'Unlock Your Creativity'

David Adams,
Group Chairman of Vistage International

David is a business coach working mostly with chief executives and senior managers as individuals and in teams; he has more than 30 years’ experience in financial services. A chartered accountant, he has been a stockbroker and corporate financier.  Previously chief executive of Henry Cooke Group plc., a leading provincial house, he was subsequently head of private clients at national investment managers, Capel-Cure Myers, based at their head office in London.

David helps business people and others to open up their creativity or drive their thinking from left to right brain in order to use the whole brain and so drive innovation. By performing several examples of powerful poems he reveals how we can write, even if we've not done so since schooldays. David was inspired to start examining the effect of poetry after receiving a poem his daughter wrote him for his birthday which he said "knocked me out" and he is particularly passionate about the creative affect that women have on business and the world.
