James has proved to be an outstanding asset to Hard Hat both in terms of his business insight, organisation and presentation skills. He is a highly effective agent for achieving positive change in the businesses we have worked with together.
James and I have been co-presenting some workshops for Business Link Kent. He has a wealth of experience to bring to the workshops and it never ceases to amaze me how he can tap his experience for a suitable response to every question that gets asked.
He is continually refining the course material to improve on it over time and we've had some fantastic testimonials as a result: "I felt very comfortable with people on the course; A very constructive refresher on what I should be doing; very clear speakers and very approachable."
I have only known James for a short time, however each time we meet, he seems to have the ability to stimulate my creativity, he does this by listening and asking questions in such a way that spark those eureka moments. If you are looking for a mentor who will help you grow your business then I recommend you give James a call. His knowledge of LinkedIn makes him a valuable guy to know.
I have just joined a great networking group which teaches you how to get the most out of LinkedIn called netLinked.
The group is run by James Davey, who gives a one hour workshop each session explaining a different aspect of LinkedIn. I love the group because we really get to know each other and our businesses. Also James is great with his knowledge, and is able to answer everyone's own personal questions about their business, and is generous in giving advice and support.
I would thoroughly recommend James specifically for the netLinked course and group he runs in Ipswich as it is an excellent 8 module course which will give you a thorough understanding of how and why to use LinkedIn in your business, and also more generally as a thoroughly nice guy, expert in his field, and very personable and helpful.
I have known James since he joined the netLinked team at the end of 2010 as a Local Group Executive and started up the netLinked Ipswich group. Since then his contribution to both the quality and building of the group has been immense.
During that time I have seen James’s presentation about Hard Hat and their unique ‘Business Builder’ model several times and I'm always impressed by his ability to leave you with the question ‘why aren’t we using that’?
Having witnessed his commitment and sheer professionalism first-hand and one of the finest business minds that I have encountered, it leads you to understand why he is so successful.
Therefore whether it is a distressed company looking for turnaround help or a profitable businesses looking for safe, sustainable growth, I have no hesitation in recommending that you talk to and engage James Davey to help you with your business
Thanks James, I really enjoyed your NetLinked event last week. It was value for money and I discovered new ways to work with LinkedIn. I would recommend this educational business network to anyone.
We are currently working with James and I have been in business 10 years and thought I knew what I was doing. Now James is not the sort of guy that will (excuse the word but) mollycoddle you, He tells it as it is and doesn't mix his words. I have found working with James has opened my eyes in the last 3 months and the sound advice he gives will make a difference in anyone's business.
I have worked closely with James during my time at Business Link on several business development training programmes entitled Planning for Growth.
Working alongside James since 2009, he proved from the outset to be an extremely reliable, professional and expert supplier with a vast amount of knowledge and experience in his field. James has been a huge support to our attending delegates and also to fellow colleagues with building and maintaining key relationships.
Should the occasion arise within future employment, I would welcome the opportunity to work with James again.
I joined the netLinked Ipswich group in April 2011 and James has made me feel welcome at every meeting. James runs and manages a successful group and always encourages useful discussions between the members. James is an asset to the netLinked franchise and a great exponent of the benefits of LinkedIn.
I was stuck mentally and despite much support from people around me I remained stuck UNTIL I met James and he was the only person who managed to unstick me... still not sure quite how he did it but he did... I will be eternally grateful... thank you James
