I'm James.

Profile

With a background firstly in Garden Design, then Fashion Retail and Marketing - My more recent years of work have been firmly 'planted' in the world of tropical plants, flowers and botanical products.  Being a creative, resourceful and dedicated problem solver, my passion for plants and product can be seen throughout my career history in various forms.  I have a keen eye for detail and apply this to all aspects of my work and personal life.  Recent work on commercial scale projects, events, online houseplant retail, buying, styling and business management have opened up a new career path for me.  My natural sense of customer needs, knowledge of how to deliver high-quality service, excellent communication skills and pure enthusiasm for my work can be seen throughout my portfolio.

Experience

My previous employers have enabled me to work on projects of every scale, type and style in the industry.  Large-scale corporate planting schemes, project management, seasonal display and detailed styling work at prestigious events for global brands and charities have given a broad experience.  These projects included working with Ikea, WeWork, EJAF, Disney, UBS, ITV, Warner Bros., J.W. Marriott, Selfridges, Harrods and most recently The RHS Chelsea Flower Show at which I won a Gold medal for my Houseplant Studio 'The Green Room' with Malvern Garden Buildings.

Skills

My skillset is broad and I can manage many aspects of a business or project. Whether it be research, planning, people, operations, budget control, content creation or marketing; I enjoy getting involved in both the planning stages as well as the physical realisation of any concept.
