James is a trailblazing and dynamic leading light in the independent television sector. He was one of the first CEOs in the business who understood how to formalize diversity and hardwire it into his business. As a result, he showed the sector just how commercially successful as well as culturally rewarding recruiting and developing a diverse workforce is. And beyond that he understands the value of having a healthy work culture in an industry not always known for this. I can’t think of anyone better placed to write about leadership.
