About Mr Adam Tuffnell BA

Leading from Within

Few people will face life threatening multiple disasters in their lifetime. Fewer still have the expertise to dissect those disasters in order to understand how their leadership contributed to survival. As a professional round the world yachtsman and with his background in psychology, Adam is able to deliver just this.

Teamwork • Leadership • Communication • Fun

His four tenets of Teamwork, Leadership, Communication and Fun translate highly effectively from offshore to office and are designed to be applied in any business situation. Adam Tuffnell will show you how to find this balance.

Bio
Throughout his 20-year sailing career, Adam Tuffnell has sailed in some of the most hostile environments on the planet, ranging from the freezing wilderness of the Southern Ocean through to the debilitating humidity of the tropics.

He is one of a select group of sailors who have circumnavigated the world against prevailing winds and currents, a feat which until recently was considered impossible. He has faced hurricanes, collisions, flooding and the emergency medical evacuation of a crewmate.

Illustrating the importance of the four tenets through his own significant experience and by reviewing well-known disasters with an insider’s expert eye, Adam discusses what lessons we can all learn about team dynamics and how we can avert disasters in our personal and professional lives.



My Specialist Subjects

Teamwork

Illustrating the importance of the four tenets through his own significant experience and by reviewing well-known disasters with an insider’s expert eye, Adam discusses what lessons we can all learn about team dynamics and how we can avert disasters in our personal and professional lives.

Leadership

An engaging and challenging review which references both real life experience of disaster and famous tragedies in order to assess the role of critical failures and successes of leadership in the outcome of these situations.

Communication

This is not simply a presentation about affective delegation and leading from the front...
whether it is an aggressive pitch against competition, internal crisis, hurricane force winds, the same lessons apply.

Fun

This presentation bridges the gap between offshore and office to demonstrate how to:
o Challenge the 'norm' of observations and conclusions
o Solve problems from within the team environment
o Ensure the accountability of decision making processes o Manage team dynamics

Testimonials

“Adam was extremely insightful into his experiences at sea and utilised this against core competencies for everyday life. His experiences had the whole audience on the edge of their seat with his many stories of his near death experiences and how he managed to get out of them. He demonstrates how important teamwork, fun, leadership and communication are in all circumstances. I would definitely recommend him.”

BAE

"Adam was the Keynote Speaker at our recent Conference. His presentation was excellent. It was entertaining, gripping, funny and surprisingly relevant to my own job as Owner/Manager of a print business and a team of people. He was a breath of fresh air in what can be a very long day of presentations."

Pontaprint

“Very professional an provided us all with a fantastic insight to how large corporations can make what seems small mistakes but by failing to take ownership and stand up to be heard can result in devastating consequences... the material was world class and Adam seamlessly connected it to the business we work in, which in turn helped everybody relate to the programme and understand key management traits.”
