We have had cheaper quotes from other entertainers. Why is this?

Well of course you have! There's no surprise there. There are lots and lots of 'performers' offering low fees for their services. But there are far fewer who are truly exceptional at what they do. Most of the performers offering low rates are not professional entertainers. Most of these individuals work another job and perform only as a hobby. And it shows. A low fee usually indicates a low level of professionalism, and a low level of experience.

If you were to visit a specialist orthopaedic consultant, for example, you'd expect to pay the consultant a professional fee because you would be consulting with someone who is highly trained in a very specialised area of expertise.

In the same way, Julian James provides a very unique service. He has dedicated his life to honing the special skills that allow him to provide an experience that is not only absolutely professional, but one that makes a powerful and lasting impression every single time.

Trying to cut corners on professionalism will only be detrimental to the success of your event, and may reflect poorly on you as the decision maker.
