Judi James, body language expert and star of the day, begins her lecture. Judi is amusing and vivacious but her message is serious, this is about powerful personal marketing.

London Portrait Magazine.

The amusing style of Judi James opened the afternoon session. Her light-hearted approach was one that everyone related to. She answered questions of how we should present ourselves in a positive and confident way and how signals can be positive or negative.

Esprit Magazine.

Working as a senior associate consultant Judi James has successfully delivered a wide range of training programmes to all sectors. Judi is also extremely dynamic and entertaining as a keynote speaker at our conference events, sharing the stage with speakers like Kriss Akabussi and Jack Black.

The Industrial Society.

Your presentation hit just the right mark & got the conference off to a flying start. It was everything we hoped for and more! Getting so many people up & onto their feet, taking part and laughing so much was an excellent way to get the message across. You also handled the Q&A brilliantly.

Amicus Group.

Your name has been mentioned in despatches more than any other speaker I can recall. The delegates both enjoyed your session and found it useful.

Moores Rowland Chartered Accountants.

Judi James, looking surprisingly perky despite having spent the last decade studying celebrity body language leads a posse of pundits…smart & hugely entertaining the programme happily lacks the repellently sneery tone of the standard celebrity clip show... Naked Celebrity teems with treats... viewers may also like to study how Judi James's own body language, together with the different way she is filmed, establishes her supremacy over the show's more subordinate commentators.

The Sunday Times.

We had excellent feedback about the whole day but particularly about you. The feedback reports were all scored from 1 – 5 and many of yours had 5+ so I think you've made another conquest.


Thanks for a fantastic training day. Not only did it leave the team buzzing on that night but this continued for the rest of the week
