these challenges then James is perfect for your next corporate workshop:
● My team doesn’t collaborate well

With more conferences and business events happening online the top virtual emcees and hosts have never
been more in-demand but selecting the right one can be a challenge. Done well, virtual conferences, meetings and summits can be a highly effective way to inspire, inform and educate your clients, prospects and employees. However we’ve all had to sit through those rather long and boring virtual conferences, summits, webinars and events which quite frankly deliver a very low return on investment in terms of time and money.

As a virtual host, panel moderator, podcast host and Wall Street Journal featured Virtual MC James Taylor
has interviewed over 750 CEO’s, celebrities, New York Times bestselling authors, speakers, academics and
experts including Jack Canfield, Sally Hogshead and Guy Kawasaki.

James Taylor has expertly moderated intimate virtual executive briefings for fifty people all the way through
to hosting large multi-speaker virtual and hybrid conferences for tens of thousands.

● Virtual Conferences and Summits
● Virtual Fireside Chats
