One of my favourite sayings is “you’ve got to learn more to earn more.” I have run training courses internationally for local groups. I’ve also presented to audiences of over one hundred people.

I have also lectured to a class of entrepreneurs at St Mary’s University, Twickenham.

Throughout 2011 & 2012 I created and delivered a presentation on Social Networking for Business. In August 2012, my presentation ranked as one of the most shared on SlideShare:

James McBrearty presenting to business owners
My 'More time & money via social media' presentation is the top one on LinkedIn!

I also took my presentation to Spain, and delivered it to the local business networking groups in Puerto Banus, Marbella:

Hotel Pyr, Puerto Banus, Marbella, Spain

James visited my group and delivered a presentation on Social Media and how it can be used to influence and grow your own business. It was very informative, positive and thought-provoking. I can thoroughly recommend James as a visiting speaker on this subject. All local groups should ask James to present to them – he has great levels of knowledge on this topic, combined with his enthusiasm.
