Adam in a few words

Communications Specialist with more than 15 years' external, internal and digital comms experience.

My strengths are in engaging brand storytelling, content development, managing multi-channel communication campaigns on time and to budget, and successfully managing reputation to build positive brands from the inside, out.

I've spent the past four years leading small project teams in the planning, delivery and evaluation of strategic communication campaigns and projects in the healthcare, pharmacy and retail sectors.

I have a passion and love for agriculture, Horticulture and the environment. I would love to use my skills on projects in this area and build my experience.

I don’t shy away from tactical work and have strong experience in:

- Thought leadership for owned and earned media
- SLT and Executive communications
- Media relations
- Community and stakeholder engagement
- Sustainability/ESG/CSR communications
- Issues and crisis management
- Newsroom strategy
- Employee engagement
- Copywriting, copy checking and editing

Building and maintaining great relationships is a fundamental part of my approach to work. This enables me to operate well in large, matrixed organisations and in partnership working environments with diverse workforces. I can successfully manage and coach high performing team members in-person and remotely.

I’m passionate about equity, visibility and belonging, focusing on the lived experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community. I have brought about change in this area in workplaces; most recently as Communications Lead for Pride Alliance - the first UK-based employee resource group at Walgreens Boots Alliance.

Outside of work I volunteer for the youth mental health charity Beyond. I support their PR activity when needed, moderate their Youth Board community, advise on topics relevant to the LGBTQIA+ youth community, create content for social and, help plan and deliver their annual ‘Now and Beyond’ Mental Health Festival.
