Performance under pressure

“I attend numerous conferences, and James Pearce’s talk on communications is the single standout speech from all that I have ever seen. It’s not often that you leave a conference with your mind opened up to a whole new way of thinking. This is going to improve the way that I communicate with clients and colleagues, and I am so excited to be able to put some of these ideas into practice.”
