“In my previous position as Manager, Training and Development, CIBC Wood Gundy, I developed a genuine relationship with James as he was one of the trainers that I could always count on, always trust, and was pretty much a favourite for our New Investment Advisor Training Program. I love the fact that James has the ability to really customize to any group of business, which makes it so real to the participants. He has the same level of success with the sales support teams, in particular, the Investment Advisor Assistants and Associates.
