James Bargeron

So a slightly longer interview today – very interesting!  Join us on WomenUP Radio with our guest James Bargeron, former shipping and oil broker, now speaker, trainer and coach specialising in high performance and leadership. We will be discussing:

– How can we evolve to true gender balance? Why does it seem to be so difficult for all businesses who want to evolve to genuine gender balance in their companies? Has the approach to performance and leadership changed much over the last 30 years? 

 – What are the additional challenges working in traditional male sectors like oil and shipping? What do you see in those sectors regarding men, women, careers and gender balance? Advice for women wanting to enter, and succeed, in these types of traditionally male industries

– How can corporations make their businesses more motivating and pleasant to work for, and to help them keep talented employees happy and inspired over the long term?

Listen to James’ experience, advice and tips on gender balance and the realities of working in traditionally male sectors as well as advice on high performance and leadership!



Please give us your feedback on this topic and any suggestions on others you would like to hear – you can find us on facebook @WomenUP.Radio and twitter @WomenUP_Radio

James Bargeron spent almost 30 years in shipping/oil industry, negotiating complex legal contracts for the transportation of oil across the globe. He set up a niche brokerage firm at the age of 22 along with 2 others, working with some of the worlds leading oil trading and oil companies. With the global financial meltdown and subsequent fall from grace, James’ career path took him in a completely new direction; but not before spending much time reflecting on where did it all go wrong. Or did it? Now on his 2nd career as a speaker, trainer and coach focusing on high performance and leadership, he enjoys working with people who aspire to achieve more in life.
