Jamie isn't just familiar with the latest research, he produces it.
When Jamie speaks at your event you go straight to the source of some of the most cutting edge thoughts in management and psychology. But he doesn't give you a boring lecture of research studies, instead you participate in an exciting and mind-expanding discussion of possibilities and go on an arousing adventure. Even though he is a professor, the most common feedback people give Jamie after his sessions is "You don't speak like an academic", which he takes as a compliment.
