Very many thanks for the excellent session you facilitated at our retreat. The feedback from all the team was universally enthusiastic, which is a great achievement for this group! Words such as ‘Emotional’, ‘Imaginative’ and ‘Things that really matter’ were in the Plus-Delta session the next day.
From my viewpoint the session achieved all I was looking for and I believe really helped the group go to places in their minds that they would seldom normally access.

David Adams has been helping me since October 2002 and has been an excellent advisor and coach. His style is very balanced. He is supportive but can also be forthright and challenging when needed and has helped me clarify issues and questions in my mind as well as helping to find solutions for professional and personal development. Chief Executive, FTSE 250 Company
"If you are trying to get your members to go deeper, you might want to
book David Adams from London, who I had the pleasure of welcoming in
February for the first time in the U.S., to my two CE and one KEY group
to hear his" Unlocking Creativity" interactive presentation.
"Many of you will remember David at past international conferences when
he assumed the role as our unofficial Poet Laureate and delivered
rousing poetic retrospectives of our meetings. He is also an
accomplished chair and former U.K.member.
"This time David will take your members through a very skillful and
passionate use of poetry to help them deal with their inner-most
emotions that is guaranteed to push their comfort zones big time!
Despite lots of initial resistance and grumbling, David ended up
getting my 51 generally very rational and emotionally-guarded CEOs and
Key executives to write and RECITE poems about their greatest
challenges, fears and anxieties in a way that took sharing to a whole
new level. And when it was over, most of them gave him scores of high
4's and 5's.
"David also inspired me to write a poem to one of my members as a "
Care-frontational" way to deal with the topics of " Attentiveness,
Focus and Respect", which I delivered in a One-to-One.
"David will be returning next to Southern California in November to
attend the international conference and I would enthusiastically
recommend him to any group. He is truly a Vistage treasure."
