  Hi, James Navé here.

Hi, James Navé here.

 Do you have ideas for projects you'd like to start and finish?

  Let's explore how we can work together and get the job done. 

During our collaboration, you'll use Julia Cameron's book The Artist's Way as your creativity guide, Imaginative Storm writing techniques to generate your content, and the Appreciative Inquiry 4-D process of discovery, dream, design, and delivery to create your strategic plan. 

Email me and let's can set up a time to chat. Your first session is free. I look forward to hearing from you.

Navé a superb poet and a unique individual full of soul and wisdom: that rare kind you don’t come across very often and when you do, you want to hang around and listen. He gave me the keys to unlock the doors I didn’t dare open. I have a lot to thank him for and anyone who gets an opportunity to work with him should seize it.
— Petra Khashoggi, Novelist
