I wanted to take this opportunity to thank James for his speech at the Aspire Leadership Conference in Chicago, Illinois. It was truly inspirational. His powerful story impacted each and every one of us in the room. He is incredible! It is so important for the world to hear his story and once people have, they will want him to tell it again and again! He is a change agent and powerful force in the world.

James was a presenter at a conference a recently attended, and while his presentation was not long, it was more impactful than any other speaker I heard in those three days. James' honesty about his history, and humble explanation of his triumphs have changed the way I see the world in many ways. I sought some guidance from him as a step-parent, and in less than 5 minutes, he gave me a completely new perspective to think about. I cannot recommend James highly enough.
