    "I first met Jim in the Middle East just after he had published ‘The Rise of the Global Nomad’: His book had particular resonance to leaders of expats in the Middle East. It provided a transformative shift in human resource management thinking… Jim is an excellent and engaging speaker with the range and depth of knowledge and experience that makes his talks both interesting and informative."

    “Jim presented at two ASHRM conferences (ASHRM2010 in Bahrain, and ASHRM2012 in

    Abu Dhabi), where he demonstrated his formidable skills as an engaging and informative speaker.

    His sessions were very popular and judged highly by the audiences. I can confidently commend

    Jim Matthewman, as a public speaker.”

    John Raymund Almeda

    "When we had Jim as our consultant speaker for strategic workforce planning back in Singapore 2018, he spoke with laudable mastery, articulating details in layman's terms. His vast experience in human capital management and finance reverberated in the room of select diverse professional participants. He could speak from the heart and with great zest. His very approachable aura would make you think how an achiever and leader like Jim could be so well-grounded and humble after all. No wonder he is a global guru on his field of expertise."
