“James was one of my all-time favorite speakers at the Subscription Site Summit 2012. He has an unusually broad understanding of how to build a content business — from branding to licensing to the nitty gritty of conversion rate and retention optimization. Most people can only be good at one angle of this,; but, James is the total package. I look forward to hearing him speak again someday soon.” – Anne Holland (Subscription Site Insider Summit)

“We were pleased and thrilled to have James speak at Subscription Site Insider’s April Summit in San Francisco. Multiple attendees told me they appreciated his insightful advice about branding, payment processing and technology for the subscription website business. In addition, his informative but laid-back style made him a charismatic speaker, while his natural curiosity made him a valued participant in many session discussions.” – Minal Bopaiah (Subscription Site Insider Summit)
