Hi, I'm James. I am married to my wife Louise, have one young daughter called Sophie, a cat called Ed and we live in Surrey.
My professional background is in retail where I began as a humble cashier in a DIY business. I was young but keen to work hard and progress. I went on to work as a manager for a famous toy retailer and following that, a leading luxury department store where I am now as a General Manager. In my current role I look after a £25 million turnover store and am accountable for a team of 300 people.
Over the years, I have always favoured a coaching style of leadership which has led to my passion of seeing people achieve their goals and aspirations in the workplace.
I too have struggled with mental health and have bounced back from it, I'd encourage you to check my blog out on how I battled mental health to find out more.
I trained with the ICF accredited The Coaching Academy as a Personal Performance Coach and achieved a distinction after working with 9 clients.
I have fallen in love with coaching and feel an enormous sense of pride when I see my clients progressing and reaching their targets.
