"I have known James for a number of years and it is with great pleasure that I provide this testimonial.

James breadth and depth of knowledge is second to none and he has proven to be invaluable to someone in my position tasked with dramatically growing a business in high-growth markets.

What stands out for me is James' ability to assist me and my colleagues with making rational, well informed decisions in a very brief time period. We have worked together in some very ambiguous environments and cultures and the level of trust established with James has been the foundation on which we have been able to succeed together.

I highly recommend James to any potential client of his."

Simon Griffiths Director of Finance

"I had the pleasure of knowing James Berkeley for over 15 years. James is an engaging, intelligent and creative business partner, who helps executives achieve unprecedented results.

My experience was

  • That I received valuable information
  • That I found total trust and candor in our conversations
  • He raises critical issues
  • He recommends other resources
  • He goes out of his way to assist beyond what was agreed

Equally I found that he is not afraid to take a public stand on important matters, creating an environment where we are equal partners. It is what I would call a true partnership when working and consulting with him."

Marjo Louw Country President

He is an excellent advisor, keeps a cool head and leverages the values in the business with new out-of-the-box approaches. He is a fantastic listener, and has the ability to find nerve points quickly hence his impact is quick and decisive."

"Developing a new brand or building a career in a competitive high-growth market such as Asia, requires outstanding performance in three areas: establishing credibility, building trusting relationships and rapid conversion of initial discussions into actual client relationships.

James Berkeley has been a tremendous boon to my personal and professional performance.

He has an ability to help me rapidly frame and articulate cleverly my own or my Company's value in the eyes of others, identify my highest potential opportunities, and accelerate the speed of reaching those people and those people reaching me.

His advice is pragmatic, ethical and based on a track record of success. He is an outstanding resource for an executive who wants to dramatically convert their marketing investment into increased revenue, profit, and personal growth."

Michael Sagild Director

"I absolutely trust you personally, and therefore professionally. Whereas I have never articulated such, I find you approach your business from an honesty / integrity foundation, not as a proactive strategy, therefore manipulative, but as part of your value system. And, that obviously begins from something irreplaceable called "character".    click here to view full testimonial
