"Jim lives and breathes Product Management. We hired Jim at Booodl to help train junior staff on the one hand, help drive product strategy on the other, and pinch hit wherever we needed his expertise. We found his enthusiasm, energy and superlative knowledge irrepressible."

Mike McGee, Head of Product at www.booodl.com

 

"Jim's ability to operate and switch between both high-level strategy and low-level detailed work has been a huge asset.  He's been most effective when helping draw out unstated aspirations and hidden assumptions."

Alan Jones, Tech investor & advisor. Chief Growth Hacker at Blue Chilli

 

"Jim understood our business model options in a flash. We explored these ideas and came out with a much sharper understanding of our target market, value proposition and more. He helped us understand what assumptions we needed to test more deeply and he also had an great approach to planning the user experience which surfaced plenty of ideas including a brand new product that's currently being built!"
