“85% of your success is due to your ability to communicate.”

~ James Hurford • Author, the ‘How To’ series’

By becoming a better speaker you can enhance your reputation and open up countless opportunities.

It’s no coincidence that people who write well do well. Writing well is one of the best ways to advance your career.

The secret of all great success and achievement.

Your success depends on good communication.

James held workshops for our staff that were very well received. The knowledge he imparted was invaluable to our organisation.
