      James is one of those individuals that can lift any team to the next level. Her meticulous eye for detail and thorough understanding of hospitality management make him invaluable to his team and the company that is lucky enough to have him as an associate.

      I first worked with James, at the Enchoro Wildlife Camp. The skills I admired in James are the skills I try to incorporate in my job today. I hope to work with James again one day. I truly miss his passion and enthusiasm for the project and the team around him.

      I found James to be a very hospitable person, always jovial whenever going about his duties. James has earned respect from his juniors because of his open character and strictness in a tender way. I would highly recommend James in his area of expertize.

      James is a unique man who works as a deputy manager at the International Youth Hostel in Nairobi, Kenya. He looks young and beaming and talks happily with the young travelers. But he is also a very experienced man with more than 20 years in the business.

      I came back to stay in the hostel thanks to him and each time he was very attentive to our needs and flexible with us to our satisfaction. He promised me a safari tour on a tight budget and kept his word. The safari was with the best price I found and went on time without delays. The camp was good and the driver made his best to please us (we managed to see the croc catches the wildebeest, like in the National Geographic. it was amazing!- ask for Lawi...)

      James is the kind of rare business man who becomes your friend. He is not a "one off". Once you met him you will want to return again for the honesty, caring, the pleasure and friendship.
