"This was very great presentation with key take aways! First feedbacks received are that presentation has been much appreciated! Everything ran perfectly! thank you James for his intervention and share with him first positive feedbacks we received." - Aurélie, Guerbet

"Jimmy,  thank you for the great speech you made last Tuesday. The energy you brought and the messages you sent were a great source of inspiration for all of us, really fitting our context & needs. You introduced yourself saying you are not a motivational speaker nor business speaker per say, nevertheless I must say you do bring amazing motivation & business insights/analogies, really well done.

I hope to have the chance to see you live on water somewhere in France or Spain in 2022 and wish you all the best for the SailGP adventure & maybe also next America’s cup who knows 😊?" -  Marc Guerbet
