Trusted by Leading Brands Across Multiple Industries:
"The legacy that I’m building is not just impacting one’s life but it's having a butterfly effect on those who they know today and will meet tomorrow. I can't wait to see where the journey will take them to and celebrate their success every step of the way. ​​

​It's about the type of world we want to live in, the vision of a better world.
It's about you. It's about me. It's about all of us. One commitment to act. Be the one.

To be part of the change

James started Generation Success after the London riots. Rising from the riots came a desire to be part of the change. Driving by the fundamental belief, 'your career should not be defined by your birth' and witnessing the struggle that many of his contemporaries in law school faced in their careers, due to social or economic background James set about taken action.

He serves as an external member of the Education Board at City of London Corporation, independent member of the Student Association Board at Arden University, governor at Newham Collegiate and steering committee at Foundation for Education Development.
