I was fortunate to have attended James Mapes first Master Class. It was an incredible experience. James is my mentor, teacher, colleague and friend. His insights have brought my work to a higher level and have enhanced my quality of life. After his two-day Master Class, I gained clarity in my thoughts and goals for the future. Don’t miss this rare opportunity. It will change your life!

Just get yourself there. The guy has been doing this for over 40 years. You’ll learn more from him in an hour then some “gurus” who you spend 14 days with.

Trust me on this….James is fantastic! He reached the same level in corporate speaking using hypnosis that I did. There were only 3 of us and James was one of them. We created the first Corporate Masterclass together. He is a true Gedi Master of Corporate speaking and one of the nicest people on the planet. He will definitely add to your knowledge base and help you polish your style. But in addition, he is an accomplished actor and performer. I whole-heartedly endorse his workshop. He is just great!!
