testimonials

“I’ve invited Jamil to speak in front of various International teams and every time, he has delivered a thought provoking, energetic and fun performance that has really inspired the audience. For me, the single best outcome, is that after the session people are thinking; thinking about how they feel and how they act in everyday situations and also answering their own “why’ question. Now my teams are better equipped to conquer the challenges ahead and are all seeking to achieve.”

“I was privileged to attend a session Jamil ran on the psychology of high performance. He is an excellent speaker and has the special ability to connect deeply with his audience through an informal, fun and engaging style. His message about the ingredients of high performance is profound but he delivers it through stories which makes it highly accessible and relevant. I have heard many different speakers over the years and would not hesitate to recommend Jamil as one of the very best I’ve come across.”
