James was exceptional. The content he delivered was extremely beneficial to our organization, however, it was the delivery method that made the day even more valuable. James engaged the entire group, he got them thinking about the way they work and how they can individually and as a group take the next step. Pickstar as a whole was a seamless experience. Booking of a star was simple and the follow-up communication from the team created certainty and confidence.
