Culture Change and Leadership Development Partner

ARCADIS is an international company which delivers consulting, design, engineering and management services for infrastructure, environment and buildings. In the UK ARCADIS had grown through organic growth and numerous acquisitions but were not operating as one company and had been hit hard by the recession. We were engaged by the Board to help them lead an engagement and transition programme across the UK to create a single leadership statement which defined a new vision, values, and destination culture. This partnership was extended to designing and delivering a senior leadership development programme aligned to business change and improvement projects which were delivered over a two year period.

"Adrian and Mark were quick to grasp the critical issues of our change project quickly focusing our attention on the main ingredients for success, that is, setting up the right cultural environment. By focusing on this at the outset we were able to engage the business in more than just a name change, but those evolutionary steps to achieve our objective of a culturally aligned organisation."


"I have had the pleasure of working with Adrian and Mark of Cultivate Talent for over a year. During that time, they have helped us develop our leaders for change. They got to know our business needs by understanding the personalities and building bespoke programmes specifically addressing our gaps. They always deliver well considered, challenging and enjoyable programmes and their backup and follow-up support is invaluable."

"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
