Associate Director

EMBA, Grad. Dip. Legal Practice, LLB, B. MGT

"I’m a genuinely curious person. If my days are full of variety, learning, challenge and an ability to add value, then I consider those days well-spent. Consulting lets me do this, all while meeting and working with some of the most interesting and dedicated people imaginable.

My work at Grosvenor involves spending about two-thirds of my time on consulting projects, and a third of my time helping to shape GPG into an organisation that continually impresses clients and provides an enticing employment environment for our current and future team members."

Over his 15-year consulting career, Adam has worked with leaders across the not for profit and public sectors helping to build proud, passionate and purposeful teams. He is also actively involved in mentoring younger professionals, volunteering with Seeing Eye Dogs Australia and advising not for profits, including holding a committee position on the not for profit 'The Big Hug Box', a fundraising initiative for Cure Cancer Australia.
