James Mapes

Speaker, Expert on the Psychology of Imagination for Extreme Success, Peak Performance Coach, Author: Quantum Leap Thinking and Imagine That.

An extraordinary keynote speaker for the uncertainty of the future, James Mapes defies categorization. When philanthropist/Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen asked Mapes how one person could do so much during his life, James’ answer was simple: “Because no one told me I couldn’t.”

A true Renaissance man, James is considered the world’s foremost authority on applied imagination, having studied human behavior for more than 30 years.

Since childhood, James wanted to make the impossible into the possible. This has led to a life-long fascination with the subconscious and the power of the imagination.
