“I have been co-delivering workshops and doing interviews with Jim and had an amazing time during it. Jim has such a deep knowledge of the human behaviour and expertise on how to help people change it. Our interviews and workshops have mainly been around human mind as I am a neuroscientist and I was genuinely impressed with Jim's knowledge about the human brain and deep interest in this area. I have no doubt that with his profound understanding behaviour and the root causes of it and enormous experience in NLP, hypnotherapy and other techniques Jim can handle any case of changing human behaviour and pioneer new techniques of how to do it. I also believe Jim is a great researcher and can achieve lots in this area too. It is always a real joy and bunch of insight working with him so would highly recommend it to anyone!”
