Adrian Kirk

Coaching Team

Adrian helps people become aware of their impact; be that regarding their presence, their communication style or how they lead. His approach is focused on raising awareness of how mind, emotion, body and voice work in harmony in order to create a congruent message for others to receive.

After 10 years in business, he re-trained as an actor; then quickly realised he could use all his knowledge and experience to help people in business use them self more effectively. More than 20 years later, he is an established specialist, showing people how to be adaptable leaders, engaging presenters and influential communicators.

His approach is interactive, experiential and practical, enabling you to develop greater flexibility in how to adapt yourself when engaging different situations.

Adrian’s first book (Pieces of the Possible) is written as a story and is geared around helping people create personal change. His second book (The ABC of Being) is focused on guiding the reader to re-connect with an innate mental and physical state of stillness; a state where we are all more efficient.
