Jim Lawless is one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers. Over half a million people on five continents have been entertained and inspired by Jim’s presentations and many more by his bestselling book Taming Tigers. As CEO of The Velocity Corporation, Jim has advised companies globally on creating organisational Cultural Change and elite teams. With his team, has implemented successful change programmes in companies including Apple, Barclaycard, Atos, Axa, BT, Aramark, Skrill Group and Badminton England. He insists on testing principles of change on himself before advising others. He used Taming Tigers to become Britain’s Deepest Freediver, the first Briton to dive below the magic 100m barrier on a single breath of air. In response to an audience challenge, he proved “Taming Tigers” by becoming a jockey in 12 months. At the outset he was 3 stone (20kg) too heavy and could
not ride. These adventures - and the lessons he learned - bring him and his methodology immediate credibility with audiences on all continents.
