Adam Woodhall joined Carbon Smart as an Associate Director, bringing 20 years’ commercial experience in communications, people and organisational development, with the last 10 years specifically in sustainability. He has worked with a diverse range of large organisations: Network Rail, PwC, Parcelforce, Allianz Insurance, First Direct Bank, University of Westminster and many others.
Stakeholder engagement and behaviour change are what Adam is best known for, having run a specialist consultancy, PeopleProfitPlanet, in addition to a broad knowledge of sustainability and how organisations operate.
His knowledge and expertise led him to write a guide called ‘Empower Change’ that will be published in February. The guide is aimed at professionals who want to lead change in their business by empowering employees.
Ben Murray, MD of Carbon Smart, commented:
“Adam brings a strong track record of engaging stakeholders and delivering innovation, and I’m excited about what he adds to the company. A person with his background rarely comes available, so we were delighted to invite him to join the team.”
When asked to summarise how he felt about his new role, Adam said:
“I’m thrilled to join Carbon Smart, as they have an enviable list of long-standing clients. It was clear to me that the team build excellent relationships with the people they work with and deliver high quality results. I’m looking forward to working with Carbon Smart’s existing clients to help them get sustainability right and win new clients so they can achieve the same results. The new ESOS regulation will be at the forefront of our work this year, and we are already supporting a large number of organisations.”
“The Empower Change guide is a distillation of my commercial experience over the last 20 years, so its launch is going to be an excellent opportunity to help the industry that has given me so much over the last 10 years.”
Adam will be responsible for growing the business with fellow directors, Ben Murray and Louise Quarrell, along with the rest of the team.
