James was the star at our university’s professional development conference!  His keynote address to our alumni was extremely well received and was the highlight of an entire day of great content.  James has just the right touch and is the right person to speak on personal branding, diversity, and inclusion.  He’s funny, brave, well-versed, and has all the makings of a great presenter.  I highly recommend James for any speaking engagement.

Your presentation was thought-provoking and candidly refreshing. In particular, your remarks on how essential it is for organizations to recognize the impact of unconscious bias on organizational behavior and employee productivity and engagement resonated with the audience. Participants left the presentation with a heightened sense of introspection; a clearer understanding of the effect unconscious bias often plays in day-to-day decision making; and vigilant to identify and combat unconscious bias in their workplace.  You really impressed us; I, of course, was confident you would.

As the southern region of the firm pulled together a think tank session of D&I experts, James was instrumental in identifying several area executives who participated.  He is personable, flexible, responsive and gets things done.  His expertise in D&I also enhanced the think tank conversations bringing them to another level.  He is a pleasure and a networked force to be reckoned with.

James facilitated a panel where I participated.  He made sure we, as the panelists, were understanding of the topic, leading several prep calls before the discussion, facilitating with a keen eye for bringing new thoughts, ideas and suggestions to the table.  I truly enjoyed working with him.
