James moderated a very lively and thought provoking panel discussion at the Property Council of Australia commercial property conference in Perth. He skilfully guided the discussion.
James did a great job and we were very happy with the way he conducted the Awards night. He was very clear in his delivery and he was able to build the tension before announcing the Major Award Winners.
