What gets Adrienne out of bed?

Coffee (and my early rising baby!)

I’m here to do my part to make a brilliant future – not just a better one – turning up the confidence dial for one incredible person and one courageous conversation at a time.

Who are Adrienne’s role models?

The famous ones: Nelson Mandela; RBG; Brené Brown; Adam Grant; Greta Thunberg.

My real heroes are a part of my every day. They are my husband, my parents, Rania Awad and Clarissa Ramsey (Founding Smoothies) and my few other very nearest and dearest besties. They all “do the work” and “walk the talk” – they show up in all their human glory and create incredible experiences, art and businesses. They challenge, they struggle, they achieve and they love with every part of their being.

What is the ONE social issue that Adrienne would like to fix?

What? The empathy deficit.

Why? I want to see a world where we don’t have refugees. I want to live in a community where people see themselves as global citizens with a natural reflex to recognise the humanity and rights of those fleeing discrimination, persecution and inherently eligible to participate in a healthy economy and environment.

How? Connection.

• A free and diverse press able to do invest in detailed investigative journalism and to report on the truth no matter the consequences for those in power.

• New social media models not based on monetary growth, but on truth and curiosity.

• Inclusion, sharing stories and giving platforms for the stories of the varied faces, minds and hearts of humanity.

Three words that describe Adrienne

Empathic, honest, courageous.

What smoothie ingredient is Adrienne?

Blueberry – the superfood that packs great nutritional punch, fights what makes us ill and tastes LUSH!

Effective change management to hit your strategic goals

Effective Change Management For Digital Transformation

It’s great to recognise the importance of change management to hit your strategic goals. There is more to it than project management spreadsheets and scripted regular updates on technical releases. One of my clients provides an excellent case study of what happens when there isn’t a change management strategy, and how turn the ship around […]

Doing what’s right over what’s easy

When leading ourselves, others and our businesses, how can we better live our purpose and values? Clear the path to choose whats right over what’s easy.

When your values lose their meaning

Working as a team with the same North Star and shared motivations for problem solving is the ideal. What I see too often is a gap (sometimes a whole time zone) between what a company, a leader, a person says and what they do.
