About James

James Nathan

If you’re bit like most professional people, you will be excellent at what you do, but not always great or at selling what you do. It doesn’t matter if you have been in business for a few months or many years, for most of us selling and marketing our services is just plain hard.

Like you, I know that there is no such thing as a natural sales-person. The so called ‘Rain Makers’ were trained, coached and mentored, and with the right effort any one can join them.

“James has provided fantastic guidance in helping to rejuvenate and streamline our company’s pitching and sales processes, resulting in us winning more profitable business more often. A highly personable, commercially astute and passionate professional. I cannot recommend James highly enough”.

Max MacGillivray - MD – Redfox Executive Recruitment

"James is an excellent speaker. He combines a charismatic presence with thoughtful content to produce motivational presentations. His personality and humour added to his solid marketing knowledge make a powerful combination. It’s not often we have the same speaker twice to my CIPD group but we happily did with James."

Peter Thomson - CIPD

"Training with James was very enlightening. He covered a wide range of topics within the presentation umbrella that everyone could benefit from. His style of teaching was very relaxed and allowed for us all to engage with him. The team learnt a lot from the training session and were keen to start putting it into practice. I would not hesitate to recommend James to other companies."

Neil Edwards - VP Finance, Moneygram

"James brings a fresh and contemporary perspective to sales in a professional services context."
