“James was our keynote speaker at the Institution of Civil Engineers’ London Region Annual General Meeting in October 2018.  I had followed his successes in twice winning the Transcontinental Europe cycle race.  James took the time to understand that he was speaking to people from predominantly technical backgrounds.  He was an inspiring and engaging speaker, conveying the sheer determination, resilience and planning required for his endurance cycle races.   James has great energy, is a talented storyteller and enjoyable to listen to.  If you’re looking for someone to provide inspiration with tales of triumphs and adversity, I would highly recommend him.  James’ talk was warmly received and we ran out of time to deal with the number of questions.  We hope he will come back and inspire us with the tales of his next adventure!”
