Testimonials

James Dutton is an amazing speaker with an inspirational business story to tell.
I have had the pleasure of seeing James present on several occasions. Both as the keynote in front of an arena full of business executives and also in a more intimate setting with business owners. Every time he speaks you can feel his passion and wisdom come through. His stage presence would be summed up, for me, as transformational leadership through inspiration. That is what James does, he inspires greatness by sharing himself and the story of his journey in business... POWERFUL!

James’ story on it’s own is captivating, but his storytelling and experience elevates Nutricare’s story to make it one of Australia’s great recent business successes. Chatting to James on The Mentor made it clear to me that Australia’s business community can find a wealth of insight and inspiration in his story.

Here at Unique, we simply love working with James. Not only is his passion highly infectious, his authenticity and sincerity is palpable from the moment you meet him. Coming from a place of pure love for his son’s health plight, James set about finding a solution for Charlie and in the process built one of the most innovative alternatives to a commonly used household item. I personally find him to be a man of integrity and a delight to partner with in business. A genuine “can-do” man.

James is an incredible leader. His products are effective, beautiful and good for the environment. He is an inspirational speaker and the story of how he launched and grew (and continues to grow) Nutricare a true Aussie success story. I can't wait to see Nutricare products at every pharmacy and retailer across the world and know that this will be due to James' tenacity and amazing ability to tell his story.

There is a famous saying about leaders that I hold very true to my heart: “When you leave a meeting with a manager, you learn how great he/she is. When you leave a meeting with a leader, you learn how great you are. James Dutton is a world-class leader who is passionate about leaving the world in a better place. I had the pleasure of getting to know James over the past 3 years through our shared affiliations with industry organisations that drive innovation and opportunities for Australian retailers. Most recently with Frontliners Australia where together with a group of likeminded individuals we were able to support the frontline workers dealing with COVID-19. James and the team at Nutricare provided much-needed bandages to frontline workers during COVID. Not only did James step out of his role and show up, he rolled up his sleeves and collaborated on strategy, messaging and problem-solving. James has outstanding knowledge and industry experience in distribution and a passion for delivering much needed natural and sustainable solutions to the healthcare market. I have watched in awe as Nutricare has literally taken their products around the globe and had unprecedented success in the natural therapy space.

I've known James from the start of the Nutricare journey and what's impressive is his ability to keep the same team around him through all the challenges of a global startup. He's a visionary and thinks in years not months but is able to translate that vision into a tangible reality for his team to keep the business moving. The very best leaders are those that can move quickly but also show a deep sense of care, empathy and trust and James has all of those qualities in abundance which is rare and why I believe he's so successful.

I have had the great pleasure of knowing James Dutton for the past 20 years. He is one of the most talented, driven and hard-working executives I’ve ever met. And to say he is adaptive is an understatement. He created Nutricare Holdings, a totally new business, then during a global pandemic continued to drive its success. I commend him to you because to hear from a person with his business acumen is a rare gift.
