About Us

Being genuinely passionate about the development of people and, therefore business, Joe McNicholas founded JAMES Development in 2017 after 20 years in the FTSE 100 & 250 arena developing people at all levels of their career.

We specialise in Leadership, Management and Personal Development by spending time with you, your business and your employees and focus learning on the specific requirements agreed, this has proved to be a powerfully effective method of maximising the return on your investment and could never be accused of being ‘off the shelf’.

JAMES Learning & Development Ltd is proud of its reputation of delivering a high, measurable Return on Investment and when a business understands the massive benefits of investing in its people, we take care and pride in helping to deliver the highest of returns.

The decision to set up the business came after two years of deliberation…… and a 4 week consultation period! Sometimes a boot in the right place at the right time has a remarkably positive impact.

The name JAMES is a mnemonic of my family and me (Joe, Andy, Mark, Emma, Sue), it fits perfectly and serves as a powerful motivator. The Learning & Development part speaks for itself. If we’re fortunate enough to work together in the future, I may well tell you the story behind the logo too!

Thanks for your interest in JAMES Learning & Development Ltd, have a great day whatever you’re doing.
