"I first met James Carlopio approximately 3-4 months ago, and was immediately impressed by his insight and rational approach on many subjects.

As an operator of what is presently a small business, I have found that not having a partner to ‘bounce ideas off” can sometimes bring about hesitation & procrastination. Consequently, when the opportunity presented itself, without hesitation, I engaged James as my business coach and mentor. In those few short weeks I have noticed an improvement in my approach to a number of matters. Additionally, I find myself looking forward to each session we have together, knowing that my ‘course’ forward is enriched by my new found guide."

"James is a knowledgeable and experienced trainer. He used his past experience to demonstrate the concepts. I will suggest my husband and friends attend because this brings positive impacts to our lives!"

Au-Young Kim Man, Manager, Application Integration Team

"Working with James Carlopio recently was amazing and I can highly recommend his coaching skills. His ability to encourage and guide you, whilst allowing you to find the solution(s) to the issues yourself, is enlightening and empowering.

As a Psychologist myself, it is often difficult to self-analyse and having James’ skillset of being perceptive and sharp yet approachable was invaluable in assisting me to gain focus on where I wanted my career to transition to. James’ extensive experience is clearly evident through his everyday demeanour, execution and delivery.

I would highly recommend James’ coaching or counselling skills. If you require guidance or assistance, either personally or for business, I would encourage you to contact James directly."
