"James is the classic multidimensional talent, that does not come around often. He is a creative and talented public speaker, a teacher and an inspirational, natural leader. There are no limits to his gifts."

I was very proud of you! As you walked on stage (at the World Championship of Public Speaking). I said to my neighbors, "You could tell he has more stage time and presence than the others."
Quite an accomplishment to get that far!
