James Downiethrives on inspiring individuals and audiences up to 3,000 people. As a Trainer and Coach, James has shared the podium with some of the best in the world, including Dr. Denis Waitley, Robert Allen, T. Harv Eker, Andrew Barber-Starkey, David Wood and many others.
A note to you from James:
“Allow me to share a bit about myself. I feel it is important for you to know and understand the heart and intent of the person you consider placing in your sphere of influence.
I am a nature-enthusiast and an avid reader. I love to travel and am inspired by the genuine, heart-open people I meet in unexpected places and situations. My true passion is my 20-year old son, David. I am married to my beautiful goddess Shilo and we reside in Calgary, Alberta with our border collie Taz, when we’re not off on an adventure living the laptop lifestyle! I am blessed with an incredible family: loving and supportive. I am very involved in personal and spiritual development work and communities of enlightened people.
Beyond my role as an international sales trainer, speaker and entrepreneur, I am a graduate of the University of Manitoba and have worked as a scientist, teacher, sales representative and a business owner. While working for Philips Electronics, one of the largest corporations in the world, I won the Golden Circle Award as one of their top salesmen in Canada, and I was also one of two Canadians chosen to conduct sales training for the whole company.
Several years ago, I started an international distribution business. Within 18 months my sales reached in excess of $40,000 a week; that’s over $2 million a year. Today, I spend only a small amount of time managing this business, yet it still provides a substantial income stream.
The passive income from my businesses allows me to focus on my true purpose – doing whatever it takes to help others realize the unlimited potential of their lives. I am inspired every time I help someone embrace their power, creativity and joy, and step into the larger and fuller life they deserve. My mission is to support people in “transforming turmoil, confusion and limitations into Peace, Passion and Possibility NOW!”

Everything I have learned I am pouring into my purposeful heart-open offerings:
- A great business opportunity
- Speaking & Training engagements and events
My philosophy is to care, coach and connect while working closely with the people who put their trust in my leadership. I believe it is in the giving that we receive. My success is a mere reflection of the genuine presence and dedication I give the people I support.
Every day, I am moved with gratitude for the opportunities afforded me, for the people on my team, for my family and my friends.
I am humbled by the many incredible people who I have been fortunate to meet as a result of my business, coaching, speaking and more… I illustrate below many of the kind and powerful words they have shared about the impact I have had on them. . .”
“James, what a warm and inviting presence you have!! Always present, and approachable, even when leading the course. The ease of connecting with me (and everyone else in the audience, I suspect) made me compelled, not only to listen to the words you spoke, but the wisdom that flowed from your eyes. You have natural and skilled communication and leadership skills that… well, frankly… blow me away. Three words to describe you: inspirational, genuine authenticity, teacher/master/guru. Thank you.”
“Thank you James for your constant love and support. You are a pillar of strength and have been there for me through some of my darkest moments. Thank you for your gentle prodding. I appreciate the “firsts” and breakthroughs you have helped me achieve this past year.”
“Your calm, embracing presence is inspiring. You are so intuitive and allow yourself to be the channel for what needs to be said. But when you say it, it is coming from a place of compassion… Thank you for sharing your gifts of leadership and focus.”
