Jim Lawless's Biography

Jim Lawless is one of the most popular inspirational speakers in Europe today and the only authority on business change and personal development to have put his life on the line to prove his approach.


Founder and CEO of Taming Tigers, Jim works with a wide variety of blue chip clients to establish (and achieve) bold and aligned goals throughout the organisation, high performing teams and long-term change in culture, mindset and performance.

In 2001, in response to an audience challenge, Jim proved his Ten Rules for Taming Tigers by becoming a jockey in 12 months. At the outset he was 3 stone (20kg) too heavy and could not ride a horse.

Jim was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts in 2008 in recognition of his business writing and is the author of the book ‘Taming Tigers’ (Virgin Books). He qualified as a solicitor in 1994, working in the city and in a major IT company before founding Taming Tigers (then called “Optimise’) in 1999.

In August 2010, to test new Taming Tigers theories around mental toughness, Jim became Britain’s Deepest Free Diver, the first Briton to dive below the magic 100 metre barrier on a single breath of air.

Jim’s entertaining and practical speeches and workshops give his audiences a new set of possibilities and responsibilities and changes their ideas about what they can achieve, ensuring they leave excited about making a difference. Jim will inspire peak performance – at work or at home, and he brings a fresh approach to personal and business communications. He has great credibility with audiences having not only achieved his high risk sporting goals, but also having worked at board level in business and sales and as a current advisor to many major British and international companies.

Jim Lawless consistently delivers inspiring, challenging and hugely entertaining keynote presentations leaving audiences the longevity of the attitude shift that he creates.
