Countless thousands more have been inspired by Taming Tigers by Jim Lawless, one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers, and CEO of the Velocity Corporation. With his team, has implemented successful change programs in companies including Apple, Barclaycard, Atos, Axa, BT, Aramark, Skrill Group and Badminton England.

He insists on testing principles of change on himself before advising others. In August 2010, he used “Taming Tigers” to become Britain’s Deepest Freediver, the first Briton to dive below the magic 100m barrier on a single breath of air. The presentation is unique because Jim has undergone “impossible” change twice to prove that his principles work. The “Tiger” is Jim’s metaphor – The Ten Rules are practical tools to overcome any barrier. Jim’s second book – The 7 C’s of Cultural Change will be in the shops in September 2015.
