"I have known James for a number of years having previously mentored him as a former student, worked with him more recently as a colleague and consider him a good friend. It goes without saying that as a former alumnus of the LJMU School of Sport and Exercise Science, James understands the key factors of ‘what it takes to win’ in the field of sporting performance. James is an excellent practitioner and given his unique personality, creates instant rapport with all the athletes he works with. His previous exploits and novel understanding of how to operate in the high performance environment, make him an obvious choice for those who need support to engineer winning performances"
