James Freemantle grew up in Hamilton: the heart of Victoria’s Redgum-dotted Western District. In this compelling landscape, he learnt early the power of perception in creating reality: the strength in choosing which facets of the visual, vocal and verbal selves you share to form and build positive relationships, presence and impact. James has worked nationally and internationally in communications and training for over two decades, helping people to experience dramatic improvement in their abilities to express, influence and inspire. In 2008 he founded REDgum Communications and has built an impressive array of clients. CEOs, managers, graduate recruits, professional sportspeople and entertainers. These people rely on James to help grow their abilities in interpersonal communications: personal brand, presentation techniques, resilience and media interactions. James tailors coaching, workshops, and presentations that focus on goal achievement through systematic delivery on personal brand ‘promises’ in professional and personal lives.

He’s a father of three and husband of one. The four (plus the dog) keep him laughing and grounded.
