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.

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.
