You will benefit from my depth and breadth of knowledge across industries and functions. I have led teams of 1 to 38 people in Canada and Australia (with a little stint in Cameroon and Tunisia, too!).
I have worked in various departments and environments, including:
"My leadership team participated in Adrian's 'Be Your Best' program and were very impressed. Adrian is an engaging presenter and his content is easy to understand, immediately useful and will provide real value to the team. His book 'Teams That Swear' is also full of valuable content that the team will be able to use in the business. Would recommend Adrian and his book to anyone wanting to improve their team."
"By working with Adrian, the team has opened up and as a result, a number of different idea and perceptions are being used. This will definitely raise interesting conversations and challenges amongst the team."
" I would recommend Adrian to anyone looking to find a more personalised approach to their development – he has helped me become a better teacher and supporter to my staff, leader in my organisation and more rounded person across all parts of my life."
I was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I once lived in Regina, Saskatchewan. I now live in Melbourne, Australia. And no, the Sasquatch is not from Saskatchewan.
I believe hate is a strong word. It’s banned in our house.
Best piece of advice: “A baseball’s job is to make you look silly. Rather than wait for the ball, stop it from making you look silly and go get it.” I think these words apply to life. And at the pub waiting for a drink.
I love a good tshirt. I think your image can tell a good story.
Favourite drink - the Caesar. A Canadian specialty.
Music - I love it all. John Farnham's the Voice has grown on me. The Tragically Hip, Metallica, Neil Young and Taylor Swift. You name it, I like it. Except Miley Cyrus. Check out my playlist on spotify.
I love a good card game. Presidents, cribbage and chit chat are 3 of my favourites.
I believe in the power of writing things down. I’ll tell you a cool story about it one day if you want.
Favourite youtube clip - Jimmy Fallon and Metallica. Check it out as well of some of my other favourite clips. Some funny ones, some inspirational ones and a few good tunes.
Despite working closely with Cricket Australia, I still don’t get the five day format of the game.
