About
James Evanow is a speaker, an author, and an entrepreneur. What sets him apart is his 23-year journey as a Sea Captain.

Event and Meeting Planners... if you looking for a powerful speaker that will bring you dynamic content, adventurous stories, and powerful lessons that will leave the audience with impactful insights that they can apply to their lives immediately, then you have come to the right place!

James' presentations have been focusing on servant leadership, empowerment, and accountability. James has been creating awareness around the lack of enthusiasm in the work force and is leaving the audience with plenty to consider about going the extra mile in any situation, including empowering those around them.

The Captain will deliver an adventurous talk, punctuated with metaphors from the sea and content filled with timeless secrets that will leave your audience riveted! They will be thinking about the the lessons that he weaves into his stories for days, weeks, and years to come.

His passion for inspiring and motivating people led him to write his first book, "Wisdom From the Sea," which chronicles his tales of dealing with life and death situations at sea requiring extra ordinary leadership. Since leaving a full-time career at sea, James has acquired diverse experience in the business world. He has traveled internationally, speaking on topics such as leadership, emotional intelligence and much more. His flagship program, "Chart Your Course," is an all-encompassing training to break destructive patterns that limit growth in business, and in life.

In his speeches and workshops, James shares compelling stories from his years at sea—in severe situations that teach people how to lead and navigate through turbulent times. His unique style combines his passion with his wit and humor to deliver an effective and entertaining presentation that inspires and entertains his audiences that will leave them with lasting life-changing lessons.

James did a great job and I am recommending him to other divisions in our region. "We had James speaking with us today, he gave a great presentation with our construction group, which is underground civil construction. We had a very engaged audience who laughed at moments, it was a great presentation. Greater than we expected! Thank you James!”

James delivered a great speech at our annual conference this past May. This was our first time booking a speaker for our annual conference, and our first time using gigmasters. We were totally satisfied with whole process and would highly recommend James, and would book through gigmasters again. -Mike Maclay, NEBB CP PNEBB Board of Directors

Capt. Evanow captivated our group and company representatives with his stories from the sea. He has a fresh and unique approach when it comes to inspiring others and managing staff members while spotlighting their skills and strengths. Capt. James is focused on changing the lives of those he encounters, and it shows. He is very genuine and transparent when it comes to his mission, and our guests’ were sincerely touched and inspired by his words and wisdom. We hope to have him back in the future for a second meeting.

Captain Evanow great to work with, from day one! A great story, message and takeaway, with humor and candor throughout! We hired the Captain, to inspire a strategic planning session with our Tribal Council and Executive Team. Captain Evanow kicked off day two of the event, and set a very positive and inspiring tone for our team building session. Book the Captain!

James was a pleasure to work with. We have never had a speaker that was able to use the metaphors that James has from his past experiences at sea. He masterfully crafted the talk to fit the needs of our team and left us with plenty to think about in the areas of thriving through any situation of difficulty we might encounter in our work and our life. I highly recommend James Evanow for any conference, corporate event or training!!
