James Berridge
They're my advisor  •  Director, JNB Films Ltd. Previously Promo director, 4Creative.
In terms of his thought process and what is possible to achieve, James has absolutely no boundaries - that is the making of a great entrepre ... neur.
Karin Gråbæk
We worked together  •  Freelance journalist and author, My Word House and Author, Gyldendal and Gads Forlag.
James has a brilliant way of using his analytic and insightful trend tracking skills and coming up with innovative ideas. His Suffocation id ... ea, book and talks are not just about analysing a value shift in society, his ideas and his fun and clever ways of communicating have the power to inspire millions to change the way we live, making us and the world happier and healthier.
George Collings
We worked together  •  Previously Senior Planner, Grey. Previously Senior Planner, R/GA.
Jacqueline Bosscher
They're my school  •  Interior Designer, THE DESIGN COMMISSION. Previously Colour consultant, THE COLOUR COMMISSION.
James is a creative, intelligent, lateral thinker. He has a huge amount of energy and a thirst for life, ideas and experience. He challenges ... the status quo, he looks at every side of an idea or issue and is genuinely interested in other people and what makes them tick. I have known James since we were young and it was always clear that this intelligence and thirst for life and knowledge were going to continually drive him to set and reach high goals. He has successfully worked alone as a writer and journalist, researching issues in depth, but has also succeeded in working collaboratively across fields, sharing and realising ideas and strategies and creating a large professional network. The success of his first book lies with his ability to communicate, in prose, complex issues in an incredibly accessible way, and to turn the book into a call to action. His public speaking around the ideas in the book inspires and excites. James beats his own path to the sound of his own drum but invites everyone along for the party.
