Adam is always very helpful and enthusiastic as a mentor for my startup while I was in Sydney University Incubator program. He had provided my team with great insight into different markets and features that would work for many different verticals.

Having reached a point in my career where I was questioning my direction and what next looked like, I was keen to clarify and identify where my true core competencies, to help shape my future progression. I worked with Adam to discover my strengths, and then how best to leverage these talents. As I was unsure about the best place to start, It was extremely beneficial to work with someone like Adam, who was an expert in leveraging programs such as Gallup to maximise the process involved. More than anything else, it was Adam’s ability to combine his knowledge with his enthusiastic and passionate personality, to build a genuine rapport with myself, guiding me through the process of creating a plan of action which was both enjoyable and effective, helping recalibrate my career.

Adam is a focused, driven, leader with integrity and strong business acumen. He possesses an accurate insight into the technology marketplace and its value and application for and within a clients' business. Adam is one who leads from the front and as such accelerates those with him in their education of the tasks at hand. It is with these same traits that Adam has built strategically and financially meaningful partner relationships. I am most happy to endorse Adam.

This is my personal recommendation for Adam C. I have been working with Adam from many years and I found him to be consistently pleasant, tackling all challenges with dedication and a smile. Besides being a joy to work with, Adam has many qualities that I seen and one of it is he is a Achiever. I'm always surprise that he has great deal of stamina and can make things happen by turning thoughts into action, he is very good presenting creative ideas and communicate the benefits. While working on a few assignments with Adam, he has demonstrated that he is a take-charge person and never shy away from any responsibility. Even when faced with a complex situation involving many factors, he enjoy managing all of the variables, aligning and realigning them until he find the best way to get things done. Talents and ability may take you to great height but only character can sustain you. Adam is honest, hard working, high ethics, kind and helpful. He is highly dependable and I'm glad and fortunate to have the privilege to know him. I recommend Adam without reservation and wish him all the best in his future.

Adam completed a series of workshops with my leaders that utilised Gallup Strengths. The sessions were insightful and helped my team understand each other's motivations, strengths and challenges so we can work together better. My leaders all found the sessions dynamic and worthwhile.
Adam is a very engaging and empathetic facilitator. Able to personalise the content and involve each participant. Adam also provided us with a lot of material so we could continue with the momentum built in the sessions.
