In detail

A physics graduate and author of several books, James is Professor of Forecasting and Innovation at De Montfort University, Leicester. In the 1980s he co-directed Britain's first major study into the future of e-commerce ('teleshopping' in those days). He then moved to the Henley Centre, Britain's best-known think-tank on EU markets, where he built up the firm's forecasting on the broader future of IT and proposed, in 1992, that the Internet be delivered over TV.

What he offers you

He offers a highly visual, very witty, but deadly serious alternative to myths about the future of work, consumers and technology. An inspirational opponent of politically correct trends in management and beyond, he spells out what to do and how to do it in controversial but deeply insightful style.

How he presents

James is a master at explaining The Big Picture in a way that convincingly suggests What To Do Next. Reinforced by brilliant visuals, he first makes complex issues simple and then makes them sizzle.

Languages

He presents in English.
