Carolyn J Carpenter
Founder - Hollywood Gatekeepers
I train people how to analyze screenplays for the film industry. I’ve read over eleven thousand screenplays. I am buried deep in the world of story-telling. Yet, I’ve never met anyone quite like Jamie. As a story-teller, Jamie's talent is mind-blowing. He unleashes stories in a unique, authentic, accessible, heartfelt and entertaining fashion. Brace yourself. Jamie will open your eyes and your mind to the power of story-telling. If you have a chance to work with Jamie, do it. You'll be glad you did.
Director at Norwich Institute for Language Education (NILE)
NILE is recognised as the leading language teacher training institute in the UK. Since 2014, Jamie has been part of our team as an associate trainer and ambassador for the institute. His innovative courses on visual materials and storytelling are among our most popular. I would add that he is also one of the best conference presenters in the profession.
Skills & Systems Program Manager, Microsoft WW Public Sector - Education
We partnered with Jamie on a project which empowered 200 young female computer scientists by offering them perspectives on leadership. In preparation for a 2-day hackathon event, Jamie trained the participants to incorporate storytelling into their presentations. This allowed them to create pitches that were compelling and memorable. I look forward to working with Jamie on similar future projects.
Copy Lead, Global Copy Team, Vista (Barcelona)
We hired Jamie as part of a team-building program to help our creative team connect and develop their storytelling skills. Jamie’s techniques, which make use of short online videos, are highly innovative and effective. His sessions were fun and memorable. He is a great trainer. Highly recommended!
