James is a motivational speaker, performance coach, mentor and wellbeing consultant within the Market Research and FMCG industry
In early 2019, I was a Sales Director at an industry-leading survey technology and panel company. I had been there for 10 years and, in that time, had grown my part of the business from virtually zero to over £6 million in annual revenue. I headed up the leading sales team in Europe and had created lasting, highly profitable client relationships with household name brands. I was, by all accounts, very successful.
In March of that year I suffered a completely unexpected and almost total mental and physical breakdown, following a severe and very public anxiety attack. I spent the remainder of the year on leave.
Through regular therapy, I began to recover and understand why this had happened at what seemed, at the time, the peak of my career.
I also learned that I wasn’t the only one suffering a similar experience.
Since leaving that role, I have retrained as a certified professional Coach. I work as a motivational speaker, performance coach, mentor and wellbeing consultant within the Market Research and FMCG industry.

Coaching & Training
“We originally booked James with the viewpoint that it would resonate for a handful of people who
needed it but I’d say throughout the rest of the day over half the team came to me with a comment,
take away, anecdote or follow on request. It was a fantastic session and the amount of yourself you
put into the session really carries the message home.”
“Listening to James telling his story was utterly compelling and reassuring. But also scary at how
easily we can feel like we are on top of the world, only to discover that we have been a frog in a bath
of simmering water all along. Never has there been a more important time to listen, talk and be true
to yourself than now. Thank you James”
