James said: “It’s an honour to be selected as a judge for the GBEA. I love working with entrepreneurs and business owners. Helping leaders as well as the business thrive and grow is a great source of fulfilment for me – it doesn’t feel like work when you enjoy it as much as I do. I’m delighted to be judging such an inspirational group of entrepreneurial businesses and I look forward to hearing their stories.
