With over 28 years in performing arts and industry James Hasler set up HaslerHill Consulting in 2012 to primarily help people to present with confidence when they were thrust into the limelight.
However, what became apparent very rapidly was that he himself was not only training others, but was receiving many requests to front and facilitate events on behalf of his clients.
This now forms a major part of the business; running events of all kinds from awards ceremonies and fundraisers, through to symposia and conferences, both press and otherwise with great success.
Prior to setting up his business, James’ time in industry was spent in working in customer service for Saab, Jaguar and Aston Martin.“Things go wrong with cars and they cost money to run. It is how you react when your customers need to spend their hard earned money, either expectedly or more so when unexpectedly, that sets you apart.” As such, James always strived to give the best service possible and had many customers that followed him between brands.
As an amateur and semi-professional actor, James’ experience stretches back to his school days. He has built up substantial experience as a versatile performer, having been nominated on numerous occasions as best actor or best-supporting actor at festivals across the UK. This then lead him to City Lit, in the City of London, where he furthered his amateur and semi-professional experience by studying the performing arts. It is these stagecraft skills that he uses to both guide others and run events with impact.
Additionally, while studying at City Lit, he concentrated on training for acting in radio and voice production. As such James now has a small studio at home where he regularly produces pre-recorded announcements for events, as well as narration for video.
As well as setting up HaslerHill Consulting, 2012 was a big year. For part of the year, James was fortunate and privileged enough to be a “Games Maker” volunteer at the Olympic and Paralympic Games held in London, as well as for the Chef De Mission events prior to the games themselves. His role as a team leader in the transport department, meant he was responsible for teams of drivers, helping them on shift and guiding them with additional training and coaching them on enhancing skills to carry out their role with confidence.
Also in 2012, James trained as a professional toastmaster. Following training, he became a Fellow with the Guild of International Professional Toastmasters and has since obtained notoriety as one of the country’s leading Masters of Ceremony in his guise as “The Man in the Red Coat”.
Finally, when not working hard at being the voice of confidence on either side of a microphone, or enabling others to gain their own confidence, James is a family man who likes nothing better than spending time with his wife and daughter, at home, in their campervan or up a mountain somewhere.
“James is always fun to work with. He is good value for money and I have used him on more than one occasion – each time he has given us great results.” PetinaHapgood of Goodman Productions
