An inspiring and award-winning transformational leader, Adriènne brings over 25 years of leadership experience in high-profile public sector organisations spanning community funding, local authorities, safeguarding, criminal records and nuclear regulation, helping others to create environments in which businesses and their people thrive.

Adriènne has spoken to global audiences about the importance of psychological safety, inclusion and cognitive diversity to high performing teams, especially in high hazard industries.
