This involved the facilitation of a full day training workshop in 6 regions over 2 weeks to approximately 100 business advisors. During the preparation for the workshops James was very accommodating of our needs, practical in his approach and he was focused at all times on achieving a great outcome for our attendees. James brought a great energy to his workshops and ensured he was constantly innovating and refining his approach to suit the audience. The response we received overall from attendees was fantastic!
