He aims to leave the audience with:

- The desire to act to make change happen

- The courage and confidence to take personal risks in changing objectives, behaviours and communication

- Practical tools: what to do and how to recognise and overcome the personal barriers i.e. the 'Tiger'.

The Human Mind, Jim explains, is simultaneously our greatest asset and biggest liability in creating and adapting to change, as a tool formed over many millennia to favour the familiar over pioneering behaviours, creative tension and new uncertain outcomes. 

'Mission Impossible' only becomes a live possibility when the leaders and people across an organisation begin to understand, own and enjoy the mindset that creates purposeful change.

Jim has personally and successfully tested his own 'Taming Tigers' theories in high-risk sporting achievements; he became Britain's deepest freediver (having gone below the magic 100m barrier on a single breath of air) and trained himself to become a televised jockey in 12 months (at the outset he was 3 stone too heavy and could not ride)

Before founding Taming Tigers Limited (formerly “Optimise”), Jim practiced commercial law in the City of London and in a major IT company.

In 2008, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts in recognition of his business writing.
