The infinite capacity for creativity in all of us – not so much the occasional ‘light bulb’ moments, but the myriad points of sparkling energy and awareness that are always close by, which can drive positive and resourceful change.
Adrian is an experienced professional certified coach (PCC) and facilitator with prior executive experience in both financial and commercial roles. He works with senior leaders and their teams in a range of UK and international businesses.
Adrian has been focused on executive, leadership and team coaching and facilitation for the past nine years, and has over 2000 hours’ experience. He has worked with finance sector clients including Allianz Global Investors, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, EBRD, RBS and Rothschild, and others including Johnson Matthey, Munich Re, Olswang, Salesforce, TUI and Unilever. He works regularly as a coach at London Business School.
Adrian’s style is positive, pragmatic and future-focused, tuning the level of challenge to suit each individual in the most productive way. Coaching provides an impartial, confidential sounding board for leaders to develop clarity in their goals, build confidence and create actions for effective change and progress. He draws on a range of approaches and techniques as appropriate for each client and their context.
As a facilitator with teams, his style is highly interactive with his work typically including a bespoke mix of ‘right brain’ (vision, motivation, creativity, relationship) and ‘left brain’ (learning, planning, accountability, actions) aspects.
Adrian has over 25 years’ prior business experience, including in equity research with Goldman Sachs and SBC Warburg (UBS), followed by Director of Strategy & Planning with a national telecoms and Internet services provider. He then launched his own business, supporting SME clients, primarily in technology, with strategy, financing and business development in the VC sector, before training as a professional coach.
Brought up the son of a headteacher near Oxford, Adrian has always been passionate about learning, science, music and cricket, and has three sons in their 20’s. He sees coaching and facilitation as the most effective way to work as an agent of change for leaders and their organisations to achieve their goals.
