From yoga to being confused for smugglers in Helsinki! It seems that the life of a skipper and Psychologist is never dull! Read on for our full interview with the man himself, Adam Tuffnell.

What is coming up this year that you are most looking forward to?


I actually started 2015 by speaking at a global conference in Madrid where I explored a brief on New Leadership! Coming up I also have some great projects working with businesses, developing leadership and teams alike.

On a personal note, I have recently taken up some training for the mind in the form of Karate and Yoga – Where I am enjoying learning new skills and practices! Interested

What would you say has been your most challenging event so far?

Event-wise, things have run fairly smoothly. On the water, the biggest challenge I have personally faced was leading through a crisis of skippering a yacht as it was sinking in the teeth of a violent Atlantic Storm, some 1500 miles from dry land.

Tell us one thing that nobody else knows about you?

I believe that it’s good to move outside of your comfort zone every so often; I however intend to go beyond that and tackle something that scares me to the bone . . . appearing at an open mic night in a comedy club; I feel nervous just thinking about it!

First or favourite corporate event?

That feels quiet straight forward since they are one and the same! Being invited by the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, as a guest speaker to talk on leadership which was a great privilege and experience!
