“We had a training with James focused on Headhunting tailor-made for our recruitment needs at KBC SSC! He managed to make all 10 of us reflect on his thoughts, analyze our daily responsibilities and the way we approach these, which is great success! He created a safe space where we shared our concerns, weak points and needs of improvement! I have a lot of take away’s from this training. I would definitely recommend James to any company be it a large corporate structure with fast growing teams or a smaller company! “
