"We recently asked James Knight to be our key-note speaker at our annual conference.

He completely understood our brief and tailored his talk to address the challenges facing our business. His talk was engaging and relevant to our company's direction, while inspiring us with new & creative ways of viewing the opportunities ahead of us.

I look forward to working with James again and I recommend him to any business looking for someone to engage your team in thinking differently about the challenges your business is facing."

Nick Chronis,  Seven Miles Coffee Roasters, Australia.

"James combined a superb use of language, without once appearing to refer to any notes, with an almost theatrical style of delivery. He seemed to have everyone in the room mesmerized with his concepts, detail and deep insights into his topic. It was one of the most memorable talks I have attended."


John North, Athenaeum Club, Melbourne

"I wanted to thank you once again for the speech you gave last night.

It was truly inspirational and I hope transformative for the members of our school."

"I had James with Year 12. He was very natural and comfortable with the boys-especially chatting informally with them before his session formally started. As a speaker, he was animated and engaging. He had lots of stories and some interesting props, and he got many boys out of their seats and involved in the session. Great!"

Newington College Teacher.

"James Knight has a gift for storytelling. Our adult audience laughed...we cried...and we gave a standing ovation. We wanted more."
