Adrian Kingsford

Hi, I’m Adrian, and I’m a CoachSultantVisor; a term not commonly recognised in business or coaching, that’s because I made it up!

It’s a hybrid of three distinct roles, which blend to offer a holistic yet flexible approach, moving along the scale as your needs demand.

As a Coach, I support you and your teams develop the right behaviour and frame of mind, enhance your skills, become aligned, be accountable, overcome obstacles, find organisational health, and achieve transformational goals.

As a Consultant, I provide recommendations and strategies to improve the business's operations, efficiency, profitability, and tactical growth.

As an Advisor, I offer expert insights and guidance from an external perspetive, helping you navigate your future direction, key decision-making, and longer-term strategic growth.
