Adam Tuffnell


Adam Tuffnell is a business and life survivor.

Throughout his twenty-year sailing career, Adam has navigated some of the planet’s most hostile environments, ranging from the freezing wilderness of the Southern Ocean, through to the debilitating humidity of the tropics.

Adam is one of a small group of sailors who have circumnavigated the world against prevailing winds and currents; a feat was considered as impossible. He has faced hurricanes, collisions, flooding and the emergency medical evacuation of a crewmate. Adam’s lessons help avert disasters in personal and professional lives.

With a background in psychology, Adam brilliantly explains how teamwork, leadership and communication can be effectively applied in any business situation.

Core areas include:

Value of shared feelings in tensioned environments.
Leadership under extreme pressure.
Transparency in situational awareness.
Challenging the ‘norm’ of observations and conclusions.
Solving problems from within the team environment.
Accountability and the decision-making processes.
Managing team dynamics.


I would recommend your services to any company or group who would like to listen to your very interesting presentation on leadership challenges.
Mike Willis CEO The Business Club Northants.

I enjoyed your presentation to the group last night. I was impressed with how you expanded the 4 key tenets of Teamwork, Leadership, Communication and Fun and made them thought provoking in a business environment… Your message was well received and totally relevant, thank you.
Mark Burberry, BCM Business Cost Management

Adam’s presentation was just what we needed to kick-start our new programme and very well received. He certainly gave us food for thought.
Kim Newton-Woof – OD Consultant – University of Southampton

Adam brings to bare his experience as a psychologist, businessman and a professional sailor to deliver a highly educational training package. The overall results are as outstanding as they are unique.
John Regan, Angel Investor.

Adam creates a learning environment that helps teams develop collectively and to react as an effective group to overcome challenges that are very different from most people’s day-to-day experience.’
Jonathan Burrows, MD Ask4 Group.

Adam’s December 2020 virtual presentation to a client in India was reviewed as ‘informative’, ‘fantastic’ and ‘inspirational’.
