In Detail

Adrian leads the IHD's leadership research and programme development, mentors chief executives in the public and private sectors and coach's top teams. He spends much of his time on conference platforms challenging the old models of corporate leadership and offering practical and inspiring alternatives for managing change in business, education and society. When these are aligned in an individual, we witness a transformation in their personal power and impact. Individuals take responsibility for unleashing their own potential; managers unlock high performance in others and leaders create an inspired environment. Adrian believes that storytelling energy and drive are key forces in organisations.


Adrian Gilpin has designed and led some of the most effective and sustainable change programmes and many organisations have retained him to coach their Managing Directors and senior executives in high performance leadership coaching.
