James Evanow is an international speaker, author, and trainer. His flagship program, “Chart Your Course,” provides breakthrough training in the areas of emotional intelligence, leadership and belief awareness.
James is a multi-talented entrepreneurial businessman, and what sets him apart from other speakers and trainers are his experiences in over 20 years as a sea captain. He is uniquely qualified to help corporations, organizations, and individuals to achieve their goals by breaking through destructive patterns.
In his speeches and workshops James shares compelling stories from his years at sea—in severe conditions, sometimes facing life and death situations—that teach people how to navigate through turbulent times. His unique style combines his passion with his wit and humor to deliver an effective and entertaining presentation to inspire improved communication and leadership skills.
He has travelled throughout the United States and Canada, conducting trainings on Emotional Intelligence and Creative Leadership in over 40 cities. He is a certified empowerment coach and works with executives as well as supervisors and upper level management.
His passion for helping people inspired him to write his first book, “Wisdom From the Sea,” which chronicles tales of adventure at sea in the context of leadership and development.
