Warren James – long bio

A self-confessed big kid at heart, Warren James loves mountain bikes and fast cars. It’s no surprise then that his first book is titled Further Faster – but there is much more to this book than speed. 

Warren is a coach and mentor helping career-focused people accelerate their own personal journey so they can take their life and career further, faster. He does this by providing online mentoring, coaching and training to some of Australia’s most talented graduates and employees throughout their careers.

Warren wrote Further Faster – The Ultimate Guide to Accelerating Your Career for young professionals to encourage them to work smarter, not harder. He is passionate about showing them how, with a little effort and forethought, they can achieve more than they ever dreamed possible. 

Warren’s own career success in engineering and project management saw him ascend the corporate ladder and put himself in a position where retirement was an option at age 35. A career highlight was delivering $50+M worth of work under budget, ahead of schedule, without any recordable injuries while managing a team in excess of 150 people.

As a project manager, Warren discovered that he thoroughly enjoyed helping people reach their full potential. He also experienced the burnout that can come from the stress, long hours and immense pressure, needing four months off work to recharge at one point in his career. 

Now, as a leader, mentor and director of Rapid Mentoring, what sets Warren apart is his unique approach that balances life skills and resilience, coupled with a focus on performance and career acceleration. 

Warren’s greatest satisfaction comes from sharing his own path and mentoring motivated people to show them how to achieve a brilliant career coupled with an amazing personal life.
