Chair Bio

Adam Harris


A serial and often successful business leader, owner, and innovator, with a keen understanding of the value of strategic connections – and an equally ardent aversion to clutter, noise, fluff, and drudgery that gets in the way of our success. As the Introducer, he seeks to acquaint us not only with the power of networks – but with enhanced results and greater opportunity.

He can help leaders and executive teams determine who we need to know, and who and what they need to know, to produce sustainable business and personal results.

Adam established his business consultancy, Fresh Mindset by The Introducer in 2010, and has worked with CEOs and senior managers providing training, coaching and high level peer group activities to convert opportunities into successes, drive profit, facilitate change, define company direction, and leverage the network.

Adam lives in Derbyshire with his wife and two small daughters, who keep him well and truly on his toes.

Types of Group run by this Chair

Taking elements from both the Key Executive and Small Business programs, these coaching groups are designed to support both leaders of smaller SME businesses as well as key executives reporting to CEOs to develop their skills, tackle obstacles, develop innovative strategies and actively move their businesses forward.

Join up to 16 successful executives from a diverse range of businesses and backgrounds and build your skills through challenging discussions, fresh perspectives on the key executive role, strategies to help your business grow, and expert guidance, learning and coaching from Vistage speakers.

We have specific groups for CEOs/MDs running larger SME business (typically £3-£50m); executives running smaller businesses (typically £1-3m); key executives who report to a CEO/MD; and for organisations that wish to bring Vistage inside their organisation for all their senior management team.
