I help leaders create intelligent organisations optimised to embrace disruption
Leaders today are ill-equipped to handle increasing disruption and are looking for an approach that enables their organisations to adapt accordingly rather than ‘putting all their chips on black’ and hoping for the best.
Unfortunately, the business schools and the business literature reflect more innocent times. Thus leaders find themselves in uncharted territory without a map and compass.
My approach recognises that to engage effectively with one’s environment, it is better to operate as a living organism than an inert, process-oriented factory. This approach plays to our natural intelligence. It also makes use of new technologies to enhance our organisation’s ability to sense, decide and act accordingly.

Some career highlights
We wanted someone who would engage our leadership differently. Ade did this brilliantly. Engaging, fast paced and multifaceted. Just what was needed to shake things up a little in the last session of our conference!
We recently held a conference in Milan around “Digital” for our senior partners throughout the MED region (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and Ade joined us by VC as a keynote speaker. Even by VC Ade kept the audience captive with lots of note taking and it also provoked a lot of discussion after the event. One of the most compelling keynote speakers that we have had in the MED region.
Ade understands business and IT opportunities through the lens of executives and how to present this back in a concise manner with clear takeaways.
Ade spoke at an event for around 250 of our UK & Israel Technology team. Ade has a fantastic presentation style, and it was clear in the prep calls that he was able to take our overall theme of the event and link that to his presentation. I would highly recommend Ade as a motivational speaker and thought leader.
Ade McCormack sounds a much-needed clarion call for IT to “grow up” and become a mature business function.
