A Performance Poet, David Adams has developed 'Unlocking Creativity & Building Trust' interactive workshops, using the power of poetry to develop mutual vulnerability as a means of opening up the creative minds of senior executives and others to help them improve their overall communication skills, relationships and solve the unsolvable. The results have been remarkable in unlocking creativity driving innovation and thus, driving productivity and profit.
The workshops are often used as a precursor to deep issue sessions, where teams and individuals are then enabled to be less inhibited, allowing themselves to be more vulnerable to their colleagues and to themselves. David is a former president of the London Society of Chartered Accountants. He has been a director of the Hampstead Theatre and an accredited member of the Association for Coaching.
