Testimonials

“James was a keynote speaker during UBS Global Health Week. He did captivate the audience from the first minute of his presentation till the very end. I found James a great speaker: as we all know it’s not that easy to keep attention of the audience the whole time of the presentation, but James did it. His speech was dynamic and passionate.
It was not only the speech that was amazing, but the fact that within an hour of his presentation, James managed to inspire a lot of people to make a change in their lives, or at least, to consider making a change.

I highly recommend James Hewitt as a speaker if you want to bring a change and innovation in your business.”
