HPL® is here to help clear away the obstacles standing in the way of you achieving professional and personal mastery.

You want to achieve your goals but personal mastery always seems to take a back seat to other priorities because...
  • You don’t know what to focus on
  • You feel stuck
  • You can't seem to make a confident decision
  • You're struggling to juggle family, life and work
  • You can’t seem to find the time to make this a priority
  • You're busy being busy
  • You keep running those old disempowering beliefs in your head
  • You aren't sure where to start
  • You feel overwhelmed
  • You have habits that are hindering NOT helping you

You probably nodded your head to every single one of those, didn’t you? How do I know? Because I was once there myself. 


Are you ready to get radically clear and lead the life you've always desired?


There is often so much to do everyday, that we become overwhelmed and lose sight of what we truly want in life and business. The busyness can be incredibly frustrating. You feel like you are rushing from one aimless task to another, and never really moving the needle.

Something has got to give.

It doesn't have to be you. Sometimes all it takes is getting clear on your North Star and getting rid of the rest.

I have been in your shoes. I have felt stuck and overwhelmed, knowing where I wanted to be but having no idea how to get there.

Luckily, I have a framework that will help you speed up the process, so that you don't have to stay stuck for as long as I did. It's time to get out of your head and into your heart. The HPL® framework with help you get radically clear on your North Star, and equip you with tools and strategies to focus only on what moves the needle.

Here's what a few previous attendees have to say about HPL®



I have previously held this event over two days. The tickets were $1800, and the event always sold out, however I knew that it was not accessible to everyone. This year we have decided to reduce the tickets to a more affordable price point and hold the event over a full day. This event sells out every single year - make sure you don't miss out. Thousands of people have went through HPL® with tremendous breakthroughs. This year, join the ranks of other high-performers who invested in themselves.

King's Birthday Special (only 50 tickets)

  • Gourmet Morning tea, lunch and snack
  • The HPL® Framework Book (valued at $299)

 What James does really well as a coach and facilitator is knowing when to chuck a grenade in the middle to see what happens and then combining that with knowing when to sit back and say nothing.

Anne Newman

GM, Christchurch Adventure Park

James is excellent at bringing the principles to life and delivers the course in a way that is engaging and inspiring.

The course gives you time to reflect on your own skillset and you leave with actionable work on’s to enhance your personal leadership abilities.

James gave us the mental tools as an organisation that can equip us to be the best, and did so in a way that has inspired us to want to do so.

Don't climb the wrong mountain

 You don't want to wake up one day, only to realise that you have climbed the wrong mountain and wasted a bunch of time and money doing so. 

I have been the person who wasn't sure where I was heading. I knew what I wanted out of life, but I had no idea how to get there. Don't waste your time like I did.

After 15 years of trial and error, I finally realised that I had been doing things in the wrong order. How can you self-evaluate when you aren't even clear on what you should be doing?!

The HPL® framework takes the guesswork out of self-leadership, and will leave you with a roadmap to the future you have always wanted.


You could:

  • Spend $200 p/h with a coach over multiple sessions to get clear on some of these pillars
  • Spend $35,000 for a years' 1:1 programme to help you get clear
  • Read 100's of books and spend the time distilling the learnings into a framework
  • Try and fail a countless amount of times for the next 15 years


Or you could grab your ticket now and get clear on what you really want in life and business, and walk away with a clear roadmap to help you get there!

I believe that what the world needs most right now is leadership. There is nothing more important than learning to lead yourself before you can lead others.

If we can change the way we lead ourselves, we will change the way we lead those around us. If we can inspire one other person to lead a better life, we will begin to notice change in our communities, businesses, families and every other pillar of society.

There is nothing better than knowing you have helped someone on their journey.


HPL® is my flagship course, this will be the 4th time I am opening it up to the public. I truly believe that we need to find a way to make leadership growth and development accessible so that we can see some real change in the world around us.

I'm in it with you all the way.
