James has led an environmental consultancy as it grew from 15-50 staff; over five years turnover grew £2m to £12m. His expertise spans business culture, recruitment, employee engagement, leveraged systems, stakeholder mindset and board efficacy; he is a strategic innovator in these and many other areas of business. James is also chair of Deki, a micro-finance charity offering micro-loans in Africa. He believes in the duality of business to ‘make good, whilst doing good’.

GLOBAL NETWORK OF PIONEERING ENTREPRENEURS

Join a network of extremely talented people formed on travels from Necker to Knightsbridge.

One uniting principle is the desire to make good, whilst doing good. This duality of purpose keeps entrepreneurs grounded and connected to a path of greater fulfilment in life.

CONSULTATIVE SERVICES

I’ve been where you are right now, and I know how effective coaching from experienced mentors and Non-Executive Directors can shift your state.

Get some headspace and headroom. Years of working within effective boards and at times dysfunctional boards have helped me understand what good looks like and what it takes to go from a good board to a great board.

LEARNING BEGINS WHEN YOU

…are at the edge of our comfort zone. I am actively involved in: –

‘Exponential Tech’ – as an Abundance360 member I follow technology where the performance is doubling each year (e.g. Moore’s law). Examples include AI, VR/AR, drones and solar power.
‘Reinventing organisations’ – I believe the current paradigm of employment can stifle freedom of thought. We should be valued for our ideas and given the opportunity to be more creative, allowing the automation of mundane tasks.

INITIAL MENTORING SESSION

  • We talk about why you want to scale your business – what’s the end goal?
