“The first essential, the life and soul, so to speak, of a story, is the Plot.”


Stories made our species thrive.

James always has a story to tell – ideally that story is about how Ancient Greece has impacted the modern world, but there are a number of other topics James specialises in.

We outlived Neanderthals not because we were stronger, faster or more intelligent but because we were better at gossiping. Homo sapiens are adept at forming groups and finding a common cause. Today it’s more about uniting on social media, and less about keeping an eye out for a woolly mammoth.

Inspired by great storytellers like Homer and Ovid, James’s passion and energy as a speaker always shines through no matter the topic or occasion.
