Profile:Jim Rees is interested in what’s possible. Having flown around the world competing in some of the toughest races on the planet, Jim has a very clear idea of what is possible. Drawing from his personal, sporting and professional career, Jim has seen and experienced perceived impossibilities turn into reality. From this, he absolutely knows that the majority of us are barely scratching the surface of our potential, whether that’s on the tennis court or in the boardroom. On a one-to-one level, Jim has an uncanny way of getting to the core of who you are. With your permission, he works with you to uncover those beliefs that may well be preventing you from achieving your absolute max in ALL that you do. His sessions are deep and challenging – this reflects his philosophy that “everyone is built for greatness”.

“I really do need to thank you Jim. Your coaching last year was profound and effective. You taught me to look at myself and realise that in order for others to change I had first to change myself. This was a humbling experience but one that has left me wiser and with a much higher level of self confidence. It was incredibly difficult for me to take the first step. Making the first move and changing myself rather than expecting my direct reports to change was counter intuitive. The illusion I was under is now very clear. I do not exaggerate this life learning.”
(Peter Harding CEO of a major foods & drinks manufacturer, Ireland)
