James is the Nowist


Romance Dating Scams Hit Record Highs

During COVID James discovered that 60 million people are on dating apps. In addition the FTC  report suggests that dating apps created opportunities for scammers. In the past five years, people have reported losing over $5 Billion to romance scams, more than any other FTC fraud category. The numbers skyrocketed recently and that’s only what was reported.

James collaborates with your organization to create a vision-NOW– where others aren’t looking and capture what others are not seeing by providing UNCOMMON, common sense.

James is not an expert. Experts are specialists for hire. As an advisor he provides selfless independence, balancing client devotion with objectivity, big-picture thinking and detachment.

James is a CSP. What is the CSP Designation? The Certified Speaking Professional (C.S.P.) from the National Speakers Association is an earned designation in the speaking industry. To earn the C.S.P, speakers must be able to prove quality of speaking with a track record of excellence over a long period of time. Client evaluations over the course of 5 years are involved in the process. Less than 17% of professional speakers have earned the designation.

James is also a CITE, CPIM, CPT, CPC, MIP, PCS and several other certifications. He brings a single source solution to your event as a Certified Speaking Professional with over 1,000 presentations and 16 books.

What will you do differently tomorrow that gets you better results than yesterday?

The fight to find new customers and employees and retain existing ones has become the biggest business challenge for many companies. Whether you are a trade or professional association trying to retain and recruit members, staffing a hotel, resort, or restaurant, or a C-Suite Executive fending off global competition you must shift ‘how you think’ not what you think.

Many will play catch-up to smaller and larger organizations when it comes to new product releases. Shift Happens and you may have fewer new customers and perhaps less loyal existing buyers? It’s time for you to focus on redesigning a low-friction customer experience, where there are minimal handoffs between people and departments.
