"With energy and passion, Adrian communicates what leaders should and need to know and importantly the Why?. He has an expert view of the "toolbox"and is able to put leadership theory into a practical content by making it adaptable to the changing business environments we all face. Having completed a nine month senior leadership programme I found Adrian's coaching and mentoring as a course leader insightful and personally rewarding. He supported my functions' change programme with very positive results and is certainly someone I can strongly recommend."
Colin Lloyd, Head of Quality, Element Six (De Beers)
"I had the pleasure of working through a senior leadership program with Adrian’s coaching and mentorship. From the first meeting I was struck by Adrian’s energy and passion as well as his uncanny ability to get straight to the heart of the matter under discussion. I particularly appreciated the way he rooted out and insisted on dealing with uncomfortable realities when necessary. His knowledge and understanding of leadership theory and practice are extensive and he is able to apply the same easily in fluid situations. Adrian also supported some of my staff in related leadership programs and the feedback I have matches my own experience. I strongly recommend Adrian as a change and leadership facilitator, trainer and coach."
Iain Goudemond, Operations Manager, Element Six (De Beers)
"I had the pleasure of partaking in extensive leadership workshops that were organised and facilitated by Adrian. These workshops were extremely insightful and enjoyable. providing very useful in terms of understanding my own strengths and weaknesses and how to best utilise these aspects of my character to become a better leader and manager. These practical workshops were highly engaging and practical. We worked on real projects that were of benefit to our company. Coming from a sales background himself, Adrian had many informative insights and was enthusiastic in his support of our endeavours (even after our course had finished). I would highly recommend Adrian as an extremely professional and gifted individual and I would have no hesitation in recommending Adrian to any company that are looking to enhance the capabilities of their executive employees"
