James helped us run an all staff Away Day after 2 years of remote working. Many staff had never met and the event really brought us together. James listened to the brief and together we designed a fun and engaging programme which ensured we achieved our aims for the day. James was very easy to work with, efficient, accommodating and he is a skilled facilitator. Thank you for delivering a fantastic day James!
