Let two masters of their fields show you how!


James and Jim show through practical, engaging and entertaining stories and exercises how anyone can create original ideas that can capture clients, customers and markets. Using examples of innovation in music, the arts, information technology and leading businesses internationally, they show you how you and your staff can make the transition from followers to market leaders and how to retain that competitive advantage through continuous innovation. James is renowned as being an International leader in world of Jazz. His unparalleled ability to create truly original inspiring and successful music combines exceptional technical talent with a creative force that never fails to inspire, innovate to provide an outstanding experiences for audiences around the world.


Apart from touring the world for most of the year James is also head of Morrison Records, an independent label dedicated to the best of jazz. He also spends much time in education, doing master classes and workshops in many countries and running a jazz scholarship.


An avid user of the latest technologies James is very involved in furthering the presence of jazz and music education on the Internet and also uses computers extensively in his writing, recording and performances. When not writing film scores, composing or being patron of several youth orchestras, James relaxes in some fairly unconventional ways for a musician - competing in triathlons, abseiling, flying his private plane or driving in a rally championship. His love of cars is well known, as he was host of the national TVprogram "Behind the Wheel" and now co host of Top Gear Australia.


With interests so broad and a career so filled with highlights it seems that he has done just about everything anyone could want - not so. When asked, "What is there left to do?" His reply is typically exciting "This is just the warm up!"
