Speaker Bio

David Adams

After a few years as a CEO member David became a Vistage Chair from 1998 to 2018.

He combines his professional background and his own personal abilities to work with his coaching clients to help them help themselves to become extra-ordinary in their lives and in their chosen businesses.

He achieves this through business coaching, some mentoring and a drive and tenacity which prevents his members from allowing themselves “off the hook”.

David is a chartered accountant, former corporate financier, CEO, non-executive chairman, trustee and performance poet, enabling him to coach his members and other clients with a huge degree of empathy.
