-to-grasp concepts using humor, experientials, and storytelling - it's a very interactive performance.

If you like the sound of that, let's talk. Contact me HERE

  • Gain insight on how to bridge the gap in addressing mental health.

Summary:

Now is the time to challenge how we see mental health and address addiction in the workplace, with a commitment to do better.

So, the real question is: Why do we need to proactively address these issues anyway? Or, ok great, is this going to open a “can-of-worms” at my office?

In this honest, inspiring session, James will challenge you to rethink current policies, share how your organization is impacted by behavioral health, and demonstrate what we can do about it — because your employees deserve it, and your company needs it.

  • Learn the science behind safe environments and transformation.

Summary:

In this churn-and-burn, fast-paced world... why should you consider slowing downs and listening more? Conventional wisdom holds that when we don’t have all the answers, we’re not doing our job and look unqualified or unprofessional.

But, just maybe, could the opposite also be true?

Come to this exciting session to hear James reveal how innate listening (it’s more than you think) is indeed the answer to greater camaraderie, effective leadership, and better success.
