Border crosser and rule breaker
No advice without first putting it to the test: that is the motto of Jim Lawless.
The British expert on cultural change in organisations was willing to risk his own life to demonstrate one of his theories – in 2010, he became England’s deepest free diver, diving below the 100-metre barrier on a single breath of air, all to test his new theory about mental resilience. Before setting up his coaching and motivational company “The Velocity Corporation” (or “Optimise” as it was known then), Jim Lawless practised commercial law for the City of London and a major IT firm. In 2008, he was elected a “Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts” in recognition of his literary work. Jim Lawless is the author of the book “Taming Tigers: Do things you never thought you could”.

Jim Lawless is one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers. Over half a million people on five continents have been entertained and inspired by Jim’s presentations and many more by his bestselling book “Taming Tigers” (Random House).
As CEO of Taming Tigers Limited, Jim has advised companies globally on creating organisational Cultural Change and elite teams. With his team, has implemented successful change programmes in companies including Apple, Barclaycard, Atos, Axa, BT, Aramark, Skrill Group and Badminton England.
He insists on testing principles of change on himself before advising others. In August 2010, he used “Taming Tigers” to become Britain’s Deepest Freediver, the first Briton to dive below the magic 100m barrier on a single breath of air.
In 2003, in response to an audience challenge, he proved “Taming Tigers” by becoming a televised jockey in 12 months. At the outset he was 3 stone (20kg) too heavy and could not ride a horse. He won the bet.
